What you get with Anchore

Anchore provides DevSecOps integrations for your existing toolchain. Whether looking for known vulnerabilities, secrets, malware, or insecure configurations, Anchore Enterprise searches continuously for issues and enables security teams to triage, remediate, and report more efficiently.

Continuous vulnerability scanning

Automate vulnerability scans at each step in the development lifecycle, including source code repositories, CI/CD pipelines, container registries, and Kubernetes platforms. Identify vulnerabilities, malware, secrets, and security risks.

Frictionless developer experience

100% API coverage and fully-documented APIs enable developers to work seamlessly in the tools they already use. Automate scanning in source code repos, CI/CD pipelines or container registries through native integrations. Streamline remediation of issues with notifications through GitHub, JIRA, Slack, and more.

Track SBOM drift

Detect SBOM drift in the build process to uncover unexpected dependencies, malicious efforts to infiltrate builds, and inadvertent errors. Alert security staff to changes in SBOMs so they can be assessed for risks or malicious activity.

Fewer false positives

Optimize development velocity with an unparalleled signal-to-noise ratio. Get fewer false positives with vulnerability results that are pinpointed to a specific distro. Use flexible policies to prioritize based on severity or availability of a fix. Provide “corrections” and “hints” that improve results going forward. Add vulnerabilities to allowlists to prevent ongoing alerts.

Shift security left

Find and fix vulnerabilities earlier to keep development moving. Start automated scanning in the development and build phases to uncover new dependencies and vulnerabilities. Continue scanning against container registries and pre-deployment to ensure components remain secure.

Why Anchore

Led by a team with extensive experience in automation and cloud computing, Anchore was founded to enable efficient security workflows at scale. Rather than require changes to tools or processes, Anchore Enterprise integrates with your existing environment to check the security posture of your applications and surface the most critical issues at every stage of development. 

Anchore Enterprise enables a “shift left” approach which ensures issues are identified as early as possible and flagged with the appropriate teams. As software moves from CI/CD to Runtime, Anchore Enterprise catalogs the components at every stage and ensures that insecure software is never put into production. 

DevSecOps FAQs

Have another question?

Chevron icon What is the difference between DevOps and DevSecOps? Can Anchore be used for both?

DevOps emerged as a change in culture and practices that sought to optimize how developers and operations teams worked together. In order to avoid the traditional silos that each team worked in where software was written without any operational considerations, DevOps involved changing both tools and processes to ensure that dev and ops team worked together early on, with a particular focus on automation of the release process.. The success of the movement allowed companies to ship software faster and more reliably.

Initially, security was not a goal of the DevOps movement, but once good practices were established it was clear that security could also be brought into the fold and use the same automated systems. DevSecOps then emerged as a term. 

Currently, the two terms are often used interchangeably reflecting that fact that security is now assumed to be a given in modern software development practices.

Chevron icon What is automation in DevSecOps and why does it matter?

Automation in DevSecOps is useful and important. While in the traditional DevOps program there will be a heavy focus on Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment, in the DevSecOps space there is room for automating security. Technologies now exist to detect certain security errors. For example, open source dependencies can now be scanned for security vulnerabilities.

Chevron icon What are the benefits of DevSecOps?

There are three primary benefits of DevSecOps:

  •  Save cost and time. With DevSecOps you incorporate automated security gates into existing software development workflows which provides a savings of cost and time.
  • Better collaboration among teams. By bringing security into the conversation as early as possible, and promoting collaboration with development and operations teams, developers now see security as an enabler, not an impediment.
  • Faster response to changing customer needs. Being able to rapidly respond to changes in the marketplace or in developing and shipping software products to end-users is critical. DevSecOps enables this and helps teams adapt when new changes are published.
