A new press release reports, “Chef, the leader in Continuous Automation, today announced InSpec 2.0, a compliance automation solution that accelerates DevSecOps by allowing cross-functional application, infrastructure and security teams to assess and remediate compliance issues from development through the entire software delivery lifecycle. InSpec 2.0 provides cloud configuration testing (including Microsoft Azure and AWS), more than 30 new conformance capabilities (including Docker, IIS, NGINX and PostgreSQL), enhanced integration with third-party tools and improved ease-of-use and customizability.”
The release goes on, “InSpec is the first step in Chef’s ‘Detect, Correct, Automate’ approach to cloud migration and continuous automation. It helps organizations maintain an up-to-date view of compliance status in production, detect security issues long before they reach production and reduce risk while delivering applications faster. An open-source framework for describing security and compliance rules that can be shared between software engineers, operations and security engineers, InSpec enables compliance at velocity at all stages of the software delivery process, from the developer’s workstation all the way to production, with no performance impact or side-effects. InSpec’s readability means it is easy to use and understand for all team members, including those whose roles involve minimal coding.”
