Snyk partners can be instrumental in improving overall supply chain security by fostering a fixing-based culture instead of a find-and audit-based culture.

The-Gately-Report-logo-300x200.jpgThat’s according to Manoj Nair, Snyk’s chief product officer. Snyk‘s platform allows organizations to scan, prioritize and fix security vulnerabilities in their own code, open source dependencies, container images and infrastructure as code (IaC) configurations.

Earlier this year, ServiceNow made a $25 million strategic investment in Synk. This followed Snyk closing a $196.5 million Series G funding round.

“We have a bunch of things that we’re working on with the partner community, both the SI partners, the bigger ones, and also the channel partners,” Nair said. “We’re helping them with better programs on working with us, but also the knowledge base and training, and partner certification that allows them to take some of the expertise we have built over the years with DevOps and DevSecOps, and how you become developer-aware security. How do you help transform your customers who are trying to make this change from a traditional audit-oriented approach to app security, to more modern developer security aspects. So there’s that certification and training investment, too.”

Many partners are utilizing Snyk‘s partner certification, he said.

“So it’s programs, it’s the reach, and it’s also now helping get our partners the right enablement and context required so they can do the value-added services,” Nair said. “A lot of our customers need help. It’s not just the tool. This is the process change. This is thinking about, how do I make that culture change? And those are all value-added opportunities for our partners that we’re now enabling them to succeed in.”
