Progress Expands Collaboration with Microsoft to Accelerate Cloud Migration in India

Latest collaboration empowers Microsoft Azure customers to move to the cloud quickly, easily and securely with Chef DevSecOps automation tools

Progress, the trusted provider of infrastructure software, announced it is extending the coverage of Progress’ policy-based Chef DevSecOps portfolio to India. Through this expansion, Microsoft Azure customers and partners in the region will have increased access to all Progress Chef products, including Progress® Chef® InSpec® and recently released Progress® Chef® Cloud Security, enabling them to accelerate their cloud migration with continuous compliance and misconfigurations detection.

Organizations worldwide are embracing the cloud to modernize their legacy applications, create more resilient business infrastructures and support remote work. Cloud adoption was well underway before the COVID-19 pandemic, but the urgent changes to business operations and procedures have caused these plans to accelerate at an even greater pace. Nearly 70% of companies have advanced their cloud migration over the past 12 months.

While cloud migration is predisposed to embrace an agile development methodology enabled with DevOps, many organizations still leave themselves open to risk when migrating to the cloud by neglecting to embed security into their development operating model, architectural design and processes.

Chef—now under the leadership of Progress—has a rich history of collaboration with Microsoft to deliver automation tools that help organizations with cloud adoption. Working together, they have provided enterprises with the tools, skills and guidance to make IT innovation more rapid and frequent within Azure. A broad set of customers currently use Chef and Azure together to speed software development and easily manage infrastructure.

“The need for rapid, secure application development has resulted in a massive need for tools that can make the actual development and deployment of software easier and more seamless,” said Sundar Subramanian, EVP & GM DevOps, Progress. “When DevSecOps teams combine Chef and Microsoft Azure, they bring together two powerful tools to deliver a ‘cloud-first’ infrastructure quickly and securely.”

Progress has placed significant focus on building its security and compliance capabilities to make DevSecOps achievable for customers. The Chef DevSecOps portfolio bridges silos in global enterprises, enabling application, operations and security teams to work closely together to define everything—including compliance policies, infrastructure, and application delivery requirements—as code. Providing a common DevSecOps language that can be shared, scaled, and secured to improve the software development lifecycle helps teams accelerate their digital transformations and truly embrace the power of the cloud.
