ActiveState Announces Plans for SaaS Platform, Leads with Open Source Solution for DevSecOps

Vancouver, BC, Jan 24, 2018 — ActiveState, a leader in providing commercial open source language distributions, announced today its plans for a SaaS Platform. The platform will fulfill enterprises’ unaddressed need for open source language solutions. The company leads the offering with the ability to verify open source Python applications at runtime; Python distros have security built into the language runtime. IT Security & DevSecOps teams benefit from automatic runtime verification.

The Python runtime solution helps security teams keep pace with their development cycles without compromising security. There is negligible impact to runtime performance and companies gain insight into the components of their open source programs from one central place.

“We’ve spent over 20 years delivering commercial open source languages to 97% of Fortune 1000 companies,” says Bart Copeland, CEO, ActiveState. “We know enterprises have standardized on open source to get to market faster. But enterprises wrestle with matching their business needs with their security goals. We eliminate this tension.”

The Python runtime solution is a fundamental building block of ActiveState’s SaaS platform. The platform enables enterprises to keep up with the pace of coder innovation and remove friction by streamlining the creation, configuration, control, integrity and trust of open source languages that power today’s applications and algorithms. ActiveState is providing early access to its Python runtime solution. Companies interested in the early access program can apply here.
