Snyk natively integrates into Jira Software for true DevSecOps functionality

Recognizing that no company wants to be associated with an application that gets hacked, Atlassian and Snyk are collaborating to provide an easy path to vulnerability management for Jira Software users.

It adds up to a stressful time not just for the developer but for many of the key stakeholders as well: the scrum master, Jira admin, project manager, engineering lead, delivery and operations teams, product manager, and business lead. 

As security threats become more sophisticated, it is increasingly necessary to integrate security into the software development process and adopt DevSecOps. With Snyk powering new security capabilities in Jira Software Cloud, software teams are able to address security issues more effectively and earlier. This means Jira admins can now have the security controls and automated testing tools development teams needed to better protect the applications you build from unwelcomed risk. 

Introducing Snyk Security in Jira Cloud 

Snyk Security in Jira Software is available in the Atlassian Marketplace enabling security and development teams to collaborate in a single unified pane, by bringing vulnerabilities into the context of developer sprints.

Jira users can prioritize issues, minimize errors, and align security work with production sprints to improve security in  code, open source dependencies, containers, and infrastructure as code.  Snyk’s scanning embeds directly within the Jira UI to facilitate conversations about your security posture as it surfaces vulnerability information in a shared space where teams manage their work.

Once Jira admins enable Snyk Security in Jira Cloud, get your developer and security teams access to your Snyk org so that they can find and fix any vulnerability issues. 

  1. Ensure that your Jira users have been notified that Snyk has been enabled in Jira 
  2. Invite your team members to Snyk so they can start scanning for vulnerabilities

Snyk’s comprehensive vulnerability data

Snyk’s security intelligence represents the most comprehensive, timely, accurate and actionable vulnerability data in the industry. The Snyk vulnerability database combines public sources, data from the developer community, proprietary expert research, machine learning, and human-in-the-loop AI.

Leveraging the Snyk database, developers and security teams can introduce and apply their unique perspective and skills, coupled with shared tooling, meaningful information, and streamlined automation to ensure fast and secure development.  


Value of Snyk for developers: 


  • Quickly find vulnerabilities without leaving the Jira UI.

  • Leverage your existing development environment and automatically embed security into your DevOps processes.

  • Build, test, and release secure software faster and more reliably.

  • When you can tackle issues as they arise, in the tools you use every day, security scales to handle the mountain of issues on your plate.


Value of Snyk for security leaders: 

  • Instill a culture of collaboration and gain the trust of the engineering team.

  • Improve visibility into the security actions taken by developers, and provide guidance directly through the tools they are already using.
