Developers and engineering teams are under increasing pressure to release higher quality software faster. Continuous testing has proven to be central to these efforts as it helps eliminate bottlenecks and ensures that automated testing is a constant throughout the development process, not an exercise relegated to the "last mile." The value of automated testing is more evident than ever before, with nearly half the respondents reporting that management is fully committed to automated testing and with plans to increase spending, according to the recent Sauce Labs Testing Trends for 2018 report ...
Tufin announced its latest product offering, Tufin Orca, a cloud-based solution that enables users to extend Tufin's policy-based approach to secure containers and microservices.
Tufin Orca is available through an early access program that is now open. The solution integrates with DevOps teams' CI/CD tools to scan for threats, secure containers, and comply with regulations.
In order to secure the environment, DevOps teams want to know and control external access to vulnerable containers and limit the impact of a breach. Tufin Orca identifies and protects vulnerable containers that are externally accessible.
"A typical Kubernetes cluster may have dozens, sometimes hundreds of instances, which are increasingly susceptible to cyberattacks. At scale it becomes impossible to identify vulnerabilities and protect against breaches without automation," said Reuven Harrison, CTO at Tufin. "To achieve continuous security, DevOps teams can now integrate Tufin Orca with their CI/CD tools and Kubernetes runtime to protect microservices no matter where they're deployed – on-premises, private or public cloud."
At runtime Tufin Orca provides visibility into all microservice connections, monitors risk and takes policy-based action to shield applications.
Tufin Orca is now available through the early-access program, which includes free access, unlimited use of Tufin Orca, and dedicated support.
Tufin Orca will be generally available in Q3 2018.
