The NeuVector solution deploys in minutes and immediately discovers running services and containers. A visual map with application behavior is generated to make it easier to monitor and secure containers. The security policy is automatically created based on built-in application templates and adapts immediately as containers scale up or down. Running containers are also scanned for vulnerabilities to catch inadvertent or malicious images from compromising security.
