Qualys launches Container Security solution for AWS Marketplace

Qualys has launched a new solution for container security. This is Container Security for the AWS Marketplace. This gives users insight into container applications that run on AWS and enables them to realise the security for these applications.

Qualys Container Security can be used by DevOps and SecOps teams to monitor and secure container-native apps on AWS without interrupting existing Continuous Integration and Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines. The content of a container image can be assessed for vulnerability. In addition, the teams can determine which images will be implemented, gain insight into the activity of runtime applications and automatically enforce normal application behaviour.

It is also possible for users to make a dynamic analysis of all activities within the applications. Philippe Courtot, president and CEO at Qualys, indicates that containers have triggered a new speed and scale of business innovation. However, they also change the requirements for securing and monitoring applications. “Qualys Container Security enables companies to build visibility and security into their container-native applications running on AWS.”


The Container Security is part of the company’s Cloud Platform. This should give customers a unified view of IT, security and compliance between on-premise assets, endpoints, clouds, containers and web apps. The cost and complexity of managing multiple security vendors must therefore be reduced.

Today, the platform offers eighteen fully integrated, centrally managed and automatically updated security and compliance solutions. The platform must provide customers with scalability, visibility, accuracy and various capabilities to combat cyber attacks by automatically collecting and analyzing security and compliance data from IT resources. It must also be possible to build in security for digital transformation.
