GitLab Acquires Security Companies Peach Tech and Fuzzit

DevOps company GitLab on Thursday announced the acquisition of software security testing firms Peach Tech and Fuzzit in an effort to expand its DevSecOps offering.

DevOps company GitLab on Thursday announced the acquisition of software security testing firms Peach Tech and Fuzzit in an effort to expand its DevSecOps offering.

Seattle-based Peach Tech has developed two major products: Peach Fuzzer, which helps developers find vulnerabilities in their code, and Peach API Security, which provides automated security testing for web APIs.

Fuzzit, which is based in Israel, provides a hosted fuzzing service that enables organizations to continuously test their code for bugs and vulnerabilities. Fuzzit is designed to integrate with the customer’s continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) workflow.

By acquiring the two companies, GitLab wants to offer a security solution that provides both coverage-guided and behavioral fuzz testing, and which makes it easier for development, operations and security teams to collaborate.

When the technology from Peach Tech and Fuzzit is integrated into GitLab’s platform, customers will benefit from fully integrated security testing, vulnerability management, and vulnerability remediation capabilities, eliminating the need for standalone products.

“Fully integrating Fuzzit will make GitLab the first security solution that provides continuous coverage-guided fuzz testing natively within the CI/CD pipeline,” said Yevgeny Pats, Fuzzit founder and CEO. “Fuzzit’s support for multiple coverage-guided fuzzers combined with its crash analysis and correlation technology will add an important capability to the DevSecOps for GitLab users.”

“Providing GitLab users with the best security testing tools is key to GitLab’s DevSecOps core mission,” said Michael Eddington, founder and CEO of Peach Tech. “The integration of Peach Tech’s technologies expands GitLab’s shift security left capabilities making the future of security and DevSecOps a reality today for all GitLab users.”
