Products and Services

The StackRox Container Security Platform connects DevOps and security teams. The 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. StackRox pulls together data to build a list of risky assets, stack ranked by priority. They tap into 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 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 incidents.
