"Video experiences have surged dramatically over the past year, and they have provided organizations with an important platform to engage with customers and employees across the world. We're excited to broaden our partnership with Oracle and provide even more advanced video capabilities to customers both through delivering our video solutions on OCI, and by infusing our video capabilities into Oracle products that customers know and love," said Ron Yekutiel, co-founder, chairman and CEO, Kaltura.

Through the expansion of our partnership with Oracle, we expect to jointly launch new innovative video products to enterprise, education and media customers. Additionally, the cost and performance benefits of OCI will help support our growing scale and velocity needs, as Oracle will help us mobilize a multi-year technical effort to accelerate our adoption of OCI."

Oracle has been a Kaltura customer since 2012. In 2019, Oracle and Kaltura announced an OEM partnership, which originally utilized Kaltura's video-on-demand services and is now being extended to leverage all Kaltura media services. With the expansion of the strategic partnership, Cloud customers will be able to manage their on-demand, live, and real-time video content in Oracle's universal content hub, and enrich that content with Kaltura's tools. Customers can easily deliver video across any channel from email and social media to their own website and blogs and obtain detailed engagement analytics related to viewership, drop-offs, interactions, and more.

"Video has vastly changed how we work from home, learn, consume entertainment, and engage with one another. We're excited to expand our longstanding and valued partnership with the Kaltura team to help them deliver higher performance, better security, improve operational efficiency and scale even faster on OCI. Oracle's commitment to powering the Kaltura Video Experience Cloud, coupled with a global go-to-market, underscores our mutual commitment to the future of video technology," said Dave Profozich, senior vice president, ISV Ecosystem, Oracle.

Additionally, Oracle and Kaltura will jointly market and sell all Kaltura products and solutions in an alliance that will accelerate Kaltura's global expansion and provides real-time access to data at scale.

Codenotary Cloud Delivers the First All-in-One Software Supply Chain Security and DevSecOps

Codenotary | March 16, 2022

Codenotary, leaders in software supply chain security, today announced new features in Codenotary Cloud that provide the first all-in-one, end-to-end software supply chain security and DevSecOps. This latest version includes Codenotary’s own vulnerability scanning, in addition to the ability to integrate with other vulnerability scanners, which means Codenotary Cloud now provides assurance of a fully-trusted, tamper-proof software supply chain – from checking for vulnerabilities to cryptographic verification and ensuring the provenance of software artifacts and then tracking those in inventory in a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM). In addition, further enhancements have been made to Codenotary Cloud capabilities including extending the existing trust/untrust functionality to now allow policy enforcement that provides full protection in DevOps deployments. Codenotary Cloud, first announced last month, reduces the cost to almost instantly identify and remove unwanted artifacts by up to 80% and delivers compliance with the U.S. Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity. Our cloud service delivers simplicity combined with the industry’s most sophisticated capabilities for assuring a secure software supply chain. It is immutable and tamper-proof providing users with full trust in the essential software they rely on to run their businesses. That is not trivial in today’s world where software supply chain attacks like log4j and SolarWinds have had far-reaching consequences.” Moshe Bar, co-founder and CEO, Codenotary. Codenotary Cloud provides an end-to-end trusted software supply chain with integrity and authenticity. It can be scaled to millions of integrity verifications per second and gives developers a way to attach a tamper-proof SBOM for development artifacts that include source code, builds, repositories, and more, plus Docker container images for their software and Kubernetes deployments. The SBOM can make those instantly visible to customers, auditors and compliance professionals. It is built without uploading any data to the service, instead notarizing these artifacts using tamper-proof cryptographic verification to uniquely identify development artifacts. Each artifact retains a cryptographically strong identity stored inside immudb the open source immutable database developed by Codenotary. With Codenotary Cloud it’s possible to maintain trust status at the level of each individual artifact at scale. Codenotary Cloud provides tools for notarization and verification of the software development lifecycle attesting to the provenance and safety of the code. Codenotary Cloud can be integrated with popular cloud-native continuous integration / continuous delivery (CI/CD) systems. The DevOps attestation service runs on any cloud or host as a managed service or customers can host themselves. Pricing starts at $5,500 for a workgroup of 10 developers. About Codenotary Codenotary brings easy to use trust and integrity into the software lifecycle by providing end-to-end cryptographically verifiable tracking and provenance for all artifacts, actions, and dependencies. Codenotary can be set up in minutes and can be fully integrated with modern CI/CD platforms. It is the only immutable and client-verifiable solution available that is capable of processing millions of transactions a second. With the Codenotary tamper-proof bill of materials, users can instantly identify untrusted components in their software builds.
