Why use Trivy on Plural?

Plural helps you deploy and manage the lifecycle of open-source applications on Kubernetes. Our platform combines the scalability and observability benefits of managed SaaS with the data security, governance, and compliance benefits of self-hosting Trivy.

If you need more than just Trivy, look for other cloud-native and open-source tools in our marketplace of curated applications to leapfrog complex deployments and get started quickly.

Introduction

There are lots of security tools in the cloud native world, created by Aqua and by others, for identifying and informing users about security issues in Kubernetes workloads and infrastructure components. However powerful and useful they might be, they tend to sit alongside Kubernetes, with each new product requiring users to learn a separate set of commands and installation steps in order to operate them and find critical security information.

The Trivy-Operator leverages trivy security tools by incorporating their outputs into Kubernetes CRDs (Custom Resource Definitions) and from there, making security reports accessible through the Kubernetes API. This way users can find and view the risks that relate to different resources in what we call a Kubernetes-native way.

The Trivy operator automatically updates security reports in response to workload and other changes on a Kubernetes cluster, generating the following reports:

  • Vulnerability Scans: Automated vulnerability scanning for Kubernetes workloads.
  • ConfigAudit Scans: Automated configuration audits for Kubernetes resources with predefined rules or custom Open Policy Agent (OPA) policies.
  • Exposed Secret Scans: Automated secret scans which find and detail the location of exposed Secrets within your cluster.
  • RBAC scans: Role Based Access Control scans provide detailed information on the access rights of the different resources installed.

Trivy-operator Overview

Status

Although we are trying to keep new releases backward compatible with previous versions, this project is still incubating, and some APIs and Custom Resource Definitions may change.

Usage

The official Documentation provides detailed installation, configuration, troubleshooting, and quick start guides.

You can install the Trivy-operator Operator with Static YAML Manifests and follow the Getting Started guide to see how vulnerability and configuration audit reports are generated automatically.

Contributing

At this early stage we would love your feedback on the overall concept of Trivy-Operator. Over time, we'd love to see contributions integrating different security tools so that users can access security information in standard, Kubernetes-native ways.

  • See Contributing for information about setting up your development environment, and the contribution workflow that we expect.
  • Please ensure that you are following our Code Of Conduct during any interaction with the Aqua projects and their community.

What companies are saying about us

We no longer needed a dedicated DevOps team; instead, we actively participated in the industrialization and deployment of our applications through Plural. Additionally, it allowed us to quickly gain proficiency in Terraform and Helm.

Walid El Bouchikhi
Data Engineer at Beamy

I have neither the patience nor the talent for DevOps/SysAdmin work, and yet I've deployed four enterprise-caliber open-source apps on Kubernetes... since 9am today. Bonkers.

Sawyer Waugh
Head of Engineering at Justifi

This is awesome. You saved me hours of further DevOps work for our v1 release. Just to say, I really love Plural.

Ismael Goulani
CTO & Data Engineer at Modeo

Wow! First of all I want to say thank you for creating Plural! It solves a lot of problems coming from a non-DevOps background. You guys are amazing!

Joey Taleño
Head of Data at Poplar Homes

We have been using Plural for complex Kubernetes deployments of Kubeflow and are excited with the possibilities it provides in making our workflows simpler and more efficient.

Jürgen Stary
Engineering Manager @ Alexander Thamm

Plural has been awesome, it’s super fast and intuitive to get going and there is zero-to-no overhead of the app management.

Case StudyHow Fnatic Deploys Their Data Stack with Plural

Fnatic is a leading global esports performance brand headquartered in London, focused on leveling up gamers. At the core of Fnatic’s success is its best-in-class data team. The Fnatic data team relies on third-party applications to serve different business functions with every member of the organization utilizing data daily. While having access to an abundance of data is great, it opens up a degree of complexity when it comes to answering critical business questions and in-game analytics for gaming members.

To answer these questions, the data team began constructing a data stack to solve these use cases. Since the team at Fnatic are big fans of open-source they elected to build their stack with popular open-source technologies.
