Cloud-based IT, security, and compliance solutions provider Qualys announced that it has worked with Google Cloud to provide out-of-the-box support for Google Cloud Artifact Registry for its container security solution. With this integration, security and DevOps teams can set up automated security scans of container artifacts in Artifact Registry.
A convenient fully-managed service
Qualys Container Security scanning provides a unified view across multiple Google Cloud regions by assessing all images for software inventory, vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. Customers can then leverage the Qualys security posture API of these container images for automation of security workflows.
Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys, said,
“Google Cloud’s Artifact Registry provides a convenient fully-managed service that allows customers to have a central repository for all their software artifacts. Now, with our new integration, customers can quickly adopt this artifact management offering from Google Cloud in their DevOps pipeline with seamless container security built-in from Qualys.”
Qualys Container Security is container-ready security and compliance platform for global hybrid IT environments built on the Qualys Cloud Platform. With the addition of runtime protection, Qualys Container Security’s capabilities extended to include full, granular visibility into running containers and enforce policies that govern containers’ behavior.
