Containers are an appealing technology, but they’re not without risk. That's why container security best practices are critical.
Containers have become a common alternative to virtual machines for hosting applications in a virtual environment, and their portability and efficiency make them an attractive option for application deployment. However, containerization (also referred to as container-based virtualization) presents several security challenges.
In addition to traditional security best practices that remain constant as technology evolves, container administrators and development-security-operations (DevSecOps) teams should understand containerization, which introduces new concerns, so that they can strengthen container security, manage vulnerabilities, and improve security posture overall.
