Infamous software supply chain attacks, like SolarWinds, and federal regulations regarding software supply chain security have brought the topic to the forefront. According to Gartner, 45% of organizations globally will face this type of attack by 2025, which would be a 300% increase since 2021. Because most developers aren’t writing their code from scratch anymore, […]
Cloud-native, multi-cloud, and distributed environments and containerized, microservice-dependent applications rely on more interactions and interdependencies than ever before. One application could require hundreds of services to communicate flawlessly through a zero-trust environment.
Software Composition Analysis (SCA) is a technique used to evaluate software components and the security vulnerabilities that they may bring to an application. The process involves scanning and analyzing the source code and dependencies of an application to identify potential security issues.
The shift left with DevSecOps and modern data security focuses on protecting applications that run on containers, workloads, and microservices, which are foundational to cloud-native development. Cloud native application protection platforms (CNAPP) identify security issues and vulnerabilities earlier in the development cycle, accelerate their remediation, and offer consistent and continuous security and compliance monitoring.
Production code typically includes at least one security issue that prompts DevOps and DevSecOps teams to use application security testing methods. Two of the most widely used test automation approaches today are: Static application security testing (SAST), and dynamic application security testing (DAST). SAST and DAST focus on different aspects of the software development life […]
Security was always intended to be integral to DevOps rather than becoming a part of the final phase in the SDLC. Today’s focus on cloud-native apps, containers, open-source software, and microservices necessitate a cultural and practical transition to DevSecOps in continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD). Key to maximizing modern, streamlined development approaches is realizing the benefit of a “security-throughout” mindset, which is at the heart of integrating DevSecOps with CI/CD.
