Automation is inherent to microservices and container orchestration. Security? Not so much. Container security continues to lag behind in organizations' rush into cloud native modernization, with little security automation usually in place beyond vulnerability scanning and the occasional security policy "suggestion." This session will review the limitations of eBPF-centric security, make clear why it is limited for automating behavioral-based security policies, and demonstrate how to fully automate (hands-off!) behavioral detection, policy creation, and multi-cluster deployment of zero-trust perimeters using NeuVector's patented and unique approach to the growing challenge. Get this right, and you'll be able to automatically detect -- and even prevent -- anomalous activities and zero-day exploits.
