Best Container Security Software

Container security software is used to secure multiple components of containerized applications or files, along with their infrastructure and connected networks. Containers are a popular way to format units of software during application development, most commonly used by DevOps teams. After development, they are orchestrated, deployed, and networked. Security is essential during all stages of container usage.

Container security software is used to manage access, test security, and protect cloud computing infrastructure running containerized applications. Management features will help administrators determine who can access containerized data or integrate with containerized applications. Testing capabilities will assist in developing security policies, discover zero-day vulnerabilities, and simulate attacks from common threat sources.

Some application security software include the ability to defend and test the security of containerized applications. But container-specific security tools provide increased security, monitoring, and networking, for microservices and containerized applications.

To qualify for inclusion in the Database Security category, a product must:

  • Integrate security with DevOps tools
  • Monitor and secure container networks or pipelines
  • Enforce access and security policies
  • Provide runtime protection capabilities
