# Polaris

Polaris (opens new window) is an open source tool for checking workload configurations against a set of best-practices. It can be configured and fine-tuned for each organization that uses it, and custom checks can be written using JSON Schema.

Polaris validation checks fall into several different categories:

  • Health Checks
  • Images
  • Networking
  • Resources
  • Security

# Remediation

Remediating Polaris issues involves editing the Helm chart or YAML for your workloads. This is probably stored in an infrastructure-as-code repository. Once you've made the necessary changes, you'll need to redeploy.
