AccuRev released for general availability today the first Git integration that seamlessly bridges the world of commercial tools and open source software configuration management.
AccuRev’s Kando, an enterprise security and compliance platform for Git, which was released in beta in January, complements the open source SCM tool with additional functionality, allowing organizations using Git to simultaneously leverage enterprise-level security and requirements traceability.
Kando is the first software development solution that enables Git development shops to add workflow, issue tracking, security, change requirements and other capabilities to the software development process, all while maintaining the flexibility and familiarity of Git environments.
Kando’s ground-breaking enterprise-level security and compliance capabilities allow its users to:
- Comply with enterprise-level regulations, by providing full audit and traceability
- Secure Git with access control capabilities, and support for enterprise authentication via LDAP and Microsoft Active Directory
- Visualize and manage development processes that use Git in AccuRev’s StreamBrowser™ environment
- Support Software Change and Configuration Management (SCCM) through change-based development with AccuRev Change Packages
“Our Kando Beta announcement in January had an overwhelmingly positive response, and it is clear that Git adoption has expanded well beyond the Linux community, into product development and IT,” said Lorne Cooper, AccuRev’s CEO. “Kando can solve many security and requirements traceability problems that enterprise organizations face when adopting Git, and really allows Git an opportunity to scale the development process across enterprise software development teams.”
During the development of Kando, AccuRev established the Kando Technical Advisory Board, comprised of representatives from several enterprise organizations with Git environments. To hear what they are saying, or to learn more about Kando, visit http://www.accurev.com/kando.
