Snyk and Datadog Enable Developers to Precisely Identify and Prioritize Code-Level Security Fixes in Production Applications
Snyk integration helps Datadog’s Continuous Profiler users address risk and implement automated DevSecOps practices
Cloud native application security company Snyk announced an integration with Datadog that helps developers accurately flag and prioritize security vulnerabilities in their production workloads with live traffic.
With Snyk surfacing the most timely and comprehensive open source vulnerability information directly within the Datadog user interface, developers can find, prioritize and resolve security vulnerabilities before they become an issue. With a free Snyk account, runtime vulnerability analysis is available out-of-the-box and at no additional cost to Datadog’s Continuous Profiler customers. This new functionality minimizes time spent identifying threats and nurtures automated DevSecOps practices.
“Datadog’s Continuous Profiler provides insights into the performance of real-world production code. Combining Datadog visibility in product traffic with Snyk’s trusted, curated vulnerability data provides a new lens that will enable developers to make more accurate and informed security decisions,” said Ilan Rabinovitch, Vice President, Product & Community, Datadog.
Through the partnership, within Datadog’s UI, profiling customers will be able to see a snapshot of the vulnerabilities present in their application, and calculate the best remediation by reviewing how often those methods are invoked.

“By combining Snyk’s enriched vulnerability metadata with Datadog’s profiling solution, for the first time developers can precisely pinpoint when an application calls vulnerable code to better prioritize remediation efforts,” said Peter McKay, CEO, Snyk. “Our new alliance will allow developers to proactively and accurately address vulnerabilities and implement security fixes in live applications.”
Datadog is a gold sponsor of Snyk’s user conference SnykCon 2020, presenting “Do You Accept Risk? Dynamic Risk Metrics in Your Environment.”
Snyk’s database includes automated machine learning and expert analysis maintained by a dedicated Snyk research team. Known for its robust, enriched information, Snyk Intel is the vulnerability database of choice for many of the world’s large global technology and security companies, including Docker, the Linux Foundation, Rapid7, Red Hat, Trend Micro and many others.
