We are thrilled to announce that Snyk, a leading provider of cloud native application security solutions, has achieved the prestigious AWS Security Competency status. The AWS Security Competency validates Snyk's deep security expertise and commitment to delivering a comprehensive application security solution for modern organizations building and running their applications on the Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The AWS Security Competency
The AWS Security Competency is an esteemed designation reserved for AWS Partners who demonstrate profound knowledge and proven success in helping customers implement comprehensive security solutions on AWS. This recognition showcases Snyk's ability to deliver modern security services that enable customers to confidently build, deploy, and manage applications while adhering to the highest security standards.
Modern security risks require modern security solutions
Millions of customers leverage AWS and its hundreds of services to build, run, and scale applications efficiently in the cloud. AWS offers the infrastructure, services, innovation, and reliability to help run customer’s mission-critical applications, but based on AWS’ shared security responsibility model, customers still require a trusted security partner to help proactively ensure the security of their applications. In order to shift to an iterative DevSecOps model of application development, however, customers must focus on security solutions that can integrate across the SDLC, building automated security controls earlier into the development process.
As a result, Snyk has partnered closely with AWS to provide a security platform that helps developers scan applications for vulnerabilities in code, open source dependencies, containers and IaC configurations, from the very first line of code all the way to the running cloud environment. Built on a comprehensive, proprietary vulnerability database, Snyk’s solution provides tight integration into existing developer workflows, source control tooling, CI/CD pipelines, registries, and even Kubernetes clusters in order to meet developers wherever they work and help drastically reduce mean-time-to-fix.
In achieving the AWS Security Competency, Snyk is technically validated to work seamlessly across public and private AWS environments, integrated with the AWS services customers use to build and run their apps.
Innovate securely with Snyk and AWS
Snyk was purpose-built to help organizations around the world accelerate their digital transformation, securely fueling innovation through cloud native workflows. The achievement of the AWS Security Competency underscores the value of Snyk’s strategic partnership with AWS, and is just one of many validations Snyk has achieved to prove its close technical relationship with the world’s leading cloud provider.
As an Advanced Technology Partner within AWS' Partner Network (APN), Snyk has been technically validated to earn the AWS DevOps Competency.
Snyk is also available to purchase directly from the AWS Marketplace, allowing customers to consolidate invoicing and streamline their procurement process by leveraging their existing budget and billing mechanisms to purchase Snyk software. For customers who have agreed to a spending commitment with AWS through the Enterprise Discount Program (EDP), purchasing Snyk in the AWS Marketplace will help them burn down their spending commitment with AWS.
