Red Hat announced Red Hat OpenShift 4.7, the latest version of the company’s enterprise Kubernetes platform.
Dynatrace announced enhancements to its Application Security Module, which the company released in December 2020.
These include extending Dynatrace’s AI-powered risk assessment for applications running on Node.js, the runtime environment underpinning the cloud-native applications of many of the world’s leading brands. In addition, Dynatrace is extending automatic software vulnerability detection in Kubernetes environments from workloads to the platform itself, and linking vulnerabilities discovered by Dynatrace to individual containers to streamline assessment and increase the speed of remediation.
Further expanding Dynatrace’s vulnerability to detection across cloud-native architectures provides DevSecOps teams with more precise, real-time insights into the source, nature, and severity of software vulnerabilities in both their production and pre-production applications. This allows them to make more informed decisions in real-time, mitigate risks with greater speed and efficiency, and accelerate digital transformation with increased confidence.
As enterprises move to dynamic cloud-native architectures to accelerate their digital transformation, their security exposure and the overhead of mitigating risks is becoming a more prevalent concern. To address this challenge, the Dynatrace Application Security Module provides real-time, continuous runtime application self-protection (RASP) capabilities for cloud-native applications in production and pre-production.
“Modern DevSecOps processes and constantly changing cloud-native architectures have broken traditional approaches to application security and put more responsibility on developers,” said Steve Tack, SVP of Product Management at Dynatrace. “With our launch last December, we extended our platform’s automation and intelligence to cloud application security. We are enabling DevOps teams to continue to innovate at a fast pace, while giving security teams confidence that new cloud-native applications, services, and innovations are vulnerability-free. By expanding coverage to the Kubernetes platform and Node.js, we are providing intelligent vulnerability detection to a broader set of modern cloud environments.”
These enhancements will be available within the next 90 days.
