Continuous Security Assessment for the Docker Ecosystem

Cavirin is taking a leadership role securing the container lifecycle, including co-authoring Docker Security Benchmarks, OS hardening of containers as well as registry and Docker Hub image scanning.

Docker Security

Securing the Container Lifecycle from the Beginning

Scanning the container images for security is critical before they hit production, since container based applications are often built by composing with other images downloaded from registries, some even untrusted, that can potentially have serious vulnerabilities. We have automated container security to the level of easy integration into application development process and CI/CD pipeline.

If they are implementing containers either on-premise or as part of a cloud deployment, you need to ensure that their workloads are secure.  And, if you bring in images from a registry, you need to ensure that these are not corrupted.  We support both of these scenarios, de-risking their deployments.


Cavirin's automated image scanning looks at and assess all things within the actual Docker image, including security baselines and whether the system is patched, and can play an important role in the CI/CD pipeline.  This is critical, since about a third of all container images found in public or even private registries have vulnerabilities.


OS hardening of the full containerized infrastructure stack removes security holes and unnecessary/corrupt images to provide unsurpassed security in addition to improving container performance.


Cavirin was a key contributor of the CIS Docker 1.13 Benchmark and has embedded the core security guidelines into their platform along with other security and industry compliance frameworks (e.g HIPAA, PCI, SOC2 and NIST).


Join us on August 24th, as Cavirin experts, Anupam Sahai, Vice President Product Management and Ravi Rajamiyer, Vice President Engineering, provide insights into tools and techniques for securing and automatically monitoring container-based systems from the beginning of the design cycle—all the way through the rapid container churn.
Featuring Izak Mutlu, former CISO at Salesforce.
