Kubernetes security for cloud-native teams
Kubernetes is the go-to platform for managing containerized applications. But with the complexities of deploying, managing, and scaling containers, it’s easy for Kubernetes security to get left behind.
Bridgecrew helps keep your containerized configurations secure and compliant through automated Kubernetes scanning, continuous visibility, and actionable insights.
Kubernetes manifest to workload security
Get developer-first security for your Kubernetes-deployed applications with Bridgecrew’s infrastructure as code (IaC), container, and workload scanning. Find Kubernetes misconfigurations and vulnerabilities earlier in build-time and ensure issues that slip through the cracks get identified in runtime.
Bridgecrew supports finding security issues in Kubernetes YAML with hundreds of out-of-the-box policies so that security can be embedded earlier in the Kubernetes development lifecycle.
Helm charts make Kubernetes manifests much more consumable through templates, and Bridgecrew makes it easy to check them for misconfigurations in resulting Kubernetes manifests.
Kustomize allows you to templatize Kubernetes manifests without recreating entire manifests, and with Bridgecrew you can scan Kustomize natively for secure-by-default Kubernetes environments.
In addition to helping you identify misconfigurations in Kubernetes manifests and templates, Bridgecrew can also identify security issues within your container images.
Workloads and clouds
As a last line of defense, Bridgecrew also enables periodic scanning of all Kubernetes workloads and is equipped to identify misconfigurations for managed Kubernetes services such as EKS and GKS.

Getting started with Bridgecrew for Kubernetes security
Shift your workload security left with Bridgecrew without sacrificing runtime visibility into misconfigurations that can put your containers in jeopardy.
- Run Bridgecrew locally via CLI or Checkov VS Code extension to get real-time scanning of Kubernetes YAML or Helm charts to find even the smallest misconfigurations.
- Integrate Bridgecrew with your hosted repository to add collaborative code reviews and to fix feedback on each commit.
- Run Bridgecrew via your CI/CD pipeline to enforce policy guardrails before your Kubernetes workloads are deployed.
- Deploy Bridgecrew into your running Kubernetes workloads for continuous visibility into risk and compliance violations.
