“Any organization using public cloud has an application infrastructure with hundreds of tools and applications that can access their code,” he said. “And yet, they have limited visibility to their configuration or if they are secured. Cider has made it possible to connect into infrastructure, analyze the tools, and identify the risks, as well as how to remediate them.”
Palo Alto Networks is acquiring Cider Security for its innovation, Klarich said. That will help enable Prisma Cloud to provide what anyone doing cloud operations has to have.
Cider Security provides security and engineering teams with a single, consistent method to orchestrate and implement end-to-end continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) security through a single, unified platform.
Guy Flechter is Cider Security’s CEO.
“We designed an AppSec platform that allows engineering to continue to move fast, without making compromises on security,” he said. “It’s only fitting that we join Palo Alto Networks, a company built upon landmark cybersecurity firsts. There couldn’t be a better fit for Cider. By scanning and securing the CI/CD pipeline, we can help identify where there may be vulnerabilities in your code. Prisma Cloud will now be the ultimate solution for code-to-cloud security.”
