Software supply chain security for cloud-native stacks

Bridgecrew Supply Chain Security provides visibility into and protection for your code and pipelines that comprise your cloud software supply chains. Visualize the connected components within your repos and pipelines from code to cloud. Harden your VCS and CI/CD configurations to prevent code injection or secrets exposure.

Our approach

Why software supply chain security?

Software supply chains are the heartbeat of cloud-native organizations. Designed to deliver code from developers’ local environments to production as fast as possible, they require constant tuning and can become quite complex.

Cloud supply chains are essential and increasingly becoming a target for attacks. One weakness—used in isolation or chained with others—can lead to exposed secrets, injected malicious code, leaked sensitive data, and more. But threat modeling for supply chains is a challenge.

Insecure code components

Open-source infrastructure as code (IaC) templates, code libraries, and container images provide a head start during development to create new features and tools. However, your running applications and infrastructure are only as secure as the code that makes them up.

Exposed pipelines

Delivery pipelines are essential for automating otherwise manual tasks of traditional supply chains but compromised VCS and CI/CD pipelines can lead to data leakage and malicious code injection.

Misconfigured resources and workloads

If gone undetected, misconfigured resources in code and vulnerable images can be deployed to your runtime environment, causing noisy alerts and weaknesses that attackers can leverage.


Ensuring supply chain security with Bridgecrew

You can’t secure what you can’t see. By bringing together visibility into your code components, delivery pipelines, and cloud resources from one platform, Bridgecrew makes it easier to analyze and improve the posture of your cloud-based supply chain.

Secure code components

Scan your IaC, Dockerfiles, and code libraries for security issues throughout the development lifecycle. By identifying common security misconfigurations and known vulnerabilities early and often, you can harden your infrastructure over time.

Secure code pipelines

Bridgecrew’s policy library is equipped with policies to reduce prevent malicious attacks by continuously assessing your VCS organizations, repo configurations, and CI/CD workflow configurations to keep them up-to-date with security best practices.

End-to-end visibility

With Bridgecrew’s Supply Chain Graph visualization, you get easy-to-consume insight into your supply chain attack surface. By laying out repository trees with security posture data overlaid, you can understand risk across components and pipelines.
