Software Supply Chain Security by Anchore for Enterprises, Software Vendors, and the Private Sector - vertical

Trusted by leading agencies.

A more secure process for public sector agencies.

Validate the security of direct and transitive open source dependencies and third-party components.
Reduce time spent on rework by uncovering all your dependencies and security issues early.
Lower remediation costs by continuously scanning for vulnerabilities, malware, cryptominers, and secrets in your CI/CD pipeline.
Meet the high compliance standards of DoD, DISA STIG, FedRAMP, NIST and more with out-of-the-box, automated policy packs.
Prevent insecure apps from being deployed into production with policy controls and gates that prevent deployment of critical issues.
Re-analyze SBOMs for released software to identify the impact of new vulnerabilities that arise post-deployment.

The Anchore Difference

Continuous compliance.

Automate compliance checks with pre-built policy packs for United States government standards, including DoD, DISA STIG, FedRAMP, NIST, and CIS Benchmarks.

Designed for U.S. Federal environments.

Deploy a policy-based container security solution that’s designed for air-gapped environments and meets U.S. Federal security requirements including DoD IL-6 and FIPS.

Used by the DoD.

Anchore is named as a required scanning tool in the DoD Container Hardening Guide and Container Image Creation and Deployment Guide.

Collaboration with federal agencies.

Partner with Anchore experts who help support DevSecOps initiatives at the Department of Defense, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Space Force, U.S. Navy, DISA, and GSA.

Key capabilities.

Federal Policy Packs

Use pre-built policy packs for United States government standards, including DoD, DISA STIG, FedRAMP, NIST, and CIS Benchmarks.

Streamline STIG Checks

Automate STIG checks against container environments to ease compliance efforts.

Air-Gapped Deployments

Deploy Anchore on-premise with no internet connection in order to run in DoD IL-6 environments.

End-to-End SBOM Management

Automatically generate comprehensive SBOMs at each step in the development lifecycle and store them in a repository for use in monitoring for new vulnerabilities and risks — even post-deployment.

Open Source Dependency Tracking

Use SBOMs to scan throughout the development cycle for both direct and transitive dependencies to pinpoint relevant open source vulnerabilities and to enforce policy rules.

Vulnerability Scanning & False Positive Management

Scan images for malicious code and secrets in development environments, CI/CD pipelines, container registries, and runtime environments while reducing false positives and false negatives.

SBOM Drift Detection

Detect SBOM drift in the build process by setting policy rules that alert when components are added, changed, or removed to quickly identify new vulnerabilities, developer errors, and malicious efforts to infiltrate builds.

Application-Level View of Risk

Tag and group all artifacts associated with an application, release, or service so you can report on vulnerabilities at the application level and monitor each application release for new risks — including zero-day vulnerabilities.

Flexible Policies for Compliance

Enforce compliance with internal standards or with such directives as DISA STIG, NIST, FedRAMP, CIS Benchmarks, and more using pre-built policy packs or custom policy rules.

Notifications & Alerts

Use email, Slack, Jira, or GitHub to notify developers and security teams of policy violations, secrets, malware, and more so they can take corrective action.

Remediation Recommendations

Reduce time spent fixing vulnerabilities with remediation recommendations and automated workflows to resolve the issue.

Continuous Visibility & Monitoring

Manage Kubernetes clusters to identify containers that are unscanned or have new vulnerabilities.

Security Reports & Audits

See the big picture with flexible reporting and easy-to-use dashboards for security teams or consume data through an API.


Leverage fully supported integrations with the tools you already use, including major CI/CD tools, container registries, and container platforms.

Enhanced Vulnerability Data

Access enhanced vulnerability data with a custom feed that curates data from multiple sources and enables optimized vulnerability matching.
