Batten down the hatches.

KSOC is an event-driven SaaS platform built to automatically remediate Kubernetes security risks and enforce least-privileged access control across distributed cluster infrastructures.

What is KSOC?

Kubernetes Security, Simplified.

The KSOC unified security control plane gives security teams the ability to discover and remediate Kubernetes misconfigurations and vulnerabilities across any cloud without the use of intrusive agents by leveraging existing cloud and Kubernetes APIs.

Kubernetes Infrastructure Inventory

KSOC automatically discovers and tracks all Kubernetes assets in your environments on any cloud provider. This includes clusters, container registries, and cloud logs. You can’t protect what you are not aware of.

Kubernetes Detection and Response

Kubernetes' complexity and abstraction leave blind spots from a security perspective. KSOC uses an event-driven architecture to find security issues in real time. We take it a step further through automatic remediation via code or distributed policy enforcement aligning with security frameworks.

Kubernetes Entitlement Management

Kubernetes user and service account entitlements are often overly permissive and one of the leading causes for cluster compromise. KSOC monitors in-cluster Role-Based Access Control activities, alerts you about changes, and remediates over-privileged access automatically.


Not your average security platform.

KSOC enables security teams to deploy with confidence. We strongly believe that our unique approach to container security solves a real problem that will only get bigger as enterprises continue to expand their cloud native architectures.

Easy Install

Our simple, no-nonsense install process can get you up and running with KSOC in minutes, letting you get back to what’s important.

Fast Remediation

KSOC makes it easy to spot and fix common misconfigurations and vulnerabilities, as well as some not-so-common ones.

Intelligent Policies

KSOC can automatically create enforcement policies that are tailored for your existing environments and tool chains.

Smart Access Control

KSOC guides teams to enforce least-privileged access control to Kubernetes resources, granting access to only those that need it.


Every workflow is carefully crafted to help and optimize the modern security operator. We pride ourselves on making tools that are intuitive and delightful to use, delivering actionable insights with real security outcomes.

Kubernetes on the Road

Jimmy Mesta starts speaking to companies and conferences about concerns and best practices in cloud-native security.

Containerization Explodes

In less than three years, containerized infrastructure grows to become a $950 million industry and the primary enabler of the internet at large. Kubernetes has transformed the modern web.

KSOC is Born

The wheels are in motion to build the next generation of information security. KSOC was founded from a deep understanding of cloud-native security, honed by years of experience in industry and the technical community.

Sophisticated Threats

94% of Kubernetes-powered companies have experienced at least one security incident in a 12-month period. While Kubernetes is a great orchestrator, it has a set of unique security concerns not yet addressed in the market.
