Snyk is a technology company offering a software development security platform using open-source code. Snyk was founded in 2015 by Assaf Hefetz, Danny Grander, and Guy Podjarny. The company was founded in London and Tel Aviv and now has its headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts. The Snyk platform is made for developers to automatically detect and fix vulnerabilities associated with its open-source code. Snyk serves over 1,200 companies, including Asurion, Google, Intuit, MongoDB, New Relic, Revolut, and Salesforce. The company has been recognized on the Forbes Cloud 100 2021 list and the 2021 CNBC Disruptor 50 list and was named a Visionary in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for AST.
Snyk's developer security platform, designed for collaboration between security and development teams, automatically integrates with a developer’s workflow and ensures the security of critical application components. Snyk looks for vulnerabilities in four places: user code, open-source dependencies, container images, and infrastructure as code (IaC) configurations. After locating issues, Snyk gives context to the issues and offers prioritization and remediation advice.
User code is scanned, fixed, and verified using Snyk's automated remediation advice based on the identified issue. Source code repositories are integrated to scan for issues and vulnerabilities, which can be prioritized with context to secure applications. Dockerfiles are linked to fix and secure containers and continuously monitor container images. CI/CD pipeline tools are connected to test IaC configurations.
Snyk Code is a cloud security software product that helps secure code as it is written and tested. This software is designed for developers, and as such, it is intended to be developer-friendly, is automated to be fast and easy to use, and works to find vulnerabilities and help developers fix them before those vulnerabilities go live. Snyk Code works with the most popular languages, IDEs, and CI/CD tools.
Snyk Open Source is developed to find vulnerabilities in open-source libraries and helps developers prioritize and fix security vulnerabilities and license issues in open-source dependencies while providing software composition analysis in order to secure the software integrations. Snyk also monitors dependencies continuously to ensure ongoing security, with anomalies and detected risks reported through users' preferred reporting channels. And the software can be used to automate open-source security management and governance.
Snyk Container is a security software for containers and Kubernetes to help developers find and fix vulnerabilities throughout a container environment. The software includes automated remediation, monitoring with context to help prioritize remediation based on context and exploitability, and the ability to find and fix vulnerabilities in open-source dependencies used in base images and Dockerfile commands.
Snyk's Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is an automated security and compliance software for development workflows in pre-deployment and is intended to detect drift and missing resources post-deployment. Snyk can be deployed to secure infrastructure configurations in the cloud and can increase the IaC coverage to help developers surface unmanaged and drifted resources and allows users to bring them under control.
Snyk also offers cloud security so users can develop a unified policy to allow every team to develop, deploy, and operate within the cloud while maintaining an organization's security. This can detect cloud security issues as developers design configurations and provide remediation recommendations.
