JFrog introduced Project Pyrsia, an open-source software community initiative that utilizes blockchain technology to secure software packages (A.K.A Binaries) from vulnerabilities and malicious code.
CollabNet VersionOne, XebiaLabs, and Arxan Technologies announced their combination and strategic transformation to Digital.ai, a new software company that brings together leaders in business agility, software delivery, and application security into one integrated, intelligent value stream platform.
Backed by TPG Capital, Digital.ai is on a mission to revolutionize how enterprises create, measure, deliver, secure, and continuously improve digital products that provide value, fuel revenue growth, and enable innovation in today’s rapidly changing world.
Digital.ai enables Global 5000 enterprises to realize the benefits of their digital transformation initiatives and deliver secure digital products that increase customer satisfaction and engagement. The Digital.ai Value Stream Platform seamlessly integrates all the disparate tools and processes across value streams, uses data and AI/ML to create connective tissue between them, and provides enterprises with the real-time, contextual insights they need to drive and sustain their digital transformation and produce great business outcomes. By streamlining processes across teams and providing continuous feedback loops throughout the development lifecycle, organizations can focus on what matters most to drive efficiencies, reduce costs, and create meaningful value for customers.
“In these challenging times, your digital presence is your business. Digital.ai enables enterprises to focus on business outcomes instead of outputs, unifying value creation, delivery, and protection practices to drive efficiencies and create engaging, secure digital experiences that customers value and trust,” said Ashok Reddy, CEO of Digital.ai. “Now more than ever, it is critical that organizations leverage the power of business agility to optimize processes and make decisions rooted in customer centricity. Doing so will result in higher quality, more secure products that are delivered faster and drive stronger customer and employee engagement.”
As organizations race to compete in today’s fast-moving markets, they must often prioritize speed over process and security, leaving applications vulnerable to attack. Arxan Technologies, a provider of application protection and the newest addition to Digital.ai, embeds application protection and real-time threat analytics into the Digital.ai platform so organizations no longer have to choose between innovation, performance, and security. By integrating security from the beginning of the development process, enterprises can drive cross-team alignment and eliminate unnecessary churn, ultimately increasing their speed to market.
“Digital.ai is bringing together leaders in their fields – from Agile business planning, to delivery, to application security – to create an integrated, end-to-end software platform that enables large enterprises to create, adapt, and excel in today’s digital markets,” said Nehal Raj and Art Heidrich of TPG Capital. “The company is introducing a new level of connectivity, visibility, and security into the software development lifecycle, and we are excited to see the impact that Digital.ai will have on Global 5000 businesses and their digital transformations. We look forward to continuing to work with management to support and build this differentiated platform.”
Digital.ai serves an established global customer base that includes leaders in automotive, banking and finance, digital media, gaming, insurance, medical devices, and more. Customers such as ABN AMRO Bank, KeyBank, KLM/Air France, Siemens, and Toyota are already realizing significant improvements in their software delivery value stream using the Digital.ai management and delivery platform.
Digital.ai has acquired Arxan from TA Associates. A second press release with further details on the addition of Arxan to the Digital.ai platform is expected on April 16, 2020. Terms of the combination are not being disclosed.
