DEVSECOPS: we "Fortify" DevOps

 

”Public data on application security vulnerabilities shows that well-known types of vulnerabilities, many of which Application Security Testing (AST) can readily detect, are still commonly found in modern application design and code”.

- Gartner, How to Integrate Application Security Testing Into a Software Development Life Cycle, Michael Isbitski & Ramon Krikken, 26 December 2018

 

Application development today is fraught with challenges like speed, scalability and quality which have relegated security to a post development consideration. This has invariably let to today’s most prevalent security model; where application security testing (AST) is performed only in the final stages of the software development life cycle (SDLC) which is expensive, disruptive and inefficient. However, the acceleration of software build pipelines to deliver quick product releases and ever increasing use of potentially vulnerable open source software components mandate the need for an alternate solution.

Today’s DevOps environments demand a low distraction security model where security is integrated with application development. we45 has over a decade of software security experience in helping companies implement a comprehensive framework that allows them to achieve a credible increase in their secure product throughput without sacrificing scale or quality.
