Integrate KICS using JIT’s DevSecOps Orchestration platform to find security vulnerabilities, compliance issues, and infrastructure misconfigurations in IaC solutions and OpenAPI 3.0 specifications.
JIT ensures frictionless integration of KICS into your CI.
JIT and KICS are a must-have pairing for any cloud native project.
KICS is a 100% open source tool for CI/CD workflows.
KICS automates IaC security scanning, and JIT automates KICS
As you scale your business, developers get busier and vulnerabilities can spread quickly across your environment. In JIT’s centralized dashboard, you can get continuous visibility over your entire security posture including the state of your IaC security (as per KICS’ findings and recommendations). KICS detects vulnerabilities, compliance issues, and infrastructure misconfigurations to prevent and detect malicious IaC files. The popular and powerful KICS platform enables you to automatically enforce IaC scanning and API security standards in your existing software development life cycle, and extend these practices to new applications and IaC resources as you grow. Together, JIT and KICS provide a fast solution to IaC security scanning while simplifying the developer experience, helping improve team efficiency and avoid developer burnout.
In JIT’s platform, you can manage open source security tools like KICS via the centralized dashboard and enable static code analysis of IaC from day 0. First, you can define a KICS security plan and standardization practices. Then, select the repositories and IaC solutions that KICS will scan and query for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations as it automatically parses widely used IaC files of any type.
Your developers don’t need to slow down to guarantee secure IaC. JIT helps you automatically enforce IaC security by expressing DevSecOps as a declarative security plan, not just as a set of security guidelines in your governance policies. With KICS’ new auto scanning VSCode plugin, you can also scan IaC through JIT while you edit.
Choose the security tools you need (and want) to secure your tech stack, and allow JIT to unify the execution and give you visibility across all layers of your cloud application, including IDE (with KICS!), code, pipeline, and cloud. JIT only runs KICS scans on the last pull request, automatically incorporating IaC security scanning into your existing workflows without hindering developer velocity.
Receive live KICS updates in JIT’s centralized platform to stay on top of the state of your IaC security. JIT’s auto-remediation capabilities and fix-1st approach help developers catch risks before they become a problem, so your team can maintain a consistent and simple approach to delegation, reporting, and monitoring.
With over 1000+ ready-to-use queries, KICS detects a wide range of vulnerabilities for cloud providers like AWS, GCP, and Azure. You can easily edit, extend, and add to the 2400+ fully customizable queries available with KICS.
Embrace the power of the crowd with KICS’s 100% open source tool. Explore the extensive documentation and community forums for support with any KICS-related questions. You can also contribute to KICS alongside thousands of developers.
The robust KICS architecture supports new and popular IaC solutions, so you can easily scale operations like development and deployment. With JIT and KICS, you can make IaC security scanning a priority without adding to developers’ workload.
KICS assesses your overall API design as well as securing individual IaC files. Identify risks in path definition, transport encryption, and more so you can continuously review your APIs and set API security standards for your organization.
Integrate KICS using JIT and prevent IaC files from spreading security vulnerabilities across your environment. Easily adjust your security plan in JIT’s dashboard to extend IaC scanning capabilities to new applications and resources.
Automate IaC security for good with KICS’ robust static code analysis and JIT’s developer-friendly orchestration tool. JIT integrates KICS’ SAST capabilities for IaC into your CI/CD so it automatically runs for every new pull request, therefore removing avoidable product roadblocks like human error, complex development environments, and insufficient security practice knowledge.
In the JIT dashboard, you can quickly view KICS’ findings and security requirements and automatically remediate KICS queries like access control, encryption, secrets management, and more. KICS has over extensible 2400 fully customizable queries available, and you can continuously monitor them all in JIT’s frictionless platform.
