Last month we announced support for Windows containers and automating image scanning as a step in Microsoft VSTS. I'm happy to announce that Aqua supports the new (yet to be officially released) Azure Container Registry, or ACR.
ACR joins other Docker v1/v2 that Aqua supports.. This means that Azure customers can more easily secure their container development pipeline.
How does scanning in ACR work? It's very simple. Let's start by creating our registry in Azure:
Then, in the Aqua Command Center, connect to the registry:
Now we can scan images in our new Azure registry:
Of course, just as with scanning any registry, we enable you to set runtime policies for images based on the scan results, and the whole process can be driven from your CI/CD tool, including Microsoft VSTS.
Aqua Security enables enterprises to secure their container-based and cloud-native applications from development to production, accelerating container adoption and bridging the gap between DevOps and IT security.
Aqua’s Container Security Platform provides full visibility into container activity, allowing organizations to detect and prevent suspicious activity and attacks, providing transparent, automated security while helping to enforce policy and simplify regulatory compliance.
