Contrast Security Extends DevSecOps Platform With Revolutionary Technology to Find Vulnerabilities That Matter 10x Faster
Breakthrough pipeline-native code analysis security testing with Contrast Scan is now available with the Contrast Application Security Platform for complete coverage of the DevSecOps life cycle
LOS ALTOS, Calif., June 10, 2021 /CNW/ -- Contrast Security today announced the release of Contrast Scan that revolutionizes static application security testing (SAST) with pipeline-native static analysis to analyze code and detect vulnerabilities early on in the software development life cycle (SDLC). The release of Contrast Scan extends the DevSecOps capabilities of the Contrast Application Security Platform to the entire SDLC, empowering security teams to run scans up to 10x faster and remediate vulnerabilities up to 45x faster while meeting compliance requirements of an organization's security policy.
Incumbent legacy static approaches employ noisy rule sets to look for code quality issues. This outside-in approach generates immense volumes of security findings that become increasingly more time- and resource-intensive to manage. This is exacerbated due to the number of distracting false-positive alerts that kill productivity—upwards of 85% in many instances. For newer developer-friendly code scanning tools, application security shifts left too far, exacerbating the problem of false positives and leaving developers with no context on prioritization or how-to-fix guidance. In response, two-thirds of practitioners who rely on legacy static scanning indicate they are looking for a different approach to application security.
Contrast Scan aims to solve these challenges with a pipeline-native approach that achieves dramatic improvements in speed, accuracy, and developer experience, accelerating digital transformation by removing inefficiencies and roadblocks that slow release cycles. Onboarding with Contrast Scan is quick and easy—requiring zero configuration and literally three clicks to get findings. Further, as Contrast Scan is integrated as part of the Contrast Application Security Platform, organizations have a unified, developer-friendly view of vulnerabilities and attacks with harmonized security profiles across SAST, interactive application security testing (IAST), runtime protection and observability, and software composition analysis (SCA), all in one DevSecOps platform.
Key benefits of Contrast Scan include:
"Contrast Scan is a game changer for both application security and application development teams," said Steve Wilson, Chief Product Officer at Contrast Security. "It allows teams to get unprecedented observability into their applications' threat landscape early in the development life cycle—without all the noise of traditional static scanning tools. This means organizations' applications will remain more secure while enabling them to maintain the agility of their development teams."
