DivvyCloud by Rapid7 Announces New Infrastructure as Code Security Capability
May 12, 2020

DivvyCloud by Rapid7 released a new core capability, Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Security.

This capability integrates cloud security into the DevOps process--improving developer productivity and preventing cloud security issues during the build process. DivvyCloud now delivers seamless, full-lifecycle cloud security to customers, ensuring that they can accelerate innovation using cloud services without the loss of control.

This addition bolsters DivvyCloud’s position as a cloud security posture management product and amplifies its existing capabilities, which include unified visibility and monitoring, automation and real-time remediation, threat protection, and identity and access management (IAM) governance.

IaC Security empowers security teams to apply DivvyCloud’s security and compliance policies during the CI/CD pipeline, allowing the evaluation of cloud security and compliance risk of Infrastructure as Code templates before they are built. By shifting cloud security left, security professionals can prevent misconfigurations and policy violations from occurring and deliver better experiences to developers. The result: improved cloud security and improved developer productivity.

Key features of this capability include:

- Consistent, unified policy enforcement across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

- Holistic protection by combining the risk of the analyzed IaC template with the known risk of the cloud environments it will connect to if built.

- Integration with any CI/CD pipeline tools, including Jenkins, CircleCI, Travis CI, Azure Pipelines, etc.

- Extension of existing DivvyCloud policies and scope these by application.

- Options to warn or fail a build by policy based on violation criticality.

“As cloud adoption has grown and changed, so has the role of the security professional, particularly their interactions with their DevOps counterparts,” said Brian Johnson, co-founder and SVP, DivvyCloud by Rapid7. “Enterprises need security throughout the development lifecycle, not just at runtime. With IaC Security, security teams can arm developers with IaC templates that will guide the development of secure applications from the very start.”

“What’s even more remarkable is that It eliminates the perceived friction that ensues when security teams catch problems at runtime,” continued Johnson. With this preventive approach to security, developers can get the guidance they need to remain secure and compliant at the right time and in the right place.”

IaC Security is available to all existing and future DivvyCloud customers at no additional cost.
