JFrog, the DevOps technology leader known for enabling liquid software via Continuous Update flows, is announcing that Xray, JFrog’s flagship security and compliance scanning solution, will now provide the most comprehensive, integrated security solution in the market through a partnership with Risk Based Security [RBS]. RBS is the provider of VulnDB, which contains the world’s broadest set of vulnerability intelligence. As a result of the partnership, all JFrog Xray customers will now be protected from more than 194,000 unique vulnerabilities, as they monitor their pipelines from code through production.

Famous data breaches at companies like MarriottEquifax and others have highlighted the importance of discovering software vulnerabilities early and often. By detecting software vulnerabilities late or in an incomplete manner, companies risk being in the headlines and are therefore turning to software security scanning products to assist them.

While most software security solutions utilize the vulnerabilities made public through online resources, such as the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), JFrog, by embedding VulnDB into Xray, will provide customers industry-leading vulnerability intelligence that includes over 64,000 vulnerabilities and data not found in the NVD. The intelligence from VulnDB, coupled with JFrog’s deep, universal understanding of software package types will provide the broadest-reaching protection of any security scanning product, spanning from developer code commits all the way through production software in a Kubernetes cluster.

“We are excited to include the world’s richest vulnerability intelligence database in Xray, and provide our users with the best tool in the DevSecOps market with Risk Based Security’s VulnDB,” said Shlomi Ben Haim, JFrog Co-Founder and CEO. “900% growth YoY and over 2,200 Xray installations tell us that JFrog Xray answers developers’ real security concerns by offering a deep, recursive scanning and impact analysis solution. JFrog offers developers the two fundamental pillars of DevOps: Speed and Security. Therefore, when it comes to our customers’ CI/CD pipelines, we are determined to build more than just a ‘security-alarm-system’ – we are committed to offering a first-class, universal, automated solution to support DevOps at scale.”

The full breadth, depth, and timeliness of vulnerability intelligence from the VulnDB database will be automatically added to Xray in stages starting immediately, with full integration between VulnDB and Xray expected in mid-2019. All updates will also be made available offline for JFrog customers who run datacenters without access to the internet.

“Identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities in a timely fashion is a critical component of managing risk in today’s enterprises,” said Barry Kouns, Co-Founder and CEO of Risk Based Security. “VulnDB is the only comprehensive vulnerability intelligence feed that is able to provide actionable insight as quickly as organizations need it to address vulnerabilities in their code. We are excited to partner with JFrog to seamlessly deliver this critical intelligence into the DevSecOps market through JFrog Xray.”

VulnDB is included in JFrog Xray at no additional charge, and users will be able to take full advantage of this new functionality starting with Xray’s next release. VulnDB intelligence is available in both on-premise and SaaS versions of JFrog Xray.
