Kubernetes-native controls and workflows

Admission control enforcement

Verify critical security policies using an Admission Controller before applications are allowed to deploy.

Helm charts for deployment

Splunk integration

Send StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform alerts to Splunk for consolidated monitoring and management.

Improved threat detection

Process visualization

Understand what’s running in your deployments with improved process activity visualization features.

Control access to StackRox features using user metadata from your identity provider.

Platform updates

Command-line interface (roxctl)
