Snyk Ups Prioritization Capabilities
July 24, 2020
has made significant enhancements to its Prioritization capabilities,
helping security and development teams automatically identify and fix
the most critical vulnerabilities. By giving developers the immediate
priority scoring, deep application context, customizable security
policies, and Snyk's automated fix PRs, security teams can ensure their
developers are fixing the most important open source and container
vulnerabilities, as quickly as possible.
"Snyk's prioritization helps us answer the critical questions: out of
the limited time and resources we have, where do we focus our
remediation activities to address the highest risk," said Marcin Hoppe,
Senior Manager of Product Security, Auth0.
Development and security teams today face an overwhelming volume of
security vulnerabilities from multiple information channels, making it
difficult to know where to start and how to tackle the highest risk
issues. Since teams simply cannot remediate each and every issue, they
must prioritize their remediation efforts by identifying and addressing
the vulnerabilities based on what matters most, maximizing limited time
and resources, and ultimately strengthening the security posture of the
organization. To be effective, though, prioritization requires security
expertise and deep context to inform accurate decisions.
Prioritization capabilities offer the market a complete and intelligent
solution that includes:
Instant prioritization: Accelerate triaging and remediation with
baseline prioritization recommendations.
Deep application context: Prioritize vulnerabilities by using deep
insight into how your applications are running.
Governance at scale: Manage prioritization more easily with automated
and customized security policies.
"One of the challenges we face is knowing what to fix first and how to
invest developer resources effectively," said Oliver Crawford, Software
Engineer, Skyscanner. "The prioritization data provided by Snyk
dramatically helps us focus our team's efforts and we look forward to
expanding this new capability to even more developers across our
"We hear from customers of all sizes that prioritizing vulnerability
remediation to accelerate developer productivity is a top priority,"
said Peter McKay, Snyk CEO. "By offering automated priority scoring,
deep intelligence into the vulnerability and its potential risk, and
customizable security thresholds, we are now able to give the developers
the insight they need to continue to build and secure their applications
in a way that saves hours of manual time and labor."
