Products and Services

The StackRox Container Security Platform helps bridge the gap between DevOps and security teams. Their software identifies and visualizes all container assets, giving a complete picture of the environment. It maps containers from services to applications, providing context of assets as well. StackRox pulls together the widest set of data to build a list of the riskiest assets, stack ranked by priority. They tap into far more than vulnerabilities, capturing info such as the business value of the application, how old images are and the last time they were scanned, how the orchestrator is configured, and whether containers are running in dev vs. prod. Companies can immediately zero in on the most critical assets to update in order to improve their security posture. The StackRox software stitches together categories of events to alert companies to attacks. The continuous machine learning improves the efficacy of detection, focusing a company’s team on the incidents that matter.
