Scope of the Report

Containers provide a logical packaging mechanism where applications can be abstracted from the environment in which they actually running which allows container-based applications to be deployed easily and consistently, regardless of whether the target environment is a private data center, public cloud, or even a developer’s personal laptop. Containers are popular because they make it easy to build, package, and promote an application or service, and all its dependencies, throughout its entire lifecycle and across different environments and deployment targets.

Container security is the protection of the integrity of these containers, that includes everything from the applications they hold to the infrastructure they rely on. Container security needs to be integrated and continuous in order to provide a clean separation of concerns, as developers focus on their application logic and dependencies, while IT operations teams can focus on deployment and management without bothering with application details such as specific software versions and configurations specific to the app.

Key Market Trends

IT & ITes Sector is Gaining Traction Due to Emergence of Container Orchestration and Deployment

  • Deep Security for containers provides modern threat defense techniques that provide exceptional protection which scans container images in the software-build pipeline as well as integrates security that can be automated to fit the existing DevOps processes of the ITes thereby ensuring to meet deadlines and delivering applications fast while protecting them.
  • As organizations are shifting to the cloud, the ITes processes have become more innovative and agile once they develop & migrate apps to the cloud platform. Digital transformation is fueling continuous integration & delivery of containers, microservices, APIs and serverless are part of the overall process.
  • The container security platform provides full visibility into container activity, enabling organizations to detect and prevent suspicious activities and attacks, providing transparent, automated security, thereby helping enforce policy and simplifying regulatory compliance.
