A recent press release reports, “DivvyCloud by Rapid7, the leading cloud security platform, today 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.”
The release goes on, “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: (1) Consistent, unified policy enforcement across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. (2) 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. (3) Integration with any CI/CD pipeline tools, including Jenkins, CircleCI, Travis CI, Azure Pipelines, etc.”
