Secure Code Warrior | June 30, 2022
Secure Code Warrior, the global developer-driven security leader, was recognized as one of four “Cool Vendors in Software Engineering: Enhancing Developer Productivity”, by GartnerⓇ. Secure Code Warrior is the only company on the list who focuses on developer-driven security enabled by an intuitive learning platform.
According to Gartner, the definition of a Cool Vendor is “a small company offering a technology or service that is innovative, impactful or intriguing." Gartner’s report notes that “Software engineers struggle to navigate complex code environments and to improve security of the systems they build while remaining productive. These Cool Vendors offer innovative solutions that help software engineering leaders boost developer productivity and mitigate security risks.”
Engineers’ time constraints are taking away focus from security and was recognized as a significant challenge by Gartner, which was also apparent from Secure Code Warrior’s recent survey, ‘The State of Developer-Driven Security’. The report revealed that 76% of respondents also agreed that good training in secure coding would actually improve productivity with fewer security tickets and rework to manage.
“At Secure Code Warrior, our solutions are driven by the need to ensure software security, while improving developer productivity. “When armed with the right security skills and contextual tools, development teams can easily mitigate risk and consistently ship secure code at speed, without compromising innovation. We are honored to be included in the new Gartner Cool Vendors in Software Engineering report, and see this recognition as a testament to our strategy and future business direction to enable developer-driven security.”

Geminus.ai | June 14, 2022
Geminus.AI announces the launch of its first product; a predictive intelligence platform that has the power to transform how companies design and operate industrial products and processes. The Geminus Platform fuses adaptive AI with physics using multi-fidelity modeling to enable creation of predictive models that uniquely combine high accuracy and speed, fast updating, and quantified uncertainty.
The product allows users to leverage key information on hand, such as low- and high-fidelity simulation, as well as real-world data, to efficiently create high performing predictive models that can be used for a variety of use cases including process design and control optimization.
"Lam’s interest in Geminus is driven by the potential to employ their hybrid modeling capability to better predict how our equipment would behave in high volume manufacturing and optimize designs accordingly.”
Faran Nouri, a director of Geminus and VP at Lam Research, an investor in Geminus
The investments an organization makes in modeling technology can be staggering and the risks associated with generating expensive, ineffective models are high. Compared to conventional physics-based alternatives, Geminus improves ROI with faster, more effective models, reducing the risks of bad decision making. It also provides another step toward enabling digital twins, with all the advantages they can offer.
“We believe that AI in its current form will struggle to deliver ROI in complex systems that cannot tolerate insufficient accuracy and dynamically change over time. For example, our models can power digital twins that predict the behavior of highly complex processes, and enable increased productivity, at a level that does not yet exist today,” said Greg Fallon, CEO of Geminus.ai.
Geminus exists to address the challenges of conventional AI, which includes heavy data requirements, long training times, and difficulty updating. The Geminus platform uses novel, physics-informed AI computing to translate constraints of the physical world inside resilient digital models. Furthermore, it requires only sparse data, and models are easily updated with the infusion of new data points. Data scientists and modeling engineers can use the platform to predict the behavior of complex systems and help them make informed decisions.
Cycle.io | August 04, 2022
Cycle.io, an up-and-coming low-ops application deployment platform, is thrilled to announce the support for NVIDIA’s data center-class line of GPUs. This enhancement of the platform enables developers to build GPU-accelerated applications which require a high level of computing power for scientific and engineering purposes:
One Platform With Batteries Included: Cycle provides all the necessary features development teams need to deploy, scale, and monitor everything from basic websites to complex SaaS and PaaS applications.
Multi-Cloud Container Orchestration: Enables developers to use the tools and technologies they’re already familiar with across multiple cloud providers in parallel.
Ultra-Current Infrastructure With Control: Organizations are able to maintain control and ownership of their infrastructure while the Cycle platform ensures that all servers are always current, with the latest updates being deployed on a semi-weekly basis.
Turnkey Team Collaboration: Easily add and remove developers from your team, and infrastructure, all with a few clicks. Cycle makes it easy for developers to gain observability over the individual components that make up today’s modern applications.
The launch of Cycle’s GPU support coincides with Vultr’s release of their new GPU-line of cloud servers, built upon the NVIDIA A100 GPU. Vultr, a leading independent provider of cloud infrastructure, provides both virtualized and bare-metal cloud infrastructure across 20 regions globally. Through the Cycle.io and Vultr partnership, developers can easily deploy performance-sensitive, GPU-dependent applications at a price point that makes sense for all use cases.
“Because of the additional power of a massively parallel architecture, GPUs make it possible to handle multiple tasks simultaneously, giving developers more compute power. There is a growing need for GPU parallel processing by developers of AI and Machine Learning big-data intensive solutions. With containers, this has been very difficult for the architect. But with our new partnership alongside Vultr, Cycle is making this simple to do for developers.”
Jake Warner, CEO, and Founder of Cycle.io.
“We greatly value our partnership with Cycle. Now that Vultr is offering VMs and bare metal accelerated with NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs, customers can use Cycle and Vultr together to easily run containers for deep learning, high-performance computing, and data analytics workloads,” said J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr’s parent company, Constant.
About Cycle Cycle is the all-in-one low-ops platform built for deploying, scaling, and monitoring your websites, backends, and APIs. With automatic platform updates, standardized deployments, a powerful API, and bottleneck crushing automation—the platform offers batteries included, and no DevOps team is required. Founded in 2015, the company is headquartered in Reno, NV.
