Anchore Solutions

Container Security solutions for Analytics, Compliance and Governance on-premise and in the cloud.

 What Anchore Delivers


Anchore delivers container security solutions for developers, operations, and security teams to deliver insight and control over the contents, security and compliance of containers from the start of development all the way to production. By allowing the creation of policies for security and compliance that are evaluated by Anchore at each stage of the build pipeline, Anchore ensures that only images containers that adhere to an organization’s policies are deployed.

Anchore Open Source

The Anchore open source project allows developers to perform detailed analysis on their container images, run queries, produce reports and define policies that can be used in CI/CD pipelines. Developers can extend the tool to add new plugins that add new queries, new image analysis, and new policies.

Anchore Premium

Anchore premium builds on top of the open source engine to provide the features required by Enterprise IT including expanded set of a analysis modules, policies and additional data feeds from the Anchore Cloud along with integration with Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment platforms.

Anchore Navigator

The Anchore Navigator delivers a free service for discovering and analyzing images on public container registries such as DockerHub. This SaaS service regularly polls public container registries and performs analysis on hundreds of public images – both official and non-official.

Users can perform a deep inspection of the image to see all the operating system packages, Node.JS modules, RubyGEMs, and any other file in the image, as well as review policy compliance of the image using the default Anchore policy is based on CVEs, Dockerfile contents and Package Manifest.

Anchore Navigator Premium

The Navigator Premium solution combines the powerful analysis and flexibility of the on-premise engine with the rich visualization of the Navigator. The Anchore engine is deployed on-premise or in the public cloud and performs analysis and policy evaluation on container images within the CI/CD pipeline or an organization’s private registry.

The contained images can be inspected using the Navigator and detailed policies can be defined that specify rules to govern vulnerabilities, package whitelists & blacklists, config file contents, presence of credentials in image, manifest changes, exposed ports or any user defined checks. Whitelists can be created to define exceptions to a policy (i.e. to suppress a specific CVE that is not exploitable in a given application) and synchronized from the Navigator to the on-premise analysis engine. The Navigator can provide pro-active notifications to deliver alerts if a newly issued security vulnerability affects any of an organization’s images.
