CloudBees announced the acquisition of ReleaseIQ to expand the company’s DevSecOps capabilities, empowering customers with a low-code, end-to-end release orchestration and visibility solution.
Contrast Security announced its enhanced application programming interface (API) security capabilities within the Contrast Secure Code Platform.
It delivers the most secure way to build, test and protect APIs against vulnerabilities and zero days without sacrificing speed and time to market.
The platform also addresses the full attack surface of APIs, including attacks that target the code-level API and can bypass its gateway, as well as vulnerabilities in the source code.
The Contrast Secure Code Platform enables developers to:
- Know their APIs: Gain visibility into their complete inventory of APIs running in their environments that are relevant, in development and exposed.
- Write secure API code: Remediate as they code with runtime analysis during functional testing to find unknown vulnerabilities.
- Secure the API supply chain: Identify security gaps in the software supply chain as well as find vulnerabilities in active third-party libraries, frameworks and services.
- Protect APIs from being exploited: Protect against zero-day attacks from day one without tuning or reconfiguration and receive actionable results with 6x more true positives in seconds.
"While Contrast has been finding API vulnerabilities and protecting against API attacks for more than eight years, we're confident that our continued development of the Contrast Secure Code Platform will provide developers with the highest accuracy results and most effective defense for their APIs," said Jeff Williams, co-founder and CTO at Contrast Security. "There is a lot of noise and confusion in the market around protecting APIs and unfortunately traditional application security tools, such as SAST [static application security testing] and DAST [dynamic application security testing], lack the visibility and accuracy that developers need."
The Contrast Secure Code Platform allows engineering teams to streamline their continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines and embed security protection into production APIs. As a result, teams can effectively and efficiently build APIs without having to sacrifice security or miss critical development deadlines.
API Security through the Contrast Secure Code Platform is available to all developers today.
