Secure from the start

Docker Desktop helps you quickly and safely evaluate software so you can start secure and push with confidence. Catch issues before you start developing by generating a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM), view vulnerability data by image layer, and get actionable remediation insights for your images. Learn more about end-to-end vulnerability analysis and how to shift security left in your app delivery pipeline.

Image Access Management

Stay more secure by managing which container images on Docker Hub developers can access, and gain more control by configuring organizations to only allow access to Docker Official Images and Docker Verified Publishers. Available with Docker Business.

Build Kubernetes-ready applications on your desktop

Docker Desktop is an application for macOS, Linux, and Windows machines for quickly and securely building and sharing containerized applications and microservices.

Docker Desktop includes an embedded Kubernetes setup for app development, and it allows you to use certified images, templates, and your choice of languages and tools. Development workflows leverage Docker Hub to extend your development environment to a secure repository for rapid auto-building, continuous integration, and secure collaboration.

Considering alternatives?

Developers love using Docker Desktop because it is easy to use, accelerates productivity, and eliminates the toil of setting up complex environments for building modern applications.

And while Docker Engine is sometimes viewed as a drop-in DIY (do-it-yourself) alternative for Docker Desktop, going it alone might not be as simple – or economical – as it seems.
