Key Features

Analyze images

Analyze container images

Analize container images to find known software vulnerabilities including official OS packages, unofficial packages and third-party libraries such as NodeJS NPM, Python PiP, Ruby GEM, and Java JAR/WAR.

Image Scanning


Image scanning can be run at multiple points in the delivery pipeline: during build time in the CI server and to images available on a container registry or already running. You can just report or break the pipeline until the image is compliant with your policy.

Security Policies

Define & enforce security policies

Define policies to govern security vulnerabilities, whitelist or blacklist OS packages and third-party libraries, configuration file contents, language modules or software licenses. Check if your container images and Dockerfiles are following your policy and security best practices.



Integrate with your orchestration platform, such as Kubernetes, to ensure that only images that are certified by your organization are run in your cluster, using an Admission Controller.Integrate with your existing workflow
