As more and more organizations migrate their applications to the cloud, cloud native computing has become the dominant way to approach software development and execution. In the meantime, security threats are growing more sophisticated and widespread every day. Protecting your applications from these threats requires the ability to defend them at runtime, when they’re most vulnerable to attacks.
This practical guide introduces you to Falco, the open source standard for continuous risk and threat detection across Kubernetes, containers, and the cloud. Falco creator Loris Degioanni and core maintainer Leonardo Grasso bring you up to speed on cloud native threat detection basics and show you how to get Falco up and running. You’ll then dive into advanced topics such as deploying Falco in production and writing your own security rules.
You’ll learn how to

Leverage runtime security in cloud native environments
Detect configuration changes and unexpected behavior in the cloud
Protect containers, Kubernetes, and cloud applications using Falco
Run, deploy, and customize Falco using advanced concepts
Deploy, configure, and maintain Falco in a production environment
Improve your organization’s ability to pass compliance audits
Implement threat detection for containers, Kubernetes, and cloud apps
