Security Starts at the Developer Level
Although dedicated security teams are an essential part of cloud operations, developers are the first line of defense in preventing vulnerabilities in code and dependencies. You can deliver more robust application security at scale if you can bring developers deeper into the security process. However, to do this successfully you need to give them a process that is frictionless, intuitive, and works within the tools they already use.
That’s why we’re excited to announce our new strategic partnership with Snyk!
The Power of Snyk
Snyk is a security platform focused on helping developers to build secure cloud applications from the ground up. The platform works by proactively scanning and finding vulnerabilities in open source dependencies, application code, containers, and infrastructure code. That means that throughout the whole development process, devs can identify and fix potential security issues early and quickly.
Additionally, the quality of the Snyk vulnerability database is one of the highest available thanks to a dedicated research team, contributions from the developer community, and use of machine learning. The combined effort of all these components results in the capability to discover vulnerabilities an average of 25 days faster than what’s in the biggest publicly available database.
