New Relic announced the general availability of New Relic Vulnerability Management to provide customers with security monitoring, helping engineering teams identify and triage vulnerabilities across their tech stack, all in one place.

This includes new Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) capabilities, added to New Relic with the acquisition of K2 Cyber Security, that enable teams to perform vulnerability testing without having to make any code changes or interrupting normal business operations. Vulnerability Management is available out of the box and available without additional configuration.

Vulnerability Management is a natural addition to New Relic’s existing 30+ observability capabilities and aligns with its vision of eliminating data, tool, and team silos. The solution integrates New Relic’s native vulnerability signals and third party security signals into its purpose-built Telemetry Data Platform to monitor and manage all enterprise telemetry data in one place. Development, security, and operations teams can now use one connected experience to manage application security issues and avoid switching between siloed tools. All of this is available as part of New Relic’s simple and transparent consumption pricing with a promotional offer to democratize observability and security for all engineers.

Vulnerability Management provides visibility into an organization’s entire tech stack so they can identify vulnerabilities and protect their applications at every stage of the software development lifecycle.

“Maintaining application security is a critical part of the overall software developer workflow.” said New Relic CEO Bill Staples. “New Relic’s data-driven approach puts us in a unique position to provide security visibility across the entire enterprise tech stack.”

Key capabilities include:

- Zero configuration visibility: Instant and actionable security information with no additional configuration that brings continuous runtime software composition analysis (SCA) for risk assessment across the stack.

- New vulnerability testing capabilities in limited preview: Detect signatureless vulnerabilities in pre-production environments using IAST. The new capabilities leverage a patented deterministic technique to identify and provide automated vulnerability validation with proof of exploit.

- Open third party integrations: Unified security view across the stack and software lifecycle by adding security data with New Relic’s open ecosystem using built-in quickstarts, or from any custom source using New Relic’s security APIs.

- Automatic risk prioritization: Evaluate security risks across the software stack correlated with the service catalog.

- Alerting on newly discovered vulnerabilities: Notifications via Slack and Webhooks when new vulnerabilities are introduced in the code base.

Vulnerability Management is now generally available to all New Relic accounts in the US region, with general availability in the EU region planned for Feb 15, 2023.
