GitLab and Google Cloud have extended their partnership to deliver secure AI offerings to the enterprise. GitLab is trusted by more than 50% of the Fortune 100 to secure and protect their most valuable assets, and leads with a privacy-first approach to AI. By leveraging Google Cloud’s customizable foundation models and open generative AI infrastructure, GitLab will provide customers with AI-assisted features directly within the enterprise DevSecOps platform.
With Vertex AI, and leveraging the Built with Google Cloud AI program, GitLab will be able to leverage Google’s foundation models to provide customers with AI-powered offerings within its cloud infrastructure. This allows GitLab to maintain its commitment to protecting user privacy by containing customer intellectual property and source code within GitLab’s cloud infrastructure.
GitLab plans to improve its customers’ DevSecOps workflow efficiency by 10x, by applying AI-assisted workflows to all users involved in delivering software value. By implementing AI-powered capabilities throughout the software development lifecycle, GitLab delivers value across the enterprise, enabling faster business transformation, without sacrificing security or privacy.
This first experimental feature leveraging Google Cloud’s generative AI models is called Explain this Vulnerability. This capability empowers companies to make security a cross-organizational effort, by providing users with a natural language description of vulnerabilities found in their code and a recommendation for how to resolve them at the time of detection. Explain this Vulnerability can be used by developers, as well as security and operations teams, allowing customers to stay secure while remaining efficient and improving speed to delivery.
