As part of Snyk’s mission — to enable developers to use open source software while staying secure — we place a lot of emphasis on our integrations across the software delivery cycle. Scanning and fixing code in your repository is a powerfully dynamic way to secure your app early and often. However, it doesn’t stop there. With our integrations and plugins for leading CI/CD platforms, Snyk enables a further, more DevOps-focused security gate through the pipeline.
With that in mind, it is no wonder that the team here at Snyk is excited to be a founding member of the newly formed Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF). The CDF, launched by the Linux Foundation, aims to take a coordinated approach between vendors and projects to solve some of the biggest CI/CD challenges.
About the Continuous Delivery Foundation
Continuous delivery (CD) is a software engineering approach in which teams produce software in short cycles, ensuring that the software can be reliably released at any time. The Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) is a Linux Foundation initiative that serves as the vendor-neutral home for many of the fastest-growing projects, including Jenkins, Jenkins X, Spinnaker, and Tekton. The CDF fosters collaboration between the industry’s top developers, end users, and vendors to further advance continuous delivery best practices. For more information about the CDF, please visit https://cd.foundation.
What does the Continuous Delivery Foundation value? The Foundation has some key values and principles.
believes in the power of Continuous Delivery to empower developers and teams and to produce high-quality software more rapidly;
believes in open source solutions collectively addressing the whole of the software delivery lifecycle;
fosters and sustains the ecosystem of open-source, vendor-neutral projects through collaborations and interoperability; and
advocates this idea and encourages collaborations among practitioners to share and improve their practices.
Founding members of the Continuous Delivery Foundation
Snyk has proudly joined 22 other founding members of the CDF. Each brings their own value to the foundation and we're excited to help shape the security practices and open standards of such an important industry collaboration.
Continuous delivery is the foundation for modern software development, providing the acceleration, assurance, and governance needed for the fast pace we seek. Snyk is excited to see the CDF bring this community together to accelerate CI/CD practices themselves. With our focus on empowering developers to own security through the software lifecycle, we aim to help ensure security is built into this modern software pipeline.
