This post shows examples of how GitLab can help increase the security of such applications and their hosting environment. We focus on web applications, but most of the security features described in this post apply to any containerized apps.
The number of web applications hosted in containers grows every day, but data from our 2020 Global DevSecOps Survey showed a majority of companies don't have a container security strategy in place. This post shows examples of how GitLab can help increase the security of such applications and their hosting environment. We focus on web applications, but most of the security features described in this post apply to any containerized apps.
