TL;DR

Cycode extends its platform to scan Azure Container Registry images for secrets and vulnerabilities.

 

Securing Docker Images

Docker images have become the cornerstone of modern applications, allowing developers to quickly and easily deploy containers that can run anywhere. With the rise of containerized environments, organizations can deploy their applications faster and more efficiently than ever.

However, the use of Docker images also brings new security concerns. As more and more organizations adopt containers, the need for effective security solutions that can protect against vulnerabilities and secrets in Docker images has become increasingly critical.

Just like with open source software (OSS), using Docker images means organizations are unwittingly taking on an additional source of risk. While containers provide many benefits, they also expose organizations to new security threats that can compromise the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their data.

Azure Container Registry Integration

Following Cycode’s release a few weeks ago of our new secret scanning capabilities and our container scanning for vulnerabilities capabilities, we are proud to announce that Cycode has expanded the integration with the Azure products suite by adding a native integration to Azure Container Registry (ACR).

With the integration, organizations can now scan their Docker images for vulnerabilities and secrets in ACR, ensuring that their containers are secure and compliant. Cycode’s container scanning solution identifies vulnerabilities and secrets in Docker images. It provides a detailed report on the severity and impact of the issues found, as well as recommended remediation steps.

This integration with ACR is a testament to Cycode’s commitment to providing organizations with the tools they need to secure their cloud environments. With support for multiple Azure services and products, as well as support for Google Container Registry (GCR) and Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR), Cycode customers now enjoy a comprehensive security solution that covers all of their cloud infrastructure needs.

Cycode’s integration with Azure Container Registry is a major step forward in container security. Cycode helps organizations secure their Docker images and containers, protecting against security threats. With its container scanning and secret scanning capabilities, Cycode provides organizations with the tools they need to ensure the security of their containers, allowing them to focus on delivering innovative solutions to their customers. This integration complements existing integrations with Azure DevOps cloud, Azure DevOps Server, Azure Cloud, and more, providing Azure customers with an even more comprehensive security solution.

For example, consider organizations using Azure products on their SDLC, Azure DevOps as SCM (source control management), and ACR to store their Docker images. With the integration of Cycode with ACR, organizations can now scan their images for vulnerabilities and secrets before deploying them, ensuring the security of their containers from the start. This helps organizations avoid potential security incidents and maintain their data’s confidentiality, integrity, and availability. In addition, on top of the new capability of scanning the image(s), Cycode understands the connection between the code and the artifacts (like Docker images) from the code repository, as Cycode has the whole context of the entire SDLC. 

In conclusion, Cycode’s integration with ACR is a major milestone in the company’s efforts to enhance the security of containerized environments. With our container scanning and secret scanning capabilities, organizations can be confident that their containers are secure and compliant, freeing up time and resources to focus on delivering innovative solutions to their customers.
