Progress has announced the release of Chef Cloud Security, extending DevSecOps with compliance support for native cloud assets and enabling end-to-end management of all on premise, cloud and native cloud resources. This offering is complemented with new capabilities across the Chef portfolio targeting DevOps success in the most demanding and complex enterprise deployments. With Chef Cloud Security, organizations can extend their same proven, trusted DevOps approach to easily manage any combination of public, private and hybrid cloud workloads.
Progress Chef Cloud Security enables existing skillsets without time consuming and costly training for managing compliance and security posture for cloud native technologies including Containers, Kubernetes and microservices, ensuring the greatest possible DevOps coverage across entire fleets of assets. It supports native-cloud assets for multi-cloud deployment across AWS, Azure, Google and Alibaba clouds using certified CIS/DISA STIG profiles to continually scan and automatically detect security configuration issues.
The new offering coordinate security, development, testing and operations participation makes it easy to shift security checks to the left applying policy checks at every stage of the DevOps pipeline with coded artifacts, automated tests and enterprise control and visibility via Policy as Code approach. It also bolsters success with the right mix of training, community and DevRel assistance, technical support as well as cloud aligned pricing and licensing.
Complementing the new Chef Cloud Security offering, Progress continues to invest in Progress Chef InSpec, the core underlying security and compliance mechanism.
As a long-time proponent of the collaboration-based ‘infrastructure as code’, Chef has applied the same principles to introduce a ‘policy as code’ for security and compliance. Chef now helps organizations achieve their goal of using a single ‘as code’ framework for their infrastructure, application, desktop, security and compliance concerns across their entire on premise, cloud and edge device inventory.
The complete set of Chef capabilities are available as part of the Progress Chef Enterprise Automation Stack (EAS).
