Organizations are scaling Kubernetes deployments with container platforms running on a mix of on-prem, cloud, and multi-cloud infrastructure. However, not all users are taking a standardized approach to building multiple clusters on a common distribution and on a single infrastructure with common security tools.

Lack of a centralized, unified multi-cluster approach to security and observability as well as troubleshooting, compliance, and policy management results in dozens of clusters that are deployed and managed independently throughout an organization, with very little uniformity in the way they are secured. This adds complexity for DevOps teams, who must adapt to different cluster environments.

Security is sometimes an afterthought, leaving clusters vulnerable to attack and creating a corporate liability. Regardless of who dropped the ball, IT remains accountable for security and compliance and must deal with the consequences of any breach.

How can IT gain security and observability control for multiple clusters spread across disparate hybrid and multi-cloud environments without crippling the productivity of DevOps teams running the clusters?
