By leveraging Snyk’s security expertise and comprehensive vulnerability database to train DeepCode’s AI engine, the company will improve its accuracy even faster and can reduce false positives. Peter McKay, CEO of Snyk said,
“Traditional security tools are fatally flawed in today’s fast-paced development environment. They are too slow for developers to use in their daily work, and they result in too many false positives, often leading to wasted time or overlooked threats. DeepCode’s AI engine brings a level of speed and accuracy to Snyk’s technology platform that will give customers a level of security intelligence they’ve never had before. Additionally, we now can apply those capabilities to the proprietary code written by developers, extending the Snyk platform’s coverage for securing cloud native applications.”
