ManageEngine, the enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation, announced the integration between Endpoint Central, its flagship unified endpoint management solution, and Check Point's Harmony Mobile, a leading mobile threat defense solution, to help IT security teams automate the remediation of mobile threats.
Quali announced availability of the Jenkins pipeline plug-in to speed up application release automation.
"Quali's Cloud Sandbox Software is a great step forward to making DevOps truly effective because it gives tools like Jenkins the ability to deploy full-stack production-like environments on-demand," said Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Jenkins founder and CTO at CloudBees. "This makes it possible for DevOps teams to improve the speed of testing and release automation."
"Jenkins is an incredible tool for streamlining the application build, test, and release process, but without a sandboxing tool in place you can only go so far," said Joan Wrabetz, CTO of Quali. "Today's applications, especially those developed for the enterprise, need to be developed and tested in sandbox environments that can truly replicate production-like deployments with full support for networking, cloud, virtualization, app deployment, and configuration of physical resources like network gear, storage, and even IoT."
Quali's Jenkins Plugin allows DevOps teams to control CloudShell Sandboxes directly from Jenkins' pipeline. It associates Jenkins jobs with Quali Sandboxes, giving them the power to run jobs on full-stack, sandbox environments rather than just simple nodes. Quali's Jenkins Pipeline plugin allows users to associate sandbox environments for each stage of a CD pipeline, enabling the automated setup and teardown of production-like environments throughout the application release process. In the new plugin it's possible to use simple pipeline steps in your pipeline-script / JenkinsFile like "StartSandbox" and "StopSandbox" to control CloudShell Sandboxes.
The Jenkins plugin is open-sourced and is immediately available on Quali's Developer Community.
