Snyk: Enabling developers to build software securely

We take a look at how Snyk helps developers to build secure applications and equips security teams to meet the demands of the digital world

On a mission to make the digital world a safer place, Snyk enables companies all over the world to use its offerings to help their engineering teams develop faster, and more securely.

The company offers a developer-first approach, so organisations can secure critical components of their applications from code to cloud, leading to increased developer productivity, revenue growth, customer satisfaction, cost savings and an overall improved security posture.

“Snyk’s developer-first approach disrupted the application security industry and we’re now aiming to apply many of those lessons learned to the fastest growing segment of cybersecurity today: cloud security,” said Peter McKay, CEO, Snyk. 

Snyk’s Developer Security Platform automatically integrates with a developer’s workflow and is purpose-built for security teams to collaborate with their development teams. According to the company, it is used by 2,000+ customers worldwide today, including industry leaders such as Asurion, Google, Intuit, MongoDB, New Relic, Revolut and Salesforce.

A new cloud security solution 

Snyk has recently announced the launch of Snyk Cloud, a cloud security solution designed by and for developers. This latest development was made possible by the acquisition of Fugue earlier this year, according to the company. 

The Snyk Cloud product extends the company’s existing Developer Security Platform, allowing more companies to embrace DevSecOps and spark further effective collaboration between their developer, operations, security and compliance teams. 

“Our global customers have witnessed firsthand how previous cybersecurity tenets have evolved profoundly, with cloud infrastructure now changing just as fast as the apps themselves. They’re eager for one comprehensive solution that provides a truly complete cloud picture, driving DevSecOps by enhancing developer productivity securely. We’re incredibly proud to reveal this industry gamechanger, Snyk Cloud, the first developer security product designed for the cloud era in order to address every important stage of a modern app’s life today from development through to production,” said Adi Sharabani, CTO, Snyk.

With the addition of Snyk Cloud, Snyk customers will be able to benefit from a unified platform and policy engine that allows them to create secure deployments via a feedback loop – from code to cloud and back to code – securing their cloud before deployment and maintaining its security. 

Over the past year, Snyk customers have reported that they improve their security risk posture by more than 60% by reducing the time it takes to find and fix vulnerabilities.
