Aqua for VMware AppDefense: Unified Security for VMs and Containers

Secure applications across VMs and containers with Aqua and VMware AppDefense with single pane-of-glass visibility

Aqua has integrated with VMware AppDefense to provide a real-time stream of container asset deployments, alerts data, and audit events into VMware AppDefense. The joint solution enables security teams to gain centralized visibility and control over mixed VM-based and containerized application activity within the AppDefense console.


Enhanced visibility

Gain accurate inventory of containers, nodes, virtualized apps, and visibility into network traffic directly from AppDefense

Runtime protection

Enforce containers, users, and data centers least privileges in runtime, and rapidly identify irregularities and potential threats

Comprehensive audit trail

Provide VMWare AppDefense manager with enriched container-context alert data for quick remediation

Real-time Visibility & Control
Automatically discover containerized workloads, view real-time container vulnerability status, approved/unapproved containers, and policy violation alerts, directly within VMware AppDefense.
Zero-config runtime protection
Protect workloads with Aqua’s automated, machine-learned security profiles by whitelisting legitimate container behavior, to prevent zero-day attacks, and privileged user abuse.
Continuous Monitoring, Detection & Response
Automatically detect and respond to workloads’ anomalous activity (e.g. block suspicious executable or communication). Event data is sent to AppDefense for further investigation.
Audit & Compliance
Generate granular audit trails of all container activity, including scan events, access, and secrets activity. Event logs can be easily exported into analytics and SIEM solutions.
