There once was a time in software development where developers could design, build and then think about their software's security. However in today's highly connected, API-driven application environment, this approach is simply too risky as it exposes the software to vulnerabilities ...
Tripwire announced the debut of Tripwire for DevOps.
After pre-releasing DevOps capabilities in an early access program earlier this year, Tripwire has launched Tripwire for DevOps as a generally available software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution. Tripwire for DevOps integrates security assessments into the DevOps life cycle and toolchain, providing visibility into the security state of underlying application infrastructure throughout the pipeline.
Complementing application and source code analysis tools, Tripwire for DevOps assesses container images and container registries for vulnerabilities, with additional features, such as the ability to assess configurations for compliance with security policies, in near-term release. It integrates with the CI/CD pipeline to ensure components meet security standards as they move through build and deploy DevOps stages.
"As organizations move their application and service deployment to a DevOps model, it's vital that they integrate security into the actual process," said Tim Erlin, VP of Product Management and Strategy at Tripwire. "In addition to securing custom code, businesses need to ensure that the application infrastructure and inherited code remain secure throughout the life cycle. We're excited to introduce a solution that embodies what's been referred to as 'DevSecOps,' true integration of security into the DevOps workflow."
Tripwire for DevOps fully automates the assessment of container images in the CI/CD pipeline and can dynamically test live instances of application containers in an isolated, cloud-based sandbox. It can be used to establish quality gates at each stage to fail builds that don't meet defined security standards. It can also be used to simply monitor and assess repositories, providing visibility of potential risk without interfering with the roll-out process.
Simplifying deployment and set-up, Tripwire for DevOps is a fully self-contained SaaS solution that features:
- Integration with popular DevOps CI/CD build tools, including Jenkins, & TeamCity, with additional tools coming soon.
- Compatibility with all Docker v2 repositories for container assessment.
- A complete REST API and command line interface for DevOps engineers to write custom integrations.
