Busy DevOps teams need a security solution that fits into their world, not legacy tools designed for a different era. Threat Stack was built to fit seamlessly into your workflow and helps you apply DevOps principles to security and operational processes.

The Threat Stack Approach

Secure the CI/CD Pipeline

Traditional security checks focus on the code moving through the CI/CD pipeline, but not the tools and processes that make up the pipeline itself. Highly automated CI/CD pipelines use infrastructure keys, code signing keys, application source code, and other sensitive information that an attacker can abuse. Threat Stack secures your build infrastructure with the same care as the production environments where your software ultimately runs.

Extend Your Over-extended Team

The ratio of developers to security team members is often 100:1 or worse. By enlisting Threat Stack experts for 24X7 monitoring, your own security team members are freed up to focus on working directly with the development team to help them build security in from the start.

Integrate with the Tools You Use

Fast moving DevOps teams rely on configuration management tools including Chef, Puppet, Ansible, and Salt. With Threat Stack integrations, you can automatically spin up new secure servers and automate releases, updates, and patches.

It means DEV and SEC and OPS

The philosophies, processes, practices, and tools that we call DevOps create a culture where development, operations, and all other stakeholders work together, rather than being in isolated silos. For too long, Security teams were left out of this arrangement — and that created friction and slowed development velocity. Security needs to act as a business partner, not a gatekeeper.

The Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform® is intuitive for operations, so they can take ownership of the security of their environments. Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring provides proactive guidance to developers — in their own language — early in the development process when risk is easiest to address. And Security teams gain the visibility and control they need to reduce overall risk across the entire cloud infrastructure stack.

Automate manual processes, so security doesn’t slow you down.

Automation is a core principle of DevOps. Threat Stack can help you automate manual processes, like digging through log files and finding relevant data across disparate point solutions. Then, it surfaces the information and context you need, so you can take action quickly. Threat Stack also helps you build security and compliance into the system automation tools you’re already using — like baking our agent into recipes using Chef, Puppet, Ansible, and more — so you can make Threat Stack another part of your existing workflow. All of this automation saves you time, so you can focus on DevOps-ing the next big thing.

Close the feedback loop.

Threat Stack works to close the feedback loop by helping you detect and take action on events immediately, before they become catastrophic. Integrations with Slack, PagerDuty, and other communication tools enable your team to respond within their workflow and encourage them to proactively communicate about changes that may introduce risk.

Have peace of mind that you’ll stay secure, while Development and operations teams practice DevOps.

DevOps is all about iteration and speed — two concepts that are typically at odds with security. Threat Stack’s ThreatML™ creates a baseline of expected activity. As a result, your security team will have complete visibility into anomalous behavior, along with transparency into why ThreatML detected it. This means that developers can have broader access to systems they are writing code for, working closely with operations team members to better understand how they will support the systems that run their code. Meanwhile, Threat Stack will give you complete visibility — so you can feel confident you’ll be made aware of suspicious behavior — and can take immediate action — without slowing your team down with blockers and permissions.
