Remote.It, a SaaS (News - Alert)-based network management service, announced the release of a new feature, Docker Network Jumpbox, that provides Remote.It zero trust access to containers - significantly enhancing security and minimizing risks.

The Docker Network Jumpbox enables developers to easily share their Docker services with others, all while maintaining a zero trust container access environment. This latest move promotes collaboration and streamlines the development process. It also helps IT and DevOps teams to simplify their container management tasks, leading to increased efficiency and productivity.

"Zero trust security has become increasingly important in today's digital landscape where cyber threats are becoming more sophisticated and frequent," said Ryo Koyama, CEO and cofounder of Remote.It. "Our new features with Docker leverage zero trust container access and provide a higher level of security and compliance for organizations of all sizes."

The Remote.It Docker desktop extension for Mac and Windows is readily available on the Docker Marketplace.

A zero trust approach in network security is crucial for businesses to safeguard their data and mitigate cyber risks. Remote.It users can utilize Docker Network Jumpbox to save time and improve security. Developers can not only seamlessly deploy containers but also provision container services, easily share Docker services with Remote.It Organization features, and access local Docker services on their host devices without exposing ports to the Docker network.

For IT/DevOps teams seeking simplified container management, Docker Network Jumpbox also automates the provisioning of services so there is no need for manual configurations - saving time, reducing errors, and increasing security.

"Docker is always looking for ways to fill and improve the developer experience gap while keeping developer ergonomics in mind," said Webb Stevens, General Manager Docker Desktop. "Networking configurations can be a major pain point for many organizations so we are happy to welcome to the Docker Extension marketplace, which will offer a direct means of deploying Zero Trust Network Access at deployment for millions of Docker developers."
