Harness Becomes First Comprehensive DevSecOps & CI/CD Pipeline Solution With Integrated Security Testing Orchestration, Now Available to Government Agencies on U.S. Air Force Platform One


Harness®, the Modern Software Delivery Platform™ company, announced it has been accepted into Platform One, the U.S. Air Force’s (USAF) DevSecOps platform. Harness Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), and Security Testing Orchestration (STO) modules are now available on Platform One. The addition of these modules into Iron Bank, Platform One’s authorized container repository, brings to Platform One a CI solution that is at least four times faster than other CI solutions1, with test and cache intelligence; the industry’s first fully-automated Continuous Delivery solution; and a complete solution for security and pipeline governance via Open Policy Agent (OPA).

Platform One is a Department of Defense (DoD)-wide enterprise service to accelerate the development and deployment of DevSecOps applications. It is a “collection of approved, hardened Cloud Native Computer Foundation (CNCF)-compliant Kubernetes distributions, infrastructure as code playbooks, and hardened containers.”2 Now any U.S. government agency can use Harness solutions in their own DevSecOps environments or via Platform One—increasing speed-to-mission and reducing the burden on developer teams, without compromising security.
