Docker and Snyk Extend Partnership to Docker Official and Certified Images

John Kreisa

Oct 21 2020

Today we are pleased to announce that Docker and Snyk have extended our existing partnership to bring vulnerability scanning to Docker Official and certified images. As the exclusive scanning partner for these two image categories, Snyk will work with Docker to provide developers with insights into our most popular images. It builds on our previous announcement earlier this year where Snyk scanning was integrated into the Docker Desktop and Docker Hub. This means that developers can now incorporate vulnerability assessment along each step of the container development and deployment process.

Docker Official images represent approximately 25% of all of the pull activity on Docker Hub. Docker Official images are used extensively by millions of developers and developer world wide teams to build and run tens of millions of containerized applications. By integrating vulnerability scanning from Snyk users are now able to get more visibility into the images and have a higher level of confidence that their applications are secure and ready for production.

Docker Official images that have been scanned by Snyk will be available early next year.

You can read more about it from Snyk here and you can catch Docker CEO Scott Johnson and Snyk CEO Peter McKay discuss the partnership during the Snykcon user conference keynote Thursday morning October 22 at 8:30 AM Pacific. You can register for Snykcon at http://bit.ly/SnykConDocker
