Snyk, a security platform for developers, recently announced the general availability of its cloud security tunnel, Snyk Cloud, and enhancements to its platform. Extending support for Software Bill of Materials (SBOM), the enhancements include new reporting capabilities and self-service resources.
Snyk Cloud was first announced last July with limited availability. Using Snyk Cloud, developers can identify cloud security issues early on when designing cloud configurations. Using the Unified Policy Engine, developers can apply the same security rules to infrastructure as code (IaC) files and runtime resources in the cloud. Snyk Cloud can also scan third-party code, containers, and dependencies. In a centralized user interface, there are real-time insights from the organization’s cloud.
“We created the industry-leading developer security platform to help companies embrace the business-critical transformation of DevSecOps and reap its many benefits. We are committed to continuously improving and evolving the platform to ensure that developers, security engineers and cloud teams can collaborate effectively to both enhance security and increase the speed of innovation.”
Manoj Nair, chief product officer at Snyk, said
In terms of deploying Snyk products and configuring them, Snyk announced new self-service resources. These resources include self-learning courses and a central knowledge resource center. For those who prefer live expert knowledge, starter sessions and office hours are available for all new and existing users. Snyk also offers two professional service offerings, Snyk Accelerate and Snyk Premium.
