Building modern DevOps pipelines relies on using best-in-class developer tools, with a deep focus on providing real actionable developer value, and gluing them together. At Cloudsmith we believe good old package management needs a serious refresh, with a name befitting its focus on DevSecOps. We call it Continuous Packaging.

Today, building automation and security into software supply chains requires packaging source code, dependencies, and containers into logical, versioned units. Shift-Left security is not enough. Every organization needs a reliable Package Delivery Network, a single pane of glass through which you can see the flow of packages providing much-needed isolation and provenance. Two concepts we’ll outline as vital for managing secure distribution and deployments.
