Developer ecosystem integrations. In addition to providing cloud security posture visibility and automated remediations, Bridgecrew prevents cloud misconfigurations through CI/CD pipeline integrations with GitHub Actions, CircleCI, and Jenkins. Teams get cloud security monitoring as part of every build, ensuring that misconfigurations aren't unknowingly deployed. Ecosystem integrations with Jira, Splunk, and Slack provide real-time alerts where developers need them. Open-source software is key to Bridgecrew's platform and its mission to advance the codified cloud security movement.

Bridgecrew’s developer-first solution allows DevOps and engineering teams to save critical time and money as they address these ongoing security tasks with just the click of a button.


Traditional cloud security tools merely detect gaps in infrastructure security, pushing open issues and violations to DevOps and engineering teams to resolve. This requirement of manual remediation means issues take days or weeks to resolve, leaving a company’s infrastructure vulnerable. It’s also become the main deterrent for companies implementing cloud security and migrating to the cloud. The automated technology is also well-suited for the age of COVID-19 and today’s volatile market environment in which many organizations are trying to automate security and DevOps processes to cut costs and become significantly more efficient.
