Container Security Survey
We surveyed 512 IT professionals who either already use containers or are planning to use them in the near future.
The findings highlight differences in security focus and ownership based on respondents’ roles, experience with containers, and maturity of deployment. Key findings include:
- 80% see room for improvement or dedicated security measures/processes for handling security in the container era
- 53% overall rank vulnerabilities in images and code as a key focus area. For those running multiple container apps in production, managing ‘secrets’ takes the lead. Respondents in security roles showed an increased focus on network segmentation for containers.
- DevOps are responsible today for security in enterprises with multiple container apps in production, but future ownership is seen as shifting to DevSecOps or Security teams.
