Getting Started with Seamless Application Security

Posted By Brent Jenkins, Thursday, June 13, 2019
Updated: Monday, June 10, 2019

In a time when applications are growing more complex and delivered faster than ever before, having a secure software development lifecycle run smooth seems like a pipedream, and it is. Having no bumps, twists and turns throughout the SDLC is not an achievable goal, but setting your organization up to get as close to seamless is. Here are a few important things to consider when building the roadmap for that journey.

  • Align yourself with a developed framework like OWASP SAMM
  • Identify your security champions
  • Develop your strategy and main processes before implementing
  • Define your initial scope:
    • Which applications and development teams to start with
    • Whether to use SAST, DAST, or both
    • Which integrations to leverage
    • What are the expected improvements in 12 months
    • Find the right tools for your organization

The culture, the people involved, and the right processes are most of the equation to a successful application security program. Those three things can get you 75% of the way there. The missing 25%, is the tools. Micro Focus Fortify provides a flexible end-to-end Seamless Application Security solution with measurable benefits such as:

  • 30x faster time to market
  • 95% fewer positives
  • 10-15x faster scans
  • 10x faster remediation
  • 2x more vulnerabilities found
