Install Container Defender in a cluster

Container orchestrators provide native capabilities for deploying agents, such as Defender, to every node in the cluster. Prisma Cloud leverages these capabilities to install Defender.
The process for deploying Container Defender to a cluster can be found in the dedicated orchestrator-specific install guides.
If you don’t have kubectl access to your cluster (or oc access for OpenShift), you can deploy Defender DaemonSets directly from the Console UI.
Prerequisites:
  • You’ve created a kubeconfig credential for your cluster so that Prisma Cloud can access it to deploy the Defender DaemonSet.
  1. Log into Prisma Cloud Console.
  2. Go to
    Manage > Defenders > Manage
    .
  3. Click
    DaemonSets
    .
  4. For each cluster in the table, click
    Actions > Deploy
    .
    The table shows a count of deployed Defenders and their version number.
