Aqua Security secures the supply chain with latest solution

Aqua Security, a pure-play cloud native security provider, is introducing an end-to-end software supply chain security solution, ensuring protection across the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC) and helping organizations proactively prevent and stop supply chain attacks on cloud native applications.

Aqua identifies software supply chain risks as threats coming from third-party artifacts, open source dependencies, and malicious actors targeting the unique developer toolset and environment.

To combat the growing risk to the software supply chain, Aqua is introducing new capabilities to add to its current supply chain solution.

These new capabilities make Aqua the only solution in the market that protects against supply chain risk from code all the way through to runtime, across both the application and underlying infrastructure, according to the company.

"Other vendors miss a piece of the equation," said Amir Jerbi, CTO and co-founder of Aqua Security. "For example, some solutions focus on the build while others focus on the code and build, but Aqua is the only solution that allows developers to offer proactive security measures across code, build, deploy and runtime phases. With this, we are giving developers and security teams the confidence to continue to build their cloud native application development capabilities and prevent supply chain attacks."

The Aqua Software Supply Chain Security Solution provides alerts and acceptance gates along the entire code and build stages to proactively reduce risk as early as possible in the development life cycle. These assurance policies can be automated, further shortening the feedback loop for development and security teams and eliminating these associated costs.

The solution is part of Aqua’s fully integrated Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP), the Aqua Platform. The Aqua Supply Chain Solution introduces new robust features, including:

  • Code Scanning
  • CI/CD Posture Management
  • Pipeline Security
  • Next-Generation SBOM
  • Open Source Health Assessment

The launch and rollout of Aqua’s Supply Chain Solution is the last step in the full integration of the Argon Security technology following the acquisition in December 2021.
