Snyk Container


Snyk Container

Dev-first container security made simple

Container and Kubernetes security that helps developers and DevOps find and fix vulnerabilities throughout the SDLC — before workloads hit production.

Find and automatically fix container and workload vulns

Snyk’s developer-first approach has removed the barrier to entry for container security — helping teams find and fix tens of millions of vulnerabilities.

Automate remediation

Get developer-ready base image recommendations and automatically upgrade to resolve vulnerabilities.

Monitor with context

Continuously monitor for vulnerabilities and prioritize their remediation based on context and exploitability.

Secure dependencies

Find and fix vulnerabilities in open source dependencies used in base images and Dockerfile commands.

Let developers quickly fix container vulnerabilities before they hit prod


Remediation guidance

Snyk Container lets developers know the risks in each image, and provides one-click upgrades and alternative image recommendations.

Prioritize to reduce noise

Priority scoring lets you focus attention on the most critical issues based on risk signals like exploit maturity and insecure workload configs.

Applications & containers in one view

Scan your containers and the open source dependencies in those containers all at once from a unified developer security platform.

Designed for developers

Snyk Container gets developers straight to the vulnerable Dockerfile commands and dependencies — no security expertise required.

Find vulnerabilities in containers and K8s workloads throughout the SDLC

Integrated IDE checks

Detect vulnerabilities in base image dependencies, Dockerfile commands, and  Kubernetes workloads while coding to fix issues early and save development time.

Native Git scanning and monitoring

Scan PRs before merging and test projects directly from their repository. Enable daily monitoring to find and fix vulnerabilities faster.

Secure from pipeline to production

Automatically scan for vulnerabilities within the CI/CD during build and test your running environments to keep new vulnerabilities out. 

Integrated with the tools you use

Snyk Container supports your favorite ecosystems and seamlessly integrates with your tools, pipelines, and workflows.

Monitor continuously to protect after deployment


Automatically scan for new vulns

Monitor your images for newly discovered vulnerabilities and base image updates and receive alerts via Slack, Jira, email, or custom integration.

Monitor containers running in K8s

Detect newly deployed and updated workloads in Kubernetes clusters and uncover potentially unsafe settings in Kubernetes workloads.

Reporting and prioritization

Understand the security posture of your apps in one place and monitor issues with an auditable inventory of dependencies with context-aware prioritization.

“I was really happy to have containers scanning before runtime production. People weren’t paying attention to the vulnerabilities in containers, so it has been eye opening for the organization. It truly increases awareness of those vulnerabilities and enables more automation. It’s more in line with that quality improvement mindset that the engineering teams have in their CI/CD practices.”
