Saltworks Partners with Secure Code Warrior
March 22, 2021

Saltworks announced a partnership with Secure Code Warrior to elevate the importance and accessibility of secure code education and skills development.

By helping developers write secure code from the start, development teams can ship quality code faster, avoiding errors and reducing risks, and increase skills adoption. The partnership aligns with Saltworks’ strategy to collaborate with organizations that support its mission to build progressive AppSec programs for global enterprises.

While secure coding principles can be driven from anywhere within an organization, every level of the development team (internally for the business and externally with customers) must eliminate vulnerabilities. Given the software industry’s increased focus on integrating AppSec into DevOps processes (i.e., DevSecOps), the Secure Code Warrior partnership is a proof point of Saltworks’ holistic approach that empowers developers to author error-free code and deliver secure applications from policy to production.

“Even the smallest programming mistake can cause a security breakdown that negatively affects deployment and application success, which can lead to compromised intellectual property and data, and loss of competitive advantage,” said Dennis Hurst, Founder and President of Saltworks. “Not only does Secure Code Warrior take a human-led approach in teaching and motivating developers to code securely, but it also drives training adoption throughout the development organization by providing positive skills-based pathways for developers in the language and framework of their choice. Both are proven to increase developer speed, accuracy and productivity.”

Whether development teams are local, hybrid or crowdsourced, software innovation is growing faster than ever before, as are the increased go-to-market and cyberthreat pressures that come along with rapid application development. It’s critical that developers, regardless of geolocation, have the skills and tools to create clean, quality code.

“Saltworks understands that code is a foundational element of all software developed and without security principles ingrained from the beginning, companies put themselves at risk for security breach and application failure,” said Stephen Allor, Global Head of Partners at Secure Code Warrior. “By making secure coding a positive and engaging experience for developers as they increase software security skills, Secure Code Warrior’s proven approach mitigates risk by embedding a secure code mindset throughout the development process—ultimately making coding and security top priorities.”

“While the onus is on companies to hold code to the highest caliber, they can’t assume all developers have the know-how to make it so,” continued Hurst. “Providing ongoing training opportunities as part of secure code objectives and tying AppSec priorities to performance metrics make a difference in motivation, performance and security integration. It also enables programmers to gain an equal knowledge base that fuels an environment where they spend more time writing and deploying good code than fixing errors.”
