Growth is a great feeling! Whether it’s plants in the garden, dough rising, or increasing the number of developers and teams that are building applications and services in your organization - you can’t help but love seeing things grow. 

However, growing without the right tools to support your scaling needs can open you up to newsworthy security risks in your organisation. These risks range from malicious users being where they shouldn’t, crippling vulnerabilities drowned in a sea of less severe issues, or having to pull the shutters down because you’re no longer compliant with industry standards. 

With our largest customers managing hundreds of organisations, thousands of developers, and hundreds of thousands of projects, Snyk is devoted to ensuring these customers are successful at this scale.

In this session I’m going to cover: 
  • What “scale” means for enterprises, and the common security issues that appear with it such as authorization gaps, incorrect prioritisation of issues, and blindspots with legal compliance
  • How Snyk helps customers work at this scale, while promoting developer adoption for Open Source Security 
  • A deep dive into some features in Snyk which help support specific scaling needs such as the Snyk API, Project tagging, Project Attributes, and Policies
  • Learn how large  enterprises identify and remediate major security issues when scaling with minimum disruption
  • Learn the tools and strategies you can leverage to improve developer adoption of security tools and policies as organizations scale
  • Learn how to use key capabilities within Snyk such as the API, tagging and attributes, and Snyk Policies
