Linux and Container Security: Removing module dependencies

Bitdefender recently announced GravityZone Security for Containers, expanding our cloud workload security (CWS) by offering run-time support for containers and infrastructures with Linux kernel module (LKM) independence for the Bitdefender technology.

The use of containers for cloud workloads has grown rapidly in recent years, as the tools can help developers speed application delivery and digital transformation initiatives. However, this can bring increased organizational risk as security teams remain largely blind to suspicious activity in their Linux environments and container workloads.

Some of the benefits and features of GravityZone Security for Containers include:

Modular architecture improves performance and security efficacy without kernel crashes Detection of application zero-day and known exploit attacks takes place in real-time Complete security visibility over all containers and workloads across hybrid or multi-cloud environments Kernel module independence

Most containers operate within UNIX and Linux environments. The kernel is the main component of a Linux operating system (OS) and has the privileged ability to oversee and control the entire system that the containers reside within. Kernel panic is a relatively common safety measure that occurs when an OS detects an internal fatal error and makes the decision to shut everything down. Though this is a relatively
