Are you attending DockerCon 2017 in Austin, TX next month? If so, I invite you to add Aqua to your MUST SEE list of vendors
A server security hole in a relatively new virtualization platform category called container software was detected and fixed before the damage was widespread. The vulnerability, known in the IT security world as CVE-2016-9962, could have hobbled many supply chain networks around the world. Except that it didn’t.
Among the many different use-cases for Vault is within container deployments. Aqua Security announced an integration with Vault in February 2017 for container deployments.
Aqua won the Silver award for Startup of the Year by Information Security Products Guide. Cyber Defense Magazine named the Aqua Container Security Platform the Most Innovative Application Security Solution for 2017. SDx Central, the premier media outlet for news, analysis and research on software-defined infrastructure named Aqua on of “9 Security Startups Worth Watching in 2017,” the second honor it has bestowed on the company in the past nine months.
Formerly known as Scalock, container security company Aqua supports and secures containers from Docker, CoreOS, Microsoft, and VMware. Aqua’s Container Security Platform is able to track a container’s status throughout its lifecycle.
The open-source Vault project is another effort that provides secrets management and is currently also integrated with the Aqua Container Security Platform 2.0 update that was released on Feb. 2.
