Managing Open-Source Security for Modern-Day DevOps

Is managing open-source software (OSS) with legacy tools causing more harm than good? This is often the case when it comes to outdated software composition analysis (SCA) tools that bury teams with false positives and require a series of tedious manual processes that waste valuable time. Tune in with us for a webinar that will explain how these SCA tools fall short when it comes to managing OSS risk, as well as how to untangle the confusion and find a security strategy that doesn’t stop DevOps in its tracks.

RASP for Attack Visibility, Web Application Observability, and Simple Scaling

Let’s face it—traditional web application firewalls (WAFs) simply can’t keep pace with the demands of digital transformation in DevOps environments. Applications are deployed faster and leaner than ever before and AppSec professionals need protection that moves beyond the traditional and simplistic perimeter defenses a WAF can offer. Join this webinar for a discussion about how RASP delivers an innovative application security alternative that adapts and reacts in real time. With RASP, teams gain the necessary attack visibility, application observability, and scalability they require.

Defining and Stopping the "Plague" of Application Security False Positives

False positives in application security are the kiss of death. They kill time, confidence, and ultimately, the application if they detract from security’s ability to focus on the critical vulnerabilities. Attend this webinar to get a better perspective on how pervasive the issue of false positives is, and the impact these erroneous alerts have on an organization—from the effects of alert fatigue to the impediments on a company’s digital transformation.
