VMware announced the general availability of VMware vSphere 7, the biggest evolution of vSphere in over a decade.
ShiftLeft announced a partnership and deep integration with CircleCI that enables organizations to insert security directly into developer pull requests from code repositories.
ShiftLeft Inspect is the first static application security testing (SAST) vendor to partner with CircleCI to provide these capabilities.
The partnership and integration enables CircleCI users to run ShiftLeft Inspect on CircleCI builds and pull requests from any code repository integrated with CircleCI. Pull requests and builds can then automatically be escalated, alerted upon or failed based on security criteria. Hence, CircleCI users can mirror their DevOps initiatives with DevSecOps goals.
As part of the partnership, ShiftLeft Inspect will be free to CircleCI users for an unlimited number of applications and frameworks, totaling no more than 200,000 lines of code and 300 scans per year. The free license will include one programming language and enable CircleCI users to scan up to two applications concurrently.
"Today’s developers are building and delivering software at incredibly high velocity, which is required to meet the demands of organizations and customers,” said Tom Trahan, VP of Business Development, CircleCI. “Historically, security has been viewed as a step that slows down that velocity. CircleCI is excited to partner with ShiftLeft to enable developers to insert security further left in the CI/CD pipeline, for accurate vulnerability scanning."
“When it comes to source code analysis, most of what’s being delivered today in application security is automation for automation’s sake. The tools on the market today aren’t actually enabling organizations to make the right decisions automatically,” said Alok Shukla, VP of Product Management, ShiftLeft. “With ShiftLeft and CircleCI, organizations and developers are able to make accurate, fast decisions when it comes to their release quality, further left in the development lifecycle than ever before. By inserting security as far left as the pull requests, we’re delivering industry-first SAST capabilities that will help our customers harness the benefits modern CI/CD pipelines without leaving security behind.”
The integration is immediately available to ShiftLeft customers and CircleCI users.
