Runners are containerized versions of either
- security scanning tools (see What is a Scenario? )
- or DevOps tools (see What is an Integration? )
Runners wrap the security scanning tool’s functionality within a Docker container. Runners specific for security scanning tools will either retrieve past scan results or orchestrate a scan. There are also runners for DevOps tools like GitHub and Bitbucket that wrap a subset of API commands to retrieve a list of repositories among other selected functionality.
Some runners can run onprem - meaning that as a ZeroNorth customer you retrieve that runner image with a
command and run that runner in your own environment. Running a runner in your own environment makes sense if your security scanning tools or DevOps tools are not SaaS based and your tools sit behind a firewall.
