JFrog and Docker Unveil Integrated Solution for Increasing Container Security & Developer Productivity

JFrog Unveils New DevSecOps Contextual Analysis Capabilities

JFrog Ltd., the Liquid Software company and creators of the JFrog DevOps Platform, introduced a new Docker Desktop Extension for JFrog Xray that allows organizations to automatically scan Docker Containers for vulnerabilities and violations early in the development process. Available through JFrog’s free tier subscription, the new Xray integration with Docker Desktop helps increase productivity, reduce risk, and speed time-to-deployment.

“We’re thrilled to extend our partnership and integrations with Docker to now include JFrog Xray for vulnerability scanning, forensics, and compliance capabilities,” said Stephen Chin, Vice President of Developer Relations, JFrog. “At a time when software supply chain attacks are on the rise, we’re glad we can empower developers to have greater insight into any exposures, early, so they can engage the necessary teams for timely response and remediation – reducing downtime and avoiding loss of trust from end customers.”

Research by IDC indicates there will be 500 million new applications developed in the next few years – more than all applications that have been developed in the past 40 years of IT1. At the same time, the recent surge in software supply chain attacks makes securing those applications paramount – meaning developers must integrate security checks at every stage of the software development lifecycle.

The JFrog integration with Docker Desktop Extensions allows developers to:

  • Monitor and audit the security of software encapsulated in Docker containers
  • Identify vulnerable artifacts inside Docker containers prior to deployment and once they are in production
  • Conduct enhanced forensic investigations that provide a complete view of software security incidents
  • Get up and running quickly with an easy connection from the JFrog Platform to the Docker Desktop application.
