Aqua’s security platform for Docker container-based applications is a comprehensive solution. With features that include risk management for the container development pipeline, full CI/CD automation, advanced runtime defenses that include automated profiling of container behavior, network nano-segmentation for containers, and secrets management, it simplifies the process securing containerized applications and removes obstacles to adopting Docker in the enterprise.
A common concern of running a container environment is how to ensure that only authorized images can run as containers. Organizations are also challenged with finding a way to implement software and configuration standards in those images, across all product groups and development teams.
Everyone is talking about containers these days, but what do containers actually mean for software development? There are many different pieces involved to put a successful containerized application together. SD Times caught up with Liz Rice, technology evangelist for container security specialist Aqua Security, to talk about a very important piece: Namespaces. Rice will be speaking at this week’s DockerCon about namespaces, and what they can do for containers.
Containers can touch everything in the software life cycle, from the development process through continuous delivery approaches, orchestration, security, and site reliability — so the process of adopting containers can seem overwhelming at first. But you don’t necessarily have to do everything all at once!
Software and data risks are always present, but how security is managed and threats are resolved makes all the difference.
To run Docker containers in production, you need to design a Docker container architecture that best meets your needs.
