Oak9, a developer-first infrastructure-as-code (IaC) security provider, says that enterprises have begun to adopt the concept of treating applications as code. For instance, policy-as-code tools like HashiCorp Sentinel are designed to define  governance or policy principles. Oak9’s platform is powered by its proprietary Security as Code (SaC), which is designed to assess changes to cloud-native infrastructure — applying the right security against SaC blueprints to risk-appropriately secure a cloud application’s architecture. 

The company said organizations today are leveraging multiple tools, technologies and so on. This is why multicloud/multi-IaC language environments are becoming popular. Oak9’s technology-agnostic eliminates managing security across multiple tools at once. 

The company claims to work with integrated development environments (IDEs), code repositories, continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines and chat ops tools, so developers can use their choice of IaC languages, clouds, multiclouds, workflows and so on. 

According to Alex Brown, at the venture capital firm HPA — which led a recent funding round for Oak9 — the market’s IaC adoption has accelerated, making security of cloud apps a vital need which Oak9 can address. 

Oak9, claims that its platform accelerates the delivery of cloud-native applications while offering security to identify and address any vulnerabilities. The platform is designed to tell users where security vulnerabilities live in an organization’s cloud, how critical they are, why they exist and how to remediate. With the tool, organizations have the capability  to apply the security fix across their cloud infrastructure.
