Overview

Application modernization, business transformation and cloud migration are significantly increasing container security solution adoption. Yet, application containers can introduce a new set of threat risks that require specialized security in areas like image, registries, orchestrators and hosts.

Getting the right level of visibility into the container environment can be a problem when cloud service providers (CSPs) don’t offer this by default.

Benefits
