This approach, according to New Relic, allows engineering teams to manage security risk at scale and accelerate secure software delivery and operation.
It extends the observability platform's coverage to aggregate native vulnerability detection and existing security data from the incumbent security solutions, giving DevOps, SecOps, NetOps, SRE and other engineering team "total visibility" of the vulnerabilities in their software stack.
"Minimising security risk across the entire software development life cycle is imperative—and we are seeing more pressure on DevOps to manage risk while making sure it doesn't become a blocker to the pace of innovation," said New Relic CEO Bill Staples.
"New Relic Vulnerability Management delivers more value to engineers harnessing the power of observability with our platform approach, and accelerates our mission to help every engineer do their best work with data, not opinions."
New Relic chief architect for Asia Pacific and Japan Peter Marelas said "Open source is a common source of vulnerability. According to New Relic's 2021 Observability Forecast, over half (57%) of organisations in ASEAN are investing 5-10% of their budgets into open source, with almost a third (30%) committing over 10% of their budgets.
"With increasing investment in open source technologies, there is a clear need to surface software vulnerabilities to all engineers through the SDLC so they are empowered to address them before they turn into production security incidents."
Vulnerability Management will be available at no additional charge to every user of the full New Relic platform. They are currently available in limited preview.
