New Relic Vulnerability Management will allow every engineer to contextualize and prioritize security risks at every stage of the software development lifecycle (SDLC)

FUTURESTACK—New Relic (NYSE: NEWR), the observability company, has introduced New Relic Vulnerability Management to help organizations detect and address security risks faster and with greater accuracy. With this release, every engineer on the software team, including security engineering teams, can use New Relic as the default platform for aggregating native and third-party security signals in the context of the entire software stack for a holistic approach to security and risk management. Engineering teams will be able to manage large-scale security risks and accelerate the delivery and operation of secure software. The new vulnerability management features will be available free to every user of the full platform with the Data Plus SKU, providing more value to every existing New Relic customer.

Securing modern software applications is a complex issue. Almost every software experience consists of thousands of components that can span multiple clouds and open source projects, often owned by multiple engineering teams and third parties. Every component has the potential to have security vulnerabilities. In order to detect all vulnerabilities, software teams have historically relied on multiple disparate security solutions, leading to a siled understanding of security risks that can create blind spots and increase business risk.

New Relic solves the same problem for DevOps use cases with its observability platform, collecting performance signals from multiple sources to provide full stack visibility. New Relic Vulnerability Management extends its open ecosystem approach and is the only observability platform on the market that allows customers to easily aggregate native vulnerability detection and legacy security data from existing security solutions. they are already using. As a result, engineering teams like DevOps, SecOps, NetOps, and SRE will have full visibility of all vulnerabilities in their software stack within minutes, so they can collectively understand and close security gaps, and ultimately protect their clients. The data.

“Minimizing security risks throughout the software development lifecycle is imperative, and we’re seeing increased pressure on DevOps to manage risks while ensuring they don’t become a hindrance at the pace of development. ‘innovation’, said Bill Staples, CEO of New Relic. “New Relic Vulnerability Management delivers more value to engineers who harness the power of observability with our platform approach, and accelerates our mission to help every engineer do their best with data, not opinion.”

By mapping and correlating technical components, engineers can contextualize many security signals in one place to monitor, debug, and secure the entire software stack and more effectively reduce overall risk. New Relic Vulnerability Management also helps engineering teams:

  • Seamlessly integrate third-party security tools with native vulnerability detection for unified security in context.

  • Break down silos and create a deeper understanding of security across organizations with strongly opinionated KPIs.

  • Prioritize security risks with entity correlation and topology analysis as part of the New Relic curated product experience.

  • Identify actions to remediate risks, integrate them directly into ticketing systems, and provide an audit trail of decisions and actions to integrate security workflows across the SDLC.

  • Unify and fix vulnerabilities during development as well as in pre-production and production environments.

According to Forrester Research, “Defend Against Cyberattacks and Emerging Threats,” August 2, 2021, “The goal is not to prevent an intrusion, the goal is to help the organization become a trusted business. Trusted companies do not allow multiple intrusions to occur, otherwise they will not remain trustworthy. This phase is not a state of failure, but an opportunity for transparency and improvement, in particular by showing customers and employees that they are the victims here. This is where observability for constant situational awareness, effective analytics, and expertise converge to find sophisticated and emerging threats that have bypassed previous steps.

New Relic Vulnerability Management is currently available as a limited preview in all regions as part of the New Relic platform, with general availability expected later this year. The new vulnerability management features will be available for free to every user of the full platform with the Data Plus SKU. For more information and the option to sign up for early access, visit
