Puppet launched its Scaling DevOps Service, which was established to advise businesses on how to organize and scale their DevOps practices.
The service includes DevOps coaching, evolutionary assessment to see what stage teams are at, toil reduction for freeing up bandwidth across teams, and automation for the DevOps toolchain.
“Structural change is hard, and it’s not something that can be learned from a book. We believe in helping organizations discover the right answers through open dialogue and framework, putting their situations and context at the center of their transformation, whilst helping them plan IT investments appropriately. So far, we’ve been extremely successful and saved thousands of hours of toil and millions of dollars for some of our early customers,” said Nigel Kersten, the field CTO of Puppet.
ShiftLeft Illuminate released
The new solution leverages ShiftLeft technology to identify insider attacks and to offer remediation advice.
“Identifying such ‘insider attacks’ goes beyond taint-based vulnerability analysis. ShiftLeft’s Illuminate helps customers insert insider attack detection in the software supply chain to establish non-repudiation of the software shipped at every stage,” said Manish Gupta, the CEO of ShiftLeft.
Illuminate performs an architecture review to find the areas that are most prone to an insider attack and then creates a Code Property Graph (CPG) fingerprint of the relevant codebase. It then identifies sources, sinks, and transforms to reduce exposure.
Sentry’s latest funding round
Sentry raised $60 million in its latest Series D funding round.
Sentry said it will use the funding to scale its product innovation, global teams, and its ecosystem of developer communities and partners.
The company released its Performance Monitoring Solution last July to address the growing need for code observability.
