CA Technologies is enabling companies to integrate security into the earliest stages of development and assure security in deployment – an emerging practice that the company calls “DevSecOps.”
CA said it is positioned to deliver new capabilities to customers in the CA Automic, CA Veracode, and Continuous Delivery portfolios.
CA Continuous Delivery Director SaaS integrates the DevOps toolchain for visibility into the planning and troubleshooting of development projects, with the ability to assess pipeline progress and performance. It gives DevOps teams a way to eliminate a manual and burdensome process in release planning and management.
To bring security to the process, integration with CA Veracode makes application security testing a key component of the development process by initiating checks throughout the development pipeline. And additional integration with CA Automic Application Release Automation extends faster deployment capabilities with an automated, agile back end that delivers more reliable releases of code.
CA also announced new enhancements to its DevOps portfolio that deliver on the promise of faster software development and delivery. New releases in the Continuous Delivery portfolio and CA Digital Experience Monitoring accelerate and automate development and release, improve testing, and provide unprecedented visibility into digital experiences.
“As companies increasingly conduct business through their APIs, web and mobile applications, their ability to grow and keep pace with the competitive rate of change of their markets depends on implementing modern DevOps practices and tools to ensure velocity, quality and efficiency across the entire software development lifecycle,” said Jeff Scheaffer, general manager for continuous delivery at CA.
CA introduced new continuous testing and monitoring solutions built on open source and SaaS technologies that speed up and improve testing efficiency. With CA, development teams can catch more defects before reaching production. For example, testing tools such as CA BlazeMeter have been shown to improve application performance by 10x 1.
Enhancing CA’s continuous delivery and testing capabilities, CA BlazeMeter API Test, a lightweight SaaS-based API testing solution, gives developers the power to auto-generate and execute hundreds of test types concurrently.
CA Digital Experience Insights, a new SaaS-based digital experience monitoring and analytics solution, puts a holistic view of the user experience, application performance, and infrastructure management in the hands of developers and IT operations. CA Digital Experience Insights’ integrated set of services uses advanced data acquisition techniques, predictive analytics and machine learning.
