Container security solutions 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.


Identify vulnerabilities in containers            Pinpoint and catch container vulnerabilities before they multiply throughout your environment.  Consolidate images in container registry            Mitigate the risk of container images vulnerabilities on public registries through discovery and remediation. Automate container security with orchestrators            Tools and expertise to help automate the deployment, management, scaling, and networking of your containers  Secured container hosts and remediation            Remediate container host vulnerabilities with visibility into the installed software that interacts with the underlying hardware. 

Use cases
