JFrog acquires Upswift for edge-based DevOps expansion

Upswift's tool will extend JFrog's DevOps pipeline to IoT devices

DevOps software company JFrog has acquired Israel-based Upswift, a firm that makes software to manage internet of things (IoT) devices. JFrog will use Upswift's software to extend its DevOps management capabilities to edge devices. 

The Upswift acquisition brings new capabilities to JFrog customers, including dependency scanning, CI/CD, artifact management, and device software updates. It will also help to make connected devices more secure, JFrog said. IoT security continues to be a problem for enterprises. 

The integrated platform will enable developers to manage the software development pipeline for IoT devices from coding through deployment at the edge. It will also track software releases, including incremental updates, and will include the ability to update large numbers of devices, which are common in edge and IoT environments. 

Developers and engineers will be able to monitor device health in real time and access individual IoT devices from a browser or via an application programming interface (API) for remote control purposes. 

JFrog offers its DevOps management platform as a self-managed service or as a software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based cloud system. It uses separate components, including the VCS code repository, the Artifactory software package manager, the XRay security and compliance monitoring system, and a container registry. It also features a distribution system and a software pipeline manager.

JFrog plans to integrate Upswift's platform into its own over time. It brings other features including a software container management system, data and resource monitoring for edge devices, hardware log management, and a map administrators can use to see edge and IoT device locations. 

Upswift, which uses device-side agents for its edge and IoT-based management, claims it can connect Linux hardware to its management system in under a minute. 

Edge computing is a buoyant market. IDC has predicted a 43.5% growth in managed edge services this year alone.
