Snyk Container

Empowers developers to easily find and fix vulnerabilities in containers and Kubernetes applications

Find vulnerabilities in containers and Kubernetes workloads throughout the SDLC

Coding & CLI

Shift security left and test images as they are created

Code management

Link container images to their Dockerfiles and Kubernetes configurations


Integrate security directly into your pipeline. Use policies to break builds based on the severity of vulnerabilities discovered


Scan images in your registries and continue monitoring for newly disclosed vulnerabilities


Monitor running workloads and detect configuration issues


Track trends and vulnerability fix rates across teams and organizations

Fix issues quickly to minimize exposure and risk

Base Image remediation

Scale the security process by quickly eliminating many of vulnerabilities by upgrading to the most secure base image or by rebuilding the image when outdated.

In-line fixes

Get straight to the line in your Dockerfile that’s introducing vulnerabilities and easily trace dependencies to discover which of your tools is the causing issues.

Application and container vulnerabilities together

You may not always have access to the original source code that runs in your containers, but vulnerabilities in your code dependencies are still important. Snyk can detect and monitor open source dependencies for popular languages as part of the container scan.

Quickly identify the vulnerabilities posing the greatest risk

Easily see which issues are the highest priority to fix. Snyk’s exploit maturity for Linux vulnerabilities highlights issues with known exploits in the wild. And we correlate Kubernetes workload configuration with vulnerabilities to indicate areas of higher risk.

Monitor continuously to protect after deployment

Image monitoring

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

Kubernetes application configuration

Detect newly deployed and updated workloads in Kubernetes clusters to ensure images are scanned for vulnerabilities. Uncover potentially unsafe settings in Kubernetes workloads that could expose your cluster to additional attacks and privilege escalations.

Kubernetes code scanning


Detect security issues in your Kubernetes YAML, JSON and Helm code early in the development lifecycle to correct configuration issues before you deploy to your clusters.
