What is Cisco Panoptica?

Cisco Panoptica is a Kubernetes-native platform delivering security for containers and Kubernetes. It leverages the power of Kubernetes and the service-mesh layer to secure containers and cloud-native applications.

With a single Panoptica pod deployment (running as an admission controller), DevOps can leverage the power of our "agent-less" (not a DaemonSet) solution to protect from vulnerabilities across images, containers, Kubernetes, and runtime deployments.

Continuous hardening

Panoptica ensures a continuous hardening process during the entire containerized applications lifecycle, from code, through the CI/CD pipeline, and on to runtime in your Kubernetes environments. Using the service-mesh layer, Panoptica delivers strong network communication security inside and outside the cluster.

Protect the CI/CD pipeline

Panoptica starts upstream in the CI/CD pipeline. It identifies your workloads as you develop and deploy them. With these identities, you gain visibility into the workloads running on your environments, and control over what is running.

Zero Trust

Panoptica is based on the zero trust model, that makes no assumptions about workloads running within your security perimeter. Workloads are identified as either known (to Panoptica) or unknown entities, and you control which can run and with whom they connect.

Scalable Security

Proven at scale, the Panoptica platform is able to support thousands of deployments running across your Kubernetes environment, their connections inside and outside the cluster.

Application Security: Consumed APIs Visibility and Risk Detection

The Panoptica platform provide unique application security angle by tracking the APIs used by micro services and classifying their security and risk level allowing users to restrict abused or breached APIs with continuous monitoring of their risk levels and dynamic updates.
