The program provides solutions to help organizations develop secure and compliant cloud-native applications
Today Anchore, Inc., the leading experts in continuous security and compliance for containers, announced the launch of a new partner program to speed customers’ digital transformation and reduce risks by automating security and compliance checks earlier in the development lifecycle.
The program launches worldwide with existing partners such as GitHub, GitLab, Atlassian, CloudBees, Red Hat, Microsoft, Carahsoft, and many others. The program will bring together Anchore and partners to help companies and government agencies build DevSecOps toolchains and processes to meet their business and mission objectives.
“As software delivery increasingly moves to containers and cloud-native technologies, organizations must fundamentally change their approach to security and compliance. They can’t wait to fix security and compliance until the end of the software development lifecycle, but instead must shift left by continually checking the software applications and remediating issues earlier in the process,” remarked Saïd Ziouani, Anchore CEO and Cofounder. “With this new partner program, we’re formalizing our strategic relationships to create the flexible and integrated DevSecOps solutions that enterprises and government agencies have been requesting.”

Anchore’s new partner program has three categories:
- Solution Providers, such as systems integrators, managed services providers, and security/compliance firms who provide clients with a complete end-to-end solution for continuous security and compliance across the software development lifecycle through to production environments.
- Channel Partners, such as value added resellers (VARs), who interact with clients and Anchore to scope deployment and enable the procurement of technologies needed for a complete continuous security and compliance solution.
- Technology Partners who integrate with Anchore to create compelling DevSecOps technologies to fuel innovative solutions for customers.

“As GitHub continues to focus on building the best experience for developers, it’s critical to embed security into their workflow. With the Anchore GitHub Action, developers are able to surface container security findings directly through the GitHub code scanning UI. This empowers teams to ship more secure code, faster, and all within the native GitHub user experience,” said John Leon, VP of Business Development, GitHub.
