Contrast Security Makes Enterprise-Class Code Security Testing Tools Available to All Developers for Free
CodeSec by Contrast Security makes code security for developers simple and efficient with quick scan times, market-leading accuracy, actionable results and seamless integration
June 2, 2022 — Los Altos, CA — Contrast Security (Contrast), the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure as they code, today announced the launch of CodeSec by Contrast Security (CodeSec), an easy to use, self-service, enterprise-tested application security solution available to all developers at no cost. With seamless sign-up, the fastest and most accurate scanner in the market, and immediate, actionable results, developers can start scanning code and serverless environments with CodeSec to go from zero to secure in less than five minutes.
"IDC research shows that when organizations empower developers with the right DevSecOps tools, the results are more secure applications, faster remediation, and developers taking ownership of application security," said Jim Mercer, Research Director of DevOps and DevSecOps at IDC. "It is encouraging to see Contrast Security offering some of its enterprise security software capabilities as a free self-service to developers to help them painlessly identify insecure code earlier in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)."
“We’re excited for developers to try CodeSec out today in their own environment to easily find and fix the flaws in their code earlier in the development process. It is our mission to get secure code moving — and we mean ALL code — which is why we've decided to give every developer access to our cutting-edge technology for free,” said Alan Naumann, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer at Contrast Security. “CodeSec is the fastest tool available in the market. But don’t just take our word, try it now!”
Contrast’s patented technology has been utilized to secure some of the world's leading software, healthcare and financial organizations for years. Now, developers will be able to harness the following benefits to drive innovation in their offerings with continuous security built into their deployment pipelines:
- Fastest and Most Accurate Scanner: Delivers up to 10x faster scan rates. Recognized as the fastest & most accurate Java scanner in the market.
- Immediate & Actionable Results: Scan code for traditional environments and serverless functions, find 70% more critical vulnerabilities and receive actionable results with 6x more true positives in seconds. Prioritizes vulnerabilities and provides actionable remediation guidance.
- From Start to Finish in Minutes: Frictionless and seamless signup process with GitHub or Google Account. Optionally, use a provided GitHub Action to automate the linkage to your GitHub pipeline – from zero to secure in less than five minutes. Enables developers to automate common workflows.
CodeSec is available to all developers today by authenticating with their existing GitHub or Google ID. To learn more about CodeSec, register for our upcoming live demo or visit us at RSAC 2022 (Booth #1055 in the Moscone South Expo Hall).
