Press Release – CHICAGO June 13th 2023
Open-source code repositories have become integral to developers, enabling them to work faster and more flexibly with the added benefit of collaborating with other developers. While these platforms encourage agility, they can also create security concerns.
oak9, the developer-first cloud native security leader, has added a GitLab integration for its platform. Support enables customers who use GitLab repositories to seamlessly integrate oak9 into their pipeline.
“By supporting GitLab, oak9 makes it easier for developers to commit secure and compliant code every time, from the start.”
With this integration, oak9 can detect and alert developers of security gaps as early as possible in the software development lifecycle, from the design phase through post-deployment. It allows teams to remediate security issues found by oak9 without ever having to leave GitLab.
“Our vision has always been about being the cloud native security leader, and this integration is a significant step in realizing that goal,” said Om Vyas, CEO and Co-Founder of oak9. “oak9 is the only cloud security vendor that offers a BYO language, open-source Security as Code framework and software development kit, multi-IaC support, and an architectural approach to cloud security. Adding support for GitLab and its more than 30 million registered users means oak9 now supports all major code repos and CI/CD tools.”
The GitLab integration comes amid a growing need for cloud native security solutions that can keep up with the pace of modern development. Developers using tools like GitLab face challenges like false positives, managing static policies, tool fatigue, and post-deployment fixes. By supporting GitLab, oak9 makes it easier for developers to commit secure and compliant code every time, from the start.
oak9 looks at infrastructure in the context of the entire cloud native application. It validates that the designed architecture is secure and ensures security is consistent across all deployments.
