The 10 Coolest DevOps Tools Of 2021 (So Far)

Wade Tyler Millward

CRN takes a look at a sampling of some of the coolest DevOps tools so far this year.

Snyk

Founded in 2015, the Boston-based company offers a platform that helps businesses quickly develop, scale and secure applications, targeting developers rather than security IT personnel to help them fix security issues in their source code as well as their Kubernetes and container applications.

The company received a large amount of venture capital this year to help with go-to-market efforts and to improve its platform. In March, Boston-based Snyk closed its Series E funding round of $300 million with plans to use some of the proceeds to build out go-to-market teams in Australia, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and Singapore. It raised $150 million in January.

Some of the proceeds will go into improving security through partnerships with developer-first companies such as Atlassian, Datadog, Docker, Dynatrace and Red Hat.

In May, Snyk announced the acquisition of FossID, a Swedish company that offers a software composition analysis tool that scans code for open source licenses and vulnerabilities. The plan is to integrate FossID’s capabilities into Snyk’s software composition analysis (SCA) tool, Snyk Open Source.

In June, Gartner named Snyk (pronounced “sneak”) in the 2021 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST).
