Snyk, a leading provider of security for native cloud applications, today announced the next phase of its Docker partnership, in which Snyk is be named as the exclusive provider of security insights for Docker Official Images and other future content certification programs.

Official Docker images are very popular with the Docker developer community, accounting for 25% of all images downloaded from Docker Hub. Instead of building their container components from scratch, developers regularly select the 166 available official Docker images as the base layers that make up their containers. Adding Snyk security information to the official images enables the vulnerability risk assessment as a step in the selection process for official and certified images.

By combining vulnerability insights from Official Images and the Snyk-Scan recently integrated into Docker Desktop and Docker Hub, developers can now incorporate vulnerability assessment into every step of the container development and deployment process. By integrating vulnerability information directly into developer platforms, security tests are shifted to the left and the process of delivering secure applications is optimized.

In a joint discussion at the SnykCon 2020 virtual conference, Peter McKay, CEO of Snyk, and Scott Johnston, CEO of Docker, presented this next phase of the partnership.
