SEE CONTRAST ASSESS IN ACTION
The Contrast agent instruments an application with smart sensors to analyze code in real time from within the application. Contrast Assess then uses the intelligence gathered by the agent to identify and confirm vulnerabilities in code. This includes known (CVE) and unknown vulnerabilities.
“Applications that are built and deployed in a rapid cadence within the AWS
cloud offer us greater scalability, agility and resilience.
With Contrast automating application security into DevOps processes
helped GreenSky keep up with the demand to keep delivering
business value with increasing speed."
Dustin Butterworth, DevSecOps Engineer
Resolve security issues minutes after installation by integrating security into your workflow. Because Contrast agents monitor code and report from inside the application, developers can finally find and fix vulnerabilities without requiring security experts. That frees up security teams to focus on providing governance.
Contrast deploys an intelligent agent that instruments the application with smart sensors. The code is analyzed in real time from within the application. Instrumentation minimizes the false positives that slow down developers and security teams.
Resolve security issues minutes after
installation by integrating security into your toolchain. Contrast Assess integrates seamlessly into the software life cycle and into the toolsets that development and operations teams are already using, including native integration with ChatOps, ticketing systems and CI/CD tools, and a RESTful API.
In order to manage software inventory and identify aggregate risk in applications, and by leveraging the instrumentation insights of the Contrast agent, organizations can visualize application architecture, code trees, and message flow information. Contrast automatically generates simple diagrams that illustrate the application’s major architectural components. This information helps the developer quickly identify the meaning of a vulnerability that Contrast pinpoints and can form a starting point for threat modeling remediation.
The Contrast platform explains vulnerabilities to those that need to understand and fix them. Contrast’s innovative Security Trace format pinpoints exactly where a vulnerability appears in the code, and how it works. This enables developers to fix vulnerabilities easily without the need of security expertise.
Contrast Assess provides developers a mapping of the URL and routes of their software that are executed during the testing phase of the SDLC. This helps security teams increase confidence in the coverage of the Assess solution as well as developers identify the effectiveness of their overall testing practice.
