JFrog gets jump on Defense and threat intelligence designation

Developer tools company JFrog has achieved US Defense security certification for its Artifactory and Xray products, ahead of authorisation for its greater engagement with public Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) threat intelligence databases.

Lou Doerr, head of US commercial unit Oteemo, said: “Knowing JFrog’s Platform is Iron Bank-certified makes it easy to recommend them for use by public and private organidations needing software delivery solutions that bake in security from inception.”

Rapid software development is imperative for many customers, including the US military, but should never come at the expense of security, according to Doerr in JFrog’s press statement.

As part of the Iron Bank accreditation, JFrog Artifactory and Xray have been verified as ‘secure for use’ under the Department of Defense’s Platform One devsecops software initiative.

This will help deliver multilayer security and management to government entities and highly regulated industries via the JFrog software management platform, according to JFrog.

Under Platform One, developers can access a central binary repository of secure, Iron Bank-certified resources that have been hardened to Defense specifications — helping protect customers against threats like ransomware.

“This container registry has Continuous Authority to Operate (cATO), allowing developers to easily push validated code into production more quickly,” according to JFrog.

JFrog has also been authorised as a numbering authority for vulnerabilities exposures recorded on the public CVE database — which JFrog says will give it a larger role in helping accelerate threat detection worldwide.

Moran Ashkenazi, CISO and VP of security engineering at JFrog, said the certification enables JFrog to join a select group of organisations that identify security vulnerabilities and publish details for the public.

“It will not only allow us to help security researchers verify and triage their vulnerabilities but also help keep companies’ binaries more secure by collaborating on potential threats with the wider security community,” Ashkenazi said.

“We’re empowered to work with the community to accelerate threat detection and share information on new vulnerabilities before they compromise businesses.”

JFrog’s Q3 financial results announcement is on Thursday 4 November at 2pm, US Pacific time. Click here for the investor webcast.
