ShiftLeft Honored in Third Annual DevOps Dozen Awards Program -- Company Named 2017 Finalist in Best New DevOps Solutions Company Award Category for Introducing Industry’s First Fully-Automated App-Specific Cloud Security Solution
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Dec. 14, 2017 -- ShiftLeft™ Inc., an innovator in Application-specific cloud security, today announced it has been honored in the third annual DevOps Dozen Awards Program. The company has been named a 2017 finalist in the Best New DevOps Solutions Company awards category.
According to DevOps.com, as a finalist ShiftLeft is recognized as having "…exploded on the scene and really made an impact." Thousands of votes were cast nominating companies, and the six top vote recipients per category were named as finalists. One winner in each category will be selected by the judges from the list of finalists, with winners announced in early January.
"The DevOps Dozen acknowledges the best-of-the-best -- the leaders and innovators in the DevOps community," said Alan Shimel, editor-in-chief, DevOps.com. "We are proud to present the finalists for the DevOps Dozen 2017 as selected by you our readers and community. We appreciate everyone who voted in the nominations phase of this year's DevOps Dozen. Good luck and congratulations to all of the finalists. Just making it to the finals round is quite an accomplishment."
ShiftLeft delivers the industry's first fully automated SECaaS for cloud software that understands the security needs of each version of each application, and creates custom security and threat detection for it. With ShiftLeft, organizations can now secure their cloud applications as part of their continuous integration pipeline, rather than merely reacting to threats discovered in production. ShiftLeft identifies vulnerabilities in source code, enabling organizations to either fix them or protect against them in production using ShiftLeft's Microagent.
"While ShiftLeft has received industry accolades and recognition in the industry before, this finalist honor from DevOps.com is especially gratifying because it is the result of nominations from the DevOps community itself," said Manish Gupta, ShiftLeft CEO and co-founder. "ShiftLeft is unique in how it serves DevOps personnel because it injects threat detection into the very continuous integration/continuous deployment processes they are working on. Now DevOps can automate runtime protection for code weaknesses not yet fixed or not even identified yet, without compromising the pace of innovation."
With ShiftLeft, DevOps teams can track compliance requirements for regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for every release; for example, identifying violations such as when a credit card verification code is stored after authorization. Teams can leverage ShiftLeft’s pre-defined policies, or define custom dictionaries that suit their business requirements and development practices, to track the flow of sensitive data throughout their infrastructure.
