Snyk Unveils Snyk Cloud, the Industry's First Developer-Centric Cloud Security Solution

Snyk
Snyk, the leader in developer security, today unveiled Snyk Cloud, announcing the launch of the industry's first comprehensive Cloud Security Solution designed by and for developers.

This latest development was made possible by the acquisition of Fugue earlier this year. Thoughtfully designed with global DevSecOps teams in mind, Snyk’s Cloud Security solution unites and extends existing products Snyk Infrastructure as Code and Snyk Container with Fugue’s leading cloud security posture management (CSPM) capabilities. These elements are now powerfully combined to realize a fully featured cloud security solution that allows today’s modern developers to continue their rapid pace of innovation securely.

The Snyk Cloud product extends the company’s existing Developer Security Platform in a significant way, allowing more companies to embrace DevSecOps and spark further effective collaboration between their developer, operations, security and compliance teams. Instead of grappling to patch together multiple, incompatible cloud and application security solutions, ultimately leading to a fragmented view of application security in the cloud, global developers now have the ability to take full ownership of their infrastructure. At the same time, their security counterparts can define and operate a consistent cloud security posture across the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC).

With the digital era’s ever rising need for innovation speed, siloed application and cloud security tools that focus on detecting issues after deployment are too slow and risky, creating growing tension between developer and security teams. With the addition of Snyk Cloud, Snyk customers will now be the first to benefit from a unified platform and policy engine that equips them to create secure deployments via an unmatched feedback loop – from code to cloud and back to code – securing their cloud before deployment and maintaining its secure integrity while running as well as then assessing and prioritizing the precise places to provide fixes back in the code. In fact, over the past year, Snyk customers have reported that they improve their security risk posture by more than 60% by reducing the time it takes to find and fix vulnerabilities.

“Snyk’s developer-first approach disrupted the application security industry and we’re now aiming to apply many of those lessons learned to the fastest growing segment of cybersecurity today: cloud security, Predicted to be worth $77.5 billion by 20261, this is an area ripe for change. Today’s news represents another important milestone for the developer security movement, and we look forward to the industry’s response to our vision of uniting AppSec and CloudSec teams to secure today’s apps more efficiently.”

Peter McKay, CEO, Snyk

“Our global customers have witnessed firsthand how previous cybersecurity tenets have evolved profoundly, with cloud infrastructure now changing just as fast as the apps themselves. They’re eager for one comprehensive solution that provides a truly complete cloud picture, driving DevSecOps by enhancing developer productivity securely,” said Adi Sharabani, CTO, Snyk. “We’re incredibly proud to reveal this industry gamechanger, Snyk Cloud, the first developer security product designed for the cloud era in order to address every important stage of a modern app’s life today from development through to production.”

Now Powered by Snyk: The Cloud Security Podcast

In timing with AWS re:Inforce, Snyk has introduced two exciting new cloud security hires, Ashish Rajan and Shilpi Bhattacharjee, founders of the Cloud Security Podcast, which is now officially powered by Snyk. In their new roles, Ashish will be Snyk’s first Cloud Security Advocate, while Shilpi will continue to serve as Lead Program Manager for the Cloud Security Podcast. As with the Secure Developer Podcast and DevSecCon, Snyk is committed to continuing to build these global communities that foster education, thought leadership and promote secure development.

Global CIO Report Reveals the Challenges Organizations Face as Cloud Complexity Rises

Dynatrace | September 17, 2022

Software intelligence company Dynatrace announced today the results of an independent global survey of 1,303 CIOs and senior cloud and IT operations managers in large organizations. The findings showed that as the move toward cloud-native architectures accelerates, the data generated by such environments outstrips current solutions’ ability to produce meaningful analytics. CIOs noted that their teams rely on multiple, disparate monitoring and data analytics solutions to maintain observability and security, making it challenging to extract answers quickly and drive digital transformation forward. The complimentary 2022 Global CIO Report, “How to Tame the Data Explosion and Overcome the Complexity of the Cloud,” is available here. The research reveals the following: 71% of CIOs say the explosion of data produced by cloud-native technology stacks is beyond human ability to manage. Over three quarters (77%) of CIOs say their IT environment changes once every minute or less. CIOs say their teams use an average of 10 monitoring tools across their technology stacks, but they have observability across just 9% of their environment. 59% of CIOs say without a more automated approach to IT operations, their teams could soon become overloaded by the increasing complexity of their technology stack. 64% of CIOs say it has become harder to attract and retain enough skilled IT ops and DevOps professionals to manage and maintain their cloud-native stack. “Multicloud and cloud-native architectures are critical to helping organizations achieve their digital transformation goals, While organizations benefit from the flexibility and scale that these technologies bring, the explosion of observability and security data they produce is increasingly hard to manage and analyze. Existing tools and there can be dozens of them keep data in silos, making it difficult and expensive to unlock insights when organizations need them. As a result, they struggle to achieve the highest standards for security and performance across their digital services.” Bernd Greifeneder, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Dynatrace Additional findings from the survey include: 45% of CIOs say it’s too costly to manage the large volume of observability and security data using existing analytics solutions, so they only keep what is most critical. On average, organizations capture only 10% of observability data for querying and analytics. Nearly two-thirds (63%) of CIOs say the costs and delays caused by reindexing and rehydration make it challenging to unlock value from the increasing amount of data they capture. 43% of CIOs say current approaches to observability data ingestion and storage won’t support their future needs. 93% of CIOs say AIOps and automation are increasingly vital to alleviating the shortage of skilled IT, development, and security professionals and reducing the risk of teams becoming burned out by the complexity of modern cloud and development environments. “Amidst a sea of data, individual data points are far more valuable when they retain context, which is why teams invest so much effort trying to correlate different streams,” continued Greifeneder. “But today’s manual approaches are too reactive and slow, and they miss the most important insights. Teams urgently need a new approach to observability and security data analytics and management. AI and automation should underpin this approach, and it should be capable of unifying all data and keeping its relationships and dependencies intact. This will enable organizations to maximize the value of their data and people, reducing the time spent on mundane manual tasks and enabling faster, more secure innovation.” The report is based on a global survey of 1,303 CIOs and senior IT practitioners involved in cloud and IT operations management in large enterprises with more than 1,000 employees, conducted by Coleman Parkes and commissioned by Dynatrace. The sample included 200 respondents in the U.S., 100 in Latin America, 603 in Europe, 150 in the Middle East, and 250 in Asia Pacific. About Dynatrace Dynatrace exists to make the world’s software work perfectly. Our unified software intelligence platform combines broad and deep observability and continuous runtime application security with the most advanced AIOps to provide answers and intelligent automation from data at an enormous scale. This enables innovators to modernize and automate cloud operations, deliver software faster and more securely, and ensure flawless digital experiences. That’s why the world’s largest organizations trust the Dynatrace® platform to accelerate digital transformation.
