Fermyon First to Deliver Secure-By-Default Software Supply Chain for Serverless Apps
Fermyon Technologies, the serverless WebAssembly company, today announced Fermyon Spin 2.0, which implements the new WebAssembly Component Model to give developers unmatched security and productivity. With the integration of the WebAssembly (Wasm) Component Model, Spin 2.0 allows developers to implement software components written in multiple languages; makes available untrusted, third-party components that are, by definition, secure; and offers secure-by-default software supply chains.
With increasing pressure to deliver software faster than ever before and vulnerabilities in open source libraries on the rise, it is estimated that software supply chain attacks have increased 742% over the past three years (source: Security Week, Cyber Insights 2023). By leveraging the component model and the sandbox nature of Wasm, Spin 2.0 dramatically reduces attack surfaces and vectors, even those which import/export interfaces. Now, Spin offers security-by-default for developers, giving peace of mind regardless of what components are being utilized.
Spin 2.0 Key Benefits and Features:
Fermyon is the first company to implement the WebAssembly Component Model in an open source product as well as its own hosted cloud offering, Fermyon Cloud, thus increasing the security profile of Fermyon Cloud and any serverless application running on it.
"At Fermyon we are defining the next wave of cloud computing, and we're using WebAssembly to do it. As seasoned open source leaders, the Fermyon team has taken an active role in creating the standards under W3C and in writing the reference implementations. Spin 2.0 builds upon these standards to provide a developer-oriented production-grade serverless platform. Spin 2.0 and the component model create another giant leap towards this vision for all developers and development organizations," said Matt Butcher, co-founder and CEO of Fermyon.
Fermyon Spin 2.0 is now available to clone or download at GitHub. Spin is one of the fastest open source projects to reach 4,100+ stars and has been downloaded or cloned more than 100,000 times. With one command ("spin deploy") any Spin application is immediately deployed to Fermyon Cloud.
Fermyon will be showcasing Fermyon Spin 2.0 at the KubeCon North America conference in Chicago November 6-9.
