For years, our team struggled with minimizing and triaging CVEs in one of our most critical customer-facing images. By switching to Chainguard Images, we almost immediately achieved zero-known CVEs in our customer image for the first time in two years, which significantly helped free up engineering  and technical success resources to focus on customer innovation and removed the daily headache of vulnerability maintenance associated with that image.”
