How to Secure and Automate Jenkins Pipelines?

Three things to ensure 100% successful application delivery- Security, Safety and Automation

Jenkins is a great CI tool but is often extended using scripts to implement security while developing the delivery pipelines. The DevOps team invests their precious time in creating and maintaining custom scripts. And it is incredibly challenging to guarantee security while delivering applications at scale using Jenkins. 

You can now put a layer on top of Jenkins to implement DevSecOps in just a few minutes. OpsMx offers Deploy Shield for Jenkins to ensure software supply chain security. You can prevent potential vulnerabilities at every stage of the software delivery and deploy applications safely and securely.

Deploy Shield for Jenkins

OpsMx provides Deploy Shield for enterprises using Jenkins to detect vulnerabilities across all the applications, allowing them to create policies and achieve 100% compliance around security and regulatory mandates.

Central DevSecOps Dashboard for all Applications

OpsMx SSD offers a DevSecOps dashboard to understand the security risks associated with all the applications, getting deployed using Jenkins, across various teams and geography. DevOps team get holistic information about security vulnerabilities wrt each service, deployment date, developers, etc. will help owners make decisions faster regarding deployments and delivery.

Delivery Bill of Materials (DBOM) for entire CI/CD

DBOM is an essential item for organisations with high scale delivery and a fleet of microservices. SSD integrates with Jenkins and other DevOps tools to provide the DBOM for any application across various stages of CI/CD. Get information such as vulnerability reports of application, binaries, and dependencies, test coverage reports, security benchmarking, etc at your fingertips.

Deployment Firewall

OpsMx SSD continuously monitors the security posture of your application and tells you exactly where any new vulnerability is in your environment. SSD provides the mechanism to create security and compliance rules based on the posture and enforce them at the deployment stage of your software delivery. Apply deployment firewalls to Jenkins to fail or rollback applications in case of failed security checks.

Automated Security Policies for Jenkins Pipeline

OpsMx SSD empowers DevSecOps team to create automated policies and implement them to Jenkins pipelines. Preventive delivery policies such as stopping a delivery pipeline based on vulnerability metrics can easily be enforced. SSD provides flexibility to create various rules, alerts and warnings based on security posture to enable a risk-free software delivery process.

Audit and Compliance Delivery

Make your software delivery using Jenkins compliant to industry standards with automated audit and compliance reports generated by OpsMx SSD. Instead of DevOps team spending time to collect information from disparate systems, SSD provides audit and attestation reports with information highlighting who, what, and when pipeline execution and policy violations.

Delivery Intelligence for Jenkins

The value-add to enterprises is not restricted to using SSD. You can augment speed and volume of the software release and delivery with security for Jenkins by integrating it with OpsMx Secure CD. Let Jenkins handle the CI, and OpsMx automate your continuous delivery and implement security without writing any code / scripts.

For Jenkins- No code hybrid cloud deployments

No-code Hybrid-cloud Deployments

Secure CD provides automated pipelines to deploy both microservices and monolithic applications into Cloud, containers, VM, or server-less platforms at scale. Secure CD complements Jenkins by providing out-of-the-box deployment capabilities for public cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure) and managed Kubernetes (OpenShift, EKS, AKS, GKE).

No-code Advanced Deployment Strategies

Secure CD provides automated pipelines to deploy both microservices and monolithic applications into Cloud, containers, VM, or server-less platforms at scale. Secure CD complements Jenkins by providing out-of-the-box deployment capabilities for public cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure) and managed Kubernetes (OpenShift, EKS, AKS, GKE).

Risk scores for quality, performance, reliability, and security

Automated Verification of Releases at Scale

With the Secure CD, you can automatically collect logs and metrics and apply NLP and unsupervised machine learning to calculate the overall risk score of new deployments. The delivery intelligence module of Secure CD determines individual risk scores wrt quality, performance, reliability, and security of each release.
