Application security gets harder every day. Every line of code written opens organizations to new vulnerabilities and breaches. Contrast is committed to supporting companies using Agile and DevOps by focusing product enhancements on integration and features that support digital transformation initiatives. Contrast enables DevOps teams to deliver continuous security by empowering developers to solve security problems early in the development lifecycle, integrating security into the DevOps pipeline and monitoring attacks the same way they monitor performance.
In a recent article, published in App Developer Magazine, Michael Haynes points out a few of the enhancements that Contrast has developed to help empower developers and integrate security into their toolchain. New integrations include: Jenkins, Jira, Support for Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services and Team Foundation Server, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Plug-In. Read details in the article "With DevOps Security Must Work Differently."
