GitLab has launched a sign-on automation service to support common access card authentication.
The service is designed to reduce time spent on logging into GitLab’s issue tracker and helps users develop and deliver security-set software at faster rates, the company said Tuesday.
In-Q-Tel, a strategic investor for intelligence and defense efforts, supports GitLab’s platform and newly launched federal services subsidiary.
George Hoyem, managing partner at IQT, said that GitLab’s platform is geared to help the intelligence community manage an enterprise-wide DevOps lifecycle.
“While there“™s already wide-scale usage of GitLab within the government, we look forward to helping GitLab understand and deliver the right features for the IC to enable a full DevSecOps lifecycle with the right operational and security capabilities,” he said.
GitLab intends to further develop new technologies in support of the government, with plans to release a new version of the firm’s platform that would allow for simplified identity and access management.
