Application Security Automation
Protect – SECURITY ENGINEERING, BLUE TEAM
Organizations of all sizes benefit from introducing automated security practices into their Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Techniques such as Static and Dynamic Application Security Testing (SAST/DAST) identify issues quickly and prevent vulnerabilities from appearing in production. Automating security scans by including them in places like your continuous integration (CI) pipeline or pre-commit hooks allows developers to get early feedback on the security of their code changes, and it reduces the time and effort needed for dedicated security personnel to identify issues.
Not only does this find issues, but we can also integrate those findings into an issue tracker of your choice and provide cross-training to teams on how to manage, prioritize, and remediate security issues. When the development team begins to ask questions, which they inevitably will, we provide demonstrations on how to confirm exploitability or quickly identify false positives. This is the first step toward an evidence-based, data-driven application security program.
