Today’s software development organizations are undergoing a dramatic transformation propelling them from monolithic applications to microservices and cloud migration, to name a few. These initiatives are carried out to gain a competitive edge through technology. However, the fallout with increased frequency and complexity is the massive volumes of security alerts and expanding the attack surface area with each passing day – ultimately driving up risk, exposure and vulnerabilities. The current approaches to application security are riddled with siloed data, which undermines overall visibility and promotes a lack of collaboration among teams with disconnected processes. In essence, the AppSec team, which is unfortunately outmanned by the developers at a ratio of 100:1, struggles to keep up with the development team determined to push its products out the door. This results in products being shipped without the security and rigor that the business demands.
Clearly, there is a need for a system that can empower developers and AppSec engineers to respond and resolve any security concerns that the organization may have—a need that is rightly fulfilled by ArmorCode.
ArmorCode offers an AppSecOps platform that reduces risk and exposure by minimizing vulnerability response times and streamlining both triage and remediation efforts. By bringing together both application and infrastructure security findings, ArmorCode provides unified vulnerability management and improves collaboration between AppSec and development teams. “The ArmorCode platform collects vulnerability data from AppSec tools integrated with the DevSecOps pipeline, infrastructure security tools, and even intelligence feeds. It then normalizes, de-duplicates and correlates the data to give actionable insights to the team. Resulting in faster triaging and remediation of application vulnerabilities,” says Nikhil Gupta, CEO and Co-founder, ArmorCode.
The platform centralizes all infrastructure and AppSec vulnerability data, leveraging 90+ out of the box integrations with security tools, including SCA, SAST, DAST, IaC and Pen Testing tools, as well as development and operations systems, such as Jira, GitLab and Jenkins. The platform then prioritizes the findings to provide AppSec and development teams the insight, actionable analytics and automation they need to focus on the issues that matter.
Ultimately, enabling organizations to design and scale effective and efficient AppSec programs across the entire organization while minimizing breaches.
The ArmorCode AppSecOps platform integrates AppSec posture management, DevSecOps workflow automation, unified vulnerability management, and continuous compliance into a single platform. The platform’s workflow engine automates manual and repetitive tasks, and improves collaboration between AppSec and Development teams with its extendable knowledge base - that elevates tribal knowledge within the organization to give developers the information they need to swiftly remediate the vulnerabilities. Lastly, by automating SLA monitoring across tools and across the teams, ArmorCode makes sure the entire organization is on the same page.
By managing the AppSec chaos, ArmorCode customers are able to mitigate risks without interfering with overall business deliverables. Additionally, organizations achieve AppSec operational efficiency, minimize team friction, and grow AppSec’s success across the business with the support of this comprehensive platform.
The ArmorCode platform collects data from a client’s DevSecOps pipeline, infrastructure, and even intelligence feeds, then aggregates the information and gives meaningful insights, resulting in faster triaging and remediation of application vulnerabilities
Today, the ArmorCode platform has 90+ integrations with security, development and operations tools and systems such as Snyk, Checkmarx, Tenable, Qualys, Slack, GitHub, JIRA and many others. Owing to its prolific and tactful approach to the relatively new AppSec industry, ArmorCode is able to coordinate and orchestrate all of the application security concerns that organizations face today.
As for the upcoming year, ArmorCode plans to expand their use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to further scale the impact of the AppSec team and improve developer productivity. “The platform will continue to provide the tools and guidance teams need to keep pace with DevSecOps and ensure AppSec success. By enabling organizations to scale AppSec effectiveness and impact by 10x or more, ArmorCode customers are able to ship secure software, and ship it,” concludes Gupta.
