Flexera continues to innovate to help customers solve critical challenges. Our latest release will include visibility for software running in containers.
Customers have told us:
Moving micro-services architecture is leading to an increase use of containers
Gaining visibility into and understanding the software running in containers will be a game changer
They will use licensed software (Oracle, MySQL, etc.) on containers if they can track the licenses
Flexera is now positioned to help customers solve these common business problems.

Image and container discovery
Event based individual container scan
How does it work:
