MacStadium announced the launch of its online community to deepen the connections of application developers through knowledge sharing and collaboration.
Veracode announced product innovations to enhance the developer experience. The new features integrate security into the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and drive adoption of application security techniques in the environments where developers work.
Veracode’s latest innovations redefine the approach to securing cloud-native applications throughout the SDLC, reinforcing the company’s commitment to providing a unified platform for comprehensive security risk management.
Brian Roche, Chief Product Officer at Veracode said, “Developers face immense pressure to rapidly deliver innovations, often resorting to mechanisms such as LLMs and open source to expedite the process. Unfortunately, this approach can result in insecure code consumption and solutions that exacerbate security risks rather than mitigate them. The situation is compounded by existing security tools that add complexity rather than simplifying the process for developers.
Veracode addresses this challenge by providing a unified platform that not only monitors and mitigates risk but also streamlines developer workflows across repositories, IDEs, and the cloud. By delivering developer-friendly security tools, we empower organizations to deliver secure software faster, eliminating the need to compromise between security and speed.”
Veracode’s DAST Essentials is an agile solution that empowers developers and security teams to address risk easily at speed and scale. Veracode DAST Essentials scans and tests multiple web applications and APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) simultaneously. Veracode’s State of Software Security research found 80 percent of web applications have critical vulnerabilities that can only be identified through dynamic scanning. This emphasizes the critical role DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing) plays in a robust application security program, ensuring organizations can address exploitable vulnerabilities in cloud-native software accurately and swiftly.
The Veracode GitHub App facilitates developer adoption, allowing application security teams to configure once and seamlessly onboard developers. This integration enables developers to fix code quickly in the environments where they work with a single tool for static, software composition analysis (SCA), and container security scanning. The result is a faster, frictionless development process that doesn’t compromise security.
The Veracode GitHub App simplifies this by providing developers with frustration-free scan results in their preferred environment. DevOps teams can easily onboard repositories without manual setup, maintaining development velocity and streamlining scan processes. With the ability to standardize scan configurations across hundreds of repositories using a single click, DevOps teams can reduce friction and integrate cloud-native security much earlier in the development cycle.
Roche closed, “Ensuring the security of cloud-native applications has never been more crucial. Developers are assembling code just as much as they’re writing it, meaning even the most meticulously built applications are susceptible to threat. To protect the software supply chain, modern application development demands a paradigm shift in security practices. As distributed cloud app development methods take hold, these latest product innovations demonstrate Veracode is embracing the dynamic nature of the cloud-native landscape to lead the charge in securing our digital future."
