Leaping Forward – Risk Based Security & JFrog Launch 2019 With A New Partnership

Risk Based Security (RBS), the elite provider of comprehensive vulnerability intelligence and vendor risk ratings, is pleased to announce the launch of a new partnership with JFrog, the DevOps technology leader known for enabling liquid software via Continuous Update flows and the creator of Xray, JFrog’s flagship security and compliance scanning solution.

Risk Based Security’s founder and CISO Jake Kouns said of the partnership, “We have known for some time that combining VulnDB with the right partner would produce extraordinary value for the DevOps community. When we surveyed the various tools out there in the marketplace, it was clear that Xray – with its unparalleled visibility into software components and the vision that JFrog leadership has for the product – was where we wanted to be. Together Xray and VulnDB deliver powerful results that enables faster development cycles as well as ensuring much more secure code than other competitors.”

RBS’ VulnDB, which provides ongoing, detailed vulnerability intelligence covering more than 21,000 vendors and spanning over 196,000 vulnerabilities, is built on the principle that better data matters when it comes to effective prioritization and remediation of vulnerabilities. Too often security teams are left struggling with an incomplete picture of their vulnerability exposure landscape. These holes consume valuable time and resources as teams try to fill in the blind spots, or worse, result in a crippling security incident or data breach. Combining comprehensive coverage with speed of delivery, VulnDB solves this problem by delivering continuous, high quality and actionable intelligence for more effective vulnerability management.

JFrog shares RBS’ commitment to innovation and delivering best-in-class solutions. To this point, JFrog’s Xray is widely recognized as the go-to solution for monitoring software as it flows through the pipeline from code into production. As Shlomi Ben Haim, JFrog Co-Founder and CEO explained,  “900% growth YoY and over 2,200 Xray installations tell us that JFrog Xray answers developers’ real security concerns by offering a deep, recursive scanning and impact analysis solution. JFrog offers developers the two fundamental pillars of DevOps: Speed and Security. Therefore, when it comes to our customers’ CI/CD pipelines, we are determined to build more than just a ‘security-alarm-system’ – we are committed to offering a first-class, universal, automated solution to support DevOps at scale.”
