Inclusion of application validation right from product inception is a critical element of Agile product development. Integrating different test scenarios within the development pipeline leads to an increase in the overall quality and functionality of the code. However, these tests are largely focused on functional or performance aspects of an application. Security Testing (as we know it) is commonly dependent only on an end-of-the-chain (penetration testing) activity, which negates benefits of Agile development. The solution is in having a low-distraction and scalable application testing gate built upon existing product development tooling, that truly works on the “Find Early, Fix Early” model.
we45 helps you in extending the power of your existing development, release management and security infrastructure components to build an Application Tooling framework that can be plugged within deployment environments to perform security checks right from when the code is checked in. The core of the solution involved bringing together your current commercial DAST / SAST tool-sets alongside their relevant open-source counterparts within the Continuous Integration pipeline. This brings in the much needed “Kitchen Sink” effect derived from the force-multiplier result of using multiple tools run with appropriate scan policies.
