10 Cybersecurity Companies Making Moves: July 2023
We’re taking a look at some of the cybersecurity companies that launched new products and partner programs, unveiled acquisitions or made key executive hires in July.
Palo Alto Networks
In late July, Palo Alto Networks unveiled the introduction of a CI/CD Security module to its Prisma Cloud CNAPP (cloud native application protection platform). The new capability—based on technology from the acquisition of Cider Security in late 2022—will provide partners and customers with “integrated software delivery pipeline security,” the cybersecurity giant said in a news release.
One key benefit of the CI/CD Security module is that it offers unified visibility “across the engineering ecosystem,” including code repositories and contributors as well as any technologies and pipelines that are utilized, the company said in a blog post. The visibility is available through the newly added Application Security dashboard in Prisma Cloud.
Other benefits include enhanced protection against the 10 biggest CI/CD risks—as determined by the Open Worldwide Application Security Project—as well as posture management capabilities for delivery pipelines and attack path analysis, Palo Alto Networks said. Attack path analysis is available through the new Prisma Cloud Application Graph and enables improved understanding and analysis of the environment as well as “relationships between all artifacts from code to deployment,” the company said in the post.
