DevOps leader delivers scalable hybrid cloud security scanning for the enterprise
SUNNYVALE, California, Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — JFrog, the DevOps technology leader known for enabling liquid software via continuous update flows, is announcing that Xray, JFrog’s universal binary analysis tool, is outpacing the competition with massively-scalable enterprise security solutions in the cloud. Xray Cloud is available for customers on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and soon on Azure.
The industry-wide “shift left” in the DevOps process towards a security-emphasizing approach of “DevSecOps” requires a new set of tools. JFrog helps companies incorporate security awareness and implementation early in the development process. JFrog Xray universally performs recursive security scans and dependency analyses on all standard software package and container types, increasing development throughput for some of the world’s most innovative companies, including Slack, Workday and AT&T.
“As large enterprises continue to adopt DevSecOps practices, the number of delivery pipelines and software packages they need to secure is increasing at an exponential rate,” said Dror Bereznitsky, VP of Product Management for JFrog. “In visiting with these large customers regularly, we see that scalability is rapidly becoming the primary pain point, as they can have thousands of projects and container image footprints measured in the tens of terabytes. Xray is emerging as a solution uniquely able to support these growing workload volumes, while competitive tools that we see on site are not easily handling these increased demands.”
To manage their large software portfolios, many enterprises are moving to pure cloud or hybrid cloud models to scale their infrastructure more effectively. In support of these trends and now for the first time, JFrog Xray is available as a pure cloud subscription, making Xray the only cloud utility integrated with a universal artifact binary repository (JFrog Artifactory), creating a massively-scalable, comprehensive, end-to-end cloud DevSecOps solution. Xray’s extensive database of vulnerabilities is complemented by the ability to plug into other data sources, giving customers maximum flexibility and coverage.
“The ability to provide scalable security solutions in a hybrid cloud model has definitely become a requirement in the enterprise,” said Bereznitsky. “We’re proud that Xray is uniquely providing not only reliable scanning and compliance management, but also delivering these solutions at a massive scale across leading cloud providers to give customers maximum flexibility.”
The announcement of scalable hybrid cloud security solutions builds on JFrog’s ongoing recognition as a leading cloud company, with recent inclusion in the Forbes Cloud 100, being named as an IDC DevOps Acceleration Innovator, and honored as a 451 Research Firestarter.
