Adam Miller Joins Ansible Core Dev Team
Docker Security with Anchore
Fun fact: Some of the Ansible co-founders are part of the Anchore founding team :-)
Anchore is a free open-source tool for security scanning Docker images so that critical vulnerabilities don't get introduced into your production systems.
- Anchore Cloud — web app to discover and scan Docker Hub / ECR images for vulnerabilities
- Anchore Open Source Engine — service for security scanning images on-prem with CI/CD integrations
If you provide DevOps services to clients, you should join me for an Anchore webinar next week on October 19th at 1pm EST.
