June 2024 Platform Releases

Generally Available

  • Kubernetes Compliance for Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)

    Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) is now generally available for all customers by our Kubernetes Security Posture Management. See Kubernetes Compliance Integrations to learn how to integrate your GKE clusters with Lacework.

    Since public preview, we have significantly increased the automated policy coverage, moving from the ~40%, based on recommendations by CIS, up to ~70% in the latest release, providing a much greater level of automated GKE compliance coverage.

    More details regarding the recently automated policies can be found in the Compliance Policy Changelog for the 16th May 2024 release.

Known Issues

  • Dashboard shows spike of non-compliant resources on 25th March 2024 - A fix was released on 25th March 2024 to include cloud accounts that are non-compliant due to compliance policy violations. This will have impacted the trend of the Compliance metric data and the number of resources seen in the Top non-compliant resources table.

    From 25th March 2024, cloud accounts are flagged as non-compliant even when there is no related resource (within the account) that can be assessed for compliance. See our Dashboard FAQs for further explanation.
