Trend Micro and Snyk announces its first and only SecOps solution to defeat open source code bugs

Trend Micro and Snyk announces its first and only SecOps solution to defeat open source code bugs 

Trend Micro Incorporated recently launched a collaboration with Snyk. This is the first of its kind SaaS solution designed to give continuous insight into open source code bugs to further strengthen risk management and help in data-driven decisions.

The Trend Micro Cloud One – Open Source Security by Snyk is the newest Cloud One service being offered and the first partner addition to the platform. This is made available through the channel itself and the AWS marketplace. 

Part of its special features include visibility into open source software vulnerabilities that can be utilized by security operation teams. Because of the flexibility and quality that products like these offer, open source code components have been exploding. Snyk said that today, over 80 per cent of applications are open source.

In their Market Guide for Software Composition Analysis, Gartner stated that “Open-source software is used in nearly all organizations. This introduces risks from readily exploitable vulnerabilities; an expanded attack surface through which malware and malicious code can gain access, compromising proprietary code and infrastructure; and legal and intellectual property exposures.”

In the open source space, Snyk has recorded a growth of over 2.5 times in the past three years. This data made the organization realize that there is a need to deliver security further into the DevOps pipeline. There are still various challenges between SecOps and DevOps like different toolsets and hindrances in proper communication.

This new innovation from Trend Micro and Snyk was created to solve these challenges between the two teams, making tasks quicker to fulfill and protect the stack.

“Together Snyk and Trend Micro are investing in the future of the cybersecurity industry, where security and development teams effectively work together to make their organizations safer,” said Geva Solomonovich, Global Alliances CTO for Snyk. “Adding Snyk’s developer-first security technology to Trend Micro’s Cloud One allows more customers to tackle open source risk on a single platform, minimizing the need to manage multiple vendors and tools.  We look forward to our continued collaboration with Trend Micro to foster more innovative, effective ways to solve key security concerns for our customers.”

“With this one solution, we’re able to solve several problems and use technology to bridge internal gaps,” said Kevin Simzer, chief operating officer for Trend Micro. “This offering can save over 650 hours of development time per application through increased automation, helps to manage risk and liability with license requirements, and gives security teams visibility into a part of our functional code base that has not been accessible before.”
