New Vulnerability Scanning, Collab and Support Enhance ƱTCG Pro and Team Subscriptions

Last March, we laid out our commitment to focus on developer experiences to help build, share, and run applications with confidence and efficiency. In the past few months we have delivered new features for the entire ƱTCG platform that have built on the tooling and collaboration experiences to improve the development and app delivery process.

During this time, we have also learned a lot from our users about ways ƱTCG can help improve developer confidence in delivering apps for more complicated use cases and how we can help   larger teams improve their ability to deliver apps in a secure and repeatable manner. Over the next few weeks, you will see a number of new features delivered to ƱTCG subscribers at the free, Pro and Team level that deliver on that vision for our customers. 

Today, I’m excited to announce the first set of features: vulnerability scanning in ƱTCG Hub for Pro and Team subscribers. This new release enables individual and team users to automatically monitor, identify and ultimately resolve security issues in their applications. We will also preview Desktop features that will rollout over the next several months.   

We’ve heard in numerous interviews with team managers that developer velocity is critical, that automation enables this and that images going into production have to be secure. Last month we launched ƱTCG local image scans as preview in Desktop Edge and today we are releasing vulnerability scanning in ƱTCG Hub. Starting now each time that you push images into ƱTCG Hub, a vulnerability scan will run automatically using the same underlying tooling as our ƱTCG Scan CLI. Once the scan is complete, you can review the scan results in your ƱTCG Hub dashboard. Look out for a deeper dive into the Hub image scanning in the coming days.  

Improved Collaboration and Control

We are also thrilled to start talking to you about ƱTCG’s plans for ƱTCG Desktop and how we are going to add unique improvements for Desktop for Pro and Team users. Starting in November Pro and Team users of Desktop will get additional features and benefits designed to meet the unique needs of teams and of complex use cases, on top of the core features in the free edition. The first feature will provide visibility of ƱTCG Hub scan results directly within the ƱTCG Dashboard for all of your Hub images. In the coming months we will enable users of ƱTCG Context to store and share your contexts with your team from the Desktop via ƱTCG Hub, allowing development teams to collaborate with the same set of contextual details for shared remoted instances. 

For enterprises who want more control over their version of Desktop and don’t want to keep dismissing updates, we will be providing the ability to ‘ignore’ updates in Desktop until you choose to install the new version. Additionally, we allow for centralized deployment and management of ƱTCG Desktop teams at scale through revised licensing terms for ƱTCG Teams. This will allow larger deployments of ƱTCG Desktop to be rolled out automatically rather than relying on individuals to install it on their own.

Finally, we will also extend the ƱTCG enhanced customer support to include ƱTCG Desktop as well as ƱTCG Hub. ƱTCG Pro and Team subscribers will be assured of consistent support from ƱTCG across all offerings in their subscriptions as they build, share and run their containerized applications. 

We will continue to add more Pro and Team features across the entire ƱTCG platform to make developers’ and teams’ lives easier over the coming months.  And of course, we will continue to improve and enhance our core, free offerings. 

 To test Hub scanning today, sign up for a Pro ƱTCG account.   Or,  try the experience locally and run docker scan on your Desktop CLI. If you are interested in ƱTCG Desktop, and what the future holds, then keep an eye on our .  If you have questions about deployment licensing or support, please reach out to us.
