Incorporated

(TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), the leader in cloud
security, today
announced plans for a new, co-developed solution with Snyk, the leader in
developer-first open source security. The joint solution will help security
teams manage the risk of open source vulnerabilities from the moment open
source code is introduced without interrupting the software delivery process.
This marks the expansion of a strategic partnership that has already helped
countless organizations enhance DevOps security without impacting product
roadmaps.

 

"We
know that vulnerabilities in open source software, which is increasingly used
by all development teams, have increased 2.5x in the past three years," said
Geva Solomonovich, Global Alliances CTO. "This partnership is
ground-breaking because for the first time it is giving the security operations
team visibility into Open Source, which is one of the fundamental building
blocks of cloud native applications, and its risk. Through this collaboration
we will be helping bridge the technology, process and organizational gap
between security operations and devops teams."1

 

According to Gartner, "Open-source libraries can carry
significant vulnerabilities and the fact that developers may not even know a
component is embedded within a library exposes them to unseen vulnerabilities."2

 

"DevOps sits at the beating heart of
innovation-first enterprises and no one knows these teams like Snyk, especially
when it comes to preventing open source vulnerability threats," said Kevin
Simzer, chief operating officer for Trend Micro. "What we are putting into play
is effectively a virtual open source cybersecurity expert to those teams
running our Cloud One platform. Together we can solve security issues before
they occur, with complete coverage from code creation to runtime and across any
type of developer environment."

 

The latest capabilities, delivered by
combining the strengths of both companies, enables teams to find
vulnerabilities in open source code automatically and immediately. It offers
significant benefits for security and development teams, including helping to
support compliance with ISO 27001, SOC 2 and other key frameworks and
standards.

 

The joint solution will help create
fundamental mind shifts in collaboration, driving closer alignment between
security and developer teams. It will be available as part of the Trend Micro
Cloud One platform, for additional details visit: www.trendmicro.com/cloudone.
