The following products are supported on the host that is hosting the containers. In other words, these products do not restrict containers from being initiated and do not impede container functionality on the host. But, these products are currently not supported inside containers. In other words, these products do not support being installed inside containers, do not secure containers, and do not provide container visibility.
