At the same time, Snyk Open Source, a platform for remediating open source vulnerabilities, has been extended to provide native integration with Atlassian BitBucket and AWS CodePipeline platforms for driving DevOps workflows. Snyk has also tightened integrations with platforms from DigitalOcean and HashiCorp.
Snyk also added support for the Elixir programming language and package managers Yarn 2 and Poetry alongside integration with a C++ scanning tool from FossilID, a provider of a software composition analysis (SCA) tool for open source code that Snyk acquired earlier this year.
The Snyk Container platform is now integrated with the open source Trivy container scanning tools and with Snyk’s vulnerability database in addition to adding support for container registries such as Quay, GitHub Container Registry, GitLab, Google Artifact Registry and Harbor.
The Snyk infrastructure-as-code platform now also makes it possible to detect configuration issues in Kubernetes manifests in Terraform code in a way that is compatible with cloud platforms from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Snyk also is adding support for version 3 of OpenAPI, which the company reports is three times faster than the previous version. That API is also the foundation for Snyk Apps that the company will continue to roll out.
Finally, Snyk launched both a new free developer security education program, dubbed Snyk Learn, through which developers can attain and measure their level of DevSecOps expertise and Snyk Impact, an effort to foster collaboration among developers involving a wide range of socio-economic issues.
Company president Guy Podjamy said as DevsecOps continues to evolve, the primary focus remains on developers and DevOps teams. However, as an issue, DevSecOps is also becoming more important at both the C-level within organizations as well as individual security operations teams. As such, and in the wake of recent high-profile security breaches, the sense of urgency surrounding DevSecOps is now a lot higher. The fundamental challenge organizations are trying to address is finding a way to improve overall application security without slowing down the pace at which applications are built, noted Podjamy.
Snyk itself revealed it has secured an additional $530 million round of funding to address those issues. The company has now raised a total of $775 million to date with a valuation of $8.5 billion. Snyk also revealed it has increased annual recurring revenue (ARR) by 154% year-over-year from a customer base that now spans more than 1,200 organizations, including Asurion, Google, Intuit, MongoDB, New Relic, Revolut and Salesforce. Snyk customers and users collectively have run more than 300 million tests in the last 12 months to fix more than 30 million vulnerabilities in a 90-day period of time, the company claims.
It may be a while before most organizations have embedded security tools within every DevOps workflow. However, given the resources being poured into DevSecOps, it may be more a question when DevSecOps will be finally achieved rather than if.
