Today, security and technology provider Tenable Network Security announced that it has acquired container security provider, FlawCheck. Tenable says that the acquisition makes it the first vulnerability management company to provide security for Docker containers and support modern DevOps processes run by organizations.
Renaud Deraison, CTO, Tenable Network Security said :
Information technology is undergoing a profound change due to DevOps, containers and the mass migration of operations and infrastructure to the cloud.
Tenable understands that next-generation technologies bring with them a range of new security challenges, which is why we are accelerating our investment in this area.
FlawCheck helps organizations scan container images for vulnerabilities, malware and other risks. The product provides vulnerability and malware detection, along with continuous monitoring, for Docker containers, integrating with the systems that build container images to ensure every container reaching production is secure and compliant with enterprise policy.
Anthony Bettini, Founder of FlawCheck said :
Containers are changing the software development and deployment process, but many organizations don’t have a way to properly maintain and secure them.
FlawCheck scans containers early in the software development lifecycle to make it easier and safer to deploy them in production, and then continuously monitors them for vulnerabilities and malware.
By seamlessly incorporating FlawCheck into their development and deployment processes, enterprises gain visibility into the hidden security risks present in containers, enabling fast remediation without slowing innovation cycles.
