Micro Focus has expanded its partnership with Sonatype, a provider of open source governance and security. The companies have worked together exclusively, in support of Micro Focus’ application security as a service offering, Fortify on Demand, and collaborating across joint enterprise clients. The enhanced relationship will result in a new integration, optimized specifically for Fortify’s on-premises application security solutions and Software Security Center. Fortify and Sonatype customers will be able to use a single, integrated application security platform. Micro Focus also hopes that the expanded partnership will allow it to help clients accelerate their DevSecOps initiatives and proactively address security concerns by “shifting left” in the development lifecycle. For example, with Sonatype’s platform developers are presented with the insight they need directly within their development tools to select the highest quality libraries from the beginning; policies are then used to automate governance throughout the DevOps pipeline.
