Trend Micro and Snyk enter strategic partnership to help businesses manage the risk of vulnerabilities without interrupting the software delivery process. The partnership between two global leaders will also concentrate on solving the unrelenting challenge that open source vulnerabilities create for developers, stemming from code-reuse, public repositories and open source.

“When it comes to DevOps, Trend Micro gets it. We’re excited to partner with Trend Micro to bring their enterprise customers an easy and scalable way to fix open source vulnerabilities. Together, we will continue to help organizations improve their ability to find vulnerabilities earlier in the development process and provide options for how to mitigate and prevent risk in software development,” professed Geva Solomonovich, Chief Operating Officer, Snyk.

Today, the major challenge for enterprise customers is the need for speed in developing applications. Speed and efficiency is gained by leveraging open source code.According to the Gartner open-source software is used within mission-critical IT workloads by over 95 percent of the IT organizations worldwide, whether they are aware of it or not.



Snyk Researchers also found that those vulnerabilities in open source libraries are growing rapidly, nearly doubling in two years.

Our collaboration demonstrates both companies’ understanding of the tools developers need and how we can provide security without getting in their way. This strategic partnership is the start of future collaboration as we both work to secure the DevOps workflow



The combination of open source vulnerability intelligence from Snyk and Trend Micro will result in the most comprehensive ability to detect vulnerabilities for teams operating in a DevOps environment. Once vulnerabilities in containers are identified, Trend Micro is the shield and Snyk is the fix that combines for streamlined remediation and risk mitigation.

“Snyk’s approach and trust they’ve built directly with the development community is unmatched. Our collaboration demonstrates both companies’ understanding of the tools developers need and how we can provide security without getting in their way. This strategic partnership is the start of future collaboration as we both work to secure the DevOps workflow,” proclaimed Kevin Simzer, Chief Operating Officer, Trend Micro.
