Bridgecrew Celebrates Significant Growth Milestones In Its First Year Of Codified Cloud Security
Bridgecrew is disrupting the cloud security landscape by transforming reactive cloud monitoring into actionable feedback delivered as code and embedded into CI/CD. In furthering its mission to close the gap between cloud security and DevOps, Bridgecrew celebrated several milestones.
Launched as part of the company’s $14M Series A announcement in April, the Bridgecrew platform provides security scanning and remediation-as-code for infrastructure wherever it is—from infrastructure as code (IaC) to the cloud. Bridgecrew’s robust cloud security capabilities and developer-first approach have contributed to its impressive adoption; in 2H 2020, both its customer base and monthly sign-ups tripled.
“The pace at which Bridgecrew has added new features, integrations, and use cases is astounding,” said Caleb Sima, VP of Security at Databricks and Bridgecrew customer and advisor. “Bridgecrew sets itself apart from traditional vendors in its ability to make cloud security feedback both accessible to developers and actionable to security.”
Open-source community growth
Bridgecrew developed four open-source projects in the past year, including its hallmark IaC scanner, Checkov. Used by individual contributors and Fortune 100 companies alike, Checkov passed one million downloads in Q4 2020, a strong indicator of the transformation underway within the infrastructure security landscape.
“It has been amazing to watch Checkov mature and gain traction so quickly,” said Corcoran Smith, Solution Architect at Slalom and Bridgecrew advisor. “Checkov has become a key component of the infrastructure developer toolkit and is paving the way for developer-first cloud security.”
