Trend Micro introduces Open Source Security service for Cloud One

May 31, 2021
Trend Micro has unveiled Open Source Security by Snyk, which enables vulnerability detection, visibility enhancement and tracking automation for open-source software, according to IT Brief.

The software-as-a-service solution, which is available through Cloud One and AWS Marketplace, is Trend Micro’s first partner addition to the Cloud One service platform and was co-developed with Snyk.

Snyk says 80% of current application code is open-source, and open-source vulnerabilities have increased 2.5 times over the past three years, which necessitates the development of stronger security solutions in this space.

“Snyks developer-first security technology to Trend Micro's Cloud One allows more customers to tackle open-source risk on a single platform, minimising the need to manage multiple vendors and tools,” said Geva Solomonovich, Snyk’s global alliances CTO.

The service’s capabilities also include detection of licensing-related vulnerabilities and issues, and automation to allow security teams to find indirect open-source dependencies that may not be immediately identifiable in applications.
