Qualys, a pioneer and provider of disruptive cloud-based IT, security and compliance solutions, has announced it has worked with Google Cloud to provide out-of-the-box support for Google Cloud Artifact Registry for its container security solution.
The new integration allows security and DevOps teams to set up automated security scans of container artifacts in Artifact Registry, now generally available. Qualys Container Security scanning will assess all images for software inventory, vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, and provide a unified view across multiple Google Cloud regions. Customers can then leverage the Qualys security posture API of these container images for automation of security workflows like container deployments in Google Cloud Build or integrating with DevOps ticketing systems.
“Google Cloud’s Artifact Registry provides a convenient fully-managed service that allows customers to have a central repository for all their software artifacts,” said Philippe Courtot, Chairman and CEO, Qualys. “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.”
“It’s important that DevOps and IT teams are able to deliver software quickly and securely and we’re excited that Qualys is integrating its container security capabilities with Google Cloud’s Artifact Registry,” said Juan Sebastian Oviedo, Product Manager, Google Cloud.
Built on the Qualys Cloud Platform, Qualys Container Security discovers, tracks and secures containers from build to runtime. Container Security continuously flags and responds to security and compliance issues in containers across your hybrid IT environment.Click below to share this article
