VMblog: As a KubeCon 2019 sponsor, how can people find you at the show?
DivvyCloud: DivvyCloud is a Platinum Sponsor, booth # P17, 10x20 custom booth. We will have 12 DivvyCloud staff at Kubcon and Cloud-Native Security Day
VMblog: If an attendee likes what they see and hear at your booth... what message about your product can you send them back with to sell their boss on your technology?
DivvyCloud: DivvyCloud software is designed to be agentless and standalone. You can apply it to any computing environment - public cloud or private software-defined infrastructure. The way DivvyCloud interacts with the host environment and Kubernetes is by way of their respective
APIs. DivvyCloud continuously interacts with the APIs to gather information about the state of the hosts and the Kubernetes clusters of interest. These hosts can be Google Cloud, AWx`S, Azure, or a private data center that can expose infrastructure information via an API.
Once DivvyCloud is set up and targeted at the relevant host and Kubernetes clusters, it starts pulling down data about the environments - servers, security groups, load balancers, network-attached stores, S3 buckets, and any resource that is exposed via an API. This information is then unified into a single data model that represents the infrastructure and represents containment holistically.
VMblog: What are some of the reasons why you believe a KubeCon attendee should add you to their MUST SEE list?
DivvyCloud: Because they will have an opportunity to see DivvyCloud automation in action. DivvyCloud allows developers to engage in more experimentation and innovation. It provides the trust and verification that system administrators need to ensure that work is being done according to industry standard security guidelines and well-established best practices.
We will be able to show KubeCon attendees how automated remediation technology is a powerful tool for companies that use Kubernetes to get quality software into the hands of customers at web scale.
DivvyCloud and its holistic approach to supporting the CIS Benchmarks for Kubernetes provide a competitive advantage that is unequaled for companies that put Kubernetes at the forefront of their digital infrastructure.
