Portshift, the cybersecurity industry’s leading provider of Kubernetes-native security solutions, announced that the company’s Cloud Workload Protection platform is now available through the Red Hat Marketplace. Red Hat Marketplace is an open cloud exchange for enterprise customers to discover, try, purchase, deploy, and manage certified container-based software across environments—public and private, cloud and on-premises. Through the marketplace, customers can take advantage of responsive support, streamlined billing and contracting, simplified governance, and single-dashboard visibility across clouds.
The Portshift Cloud Workload Protection platform delivers rich context, declarative policy enforcement, advanced risk profiling, vulnerability management, runtime detection and remediation for cloud native applications. It is the only solution of its kind offering an agentless approach for seamless integration and native enforcement. The platform empowers DevOps and security teams to continuously protect their cloud application environment – leveraging this lightweight solution to help protect against threats and vulnerabilities across images, containers, runtime deployments and Red Hat OpenShift infrastructure.
“We are pleased to introduce our award-winning Cloud Workload Protection platform to DevOps professionals through the Red Hat Marketplace,” said Ran Ilany, CEO and Co-Founder, Portshift. “The Portshift team looks forward to supporting the popular Red Hat OpenShift platform and security initiatives across the entire containerized applications lifecycle.”
Built in collaboration with Red Hat and IBM, Red Hat Marketplace delivers a hybrid multi-cloud trifecta for organizations moving into the next era of computing: a robust ecosystem of partners, an industry-leading Kubernetes container platform, and award-winning commercial support—all on a highly scalable backend powered by IBM. A private, personalized marketplace is also available through Red Hat Marketplace Select, enabling clients to provide their teams with easier access to curated software their organizations have pre-approved.
“We believe Red Hat Marketplace is an essential destination to unlock the value of cloud investments,” said Lars Herrmann, senior director of technology partnerships, Red Hat. “With the marketplace, we are making it as fast and easy as possible for companies to implement the tools and technologies that can help them succeed in this hybrid multi-cloud world. We’ve simplified the steps to find and purchase tools like the Portshift Cloud Workload Protection platform that are tested, certified and supported on Red Hat OpenShift, and we’ve removed operational barriers to deploying and managing these technologies on Kubernetes-native infrastructure.”
“Through Red Hat Marketplace, we’re expanding our ecosystem together with partners like Portshift and helping our customers thrive in a hybrid multi-cloud world,” said Sandesh Bhat, IBM General Manager, Open Cloud Technology & Applications. “Container-based environments are the future of enterprise technology, and Red Hat OpenShift is the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform. We’re excited to simplify software purchases and adoption for our clients through a curated private Marketplace experience.”
Red Hat Marketplace is designed to meet the unique needs of developers, procurement teams and IT leaders through simplified and streamlined access to popular enterprise software. All solutions available through the marketplace have been tested and certified for Red Hat OpenShift, allowing them to run anywhere OpenShift runs. A containers-based approach helps ensure that applications can be run and managed the exact same way, regardless of the underlying cloud infrastructure. This gives companies the flexibility to run their workloads on premise or in any public or private cloud with improved portability and confidence that their applications and data are protected against vendor lock-in.
