Stop Making Old Code Mistakes with Bridgecrew’s Smart Fixes

When Palo Alto Networks (PANW) acquired Bridgecrew, the aim was to enable “shift left” security, with Prisma Cloud becoming the first cloud security platform to deliver security across the full application lifecycle. Now, with the release of Smart Fixes, it’s easier to see why PANW paid about $156 million for Bridgecrew.

Bridgecrew’s main product is the open source, static code analysis Infrastructure as Code (IaC) scanner, Checkov. With it, you scan cloud infrastructure provisioned by Terraform, Terraform plan, CloudformationAWS SAMKubernetesDockerfileServerless, or ARM Templates. It then detects security and compliance misconfigurations using a graph-based approach.

Smart Fixes takes this forward to the next step by integrating with the Bridgecrew cloud security platform. There, it looks for IaC policy violations in your cloud code. It then offers suggestions for fixes.
