Full coverage of API and application security testing requires the implementation of Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), Static Application Security Testing (SAST), and Software Composition Analysis (SCA). Historically, teams adopting DevSecOps by integrating automated security testing early in software delivery have been forced to choose between legacy platforms that offer all three types of tools or implement best-in-class point solutions. With this new partnership, engineering teams now have the ability to seamlessly deploy modern developer tools across all three test types.
“Software development has accelerated rapidly over the last decade and most security tools on the market have not kept up,” he said. joni klipper, CEO, StackHawk. “When code is pushed to production multiple times a day, security tools need to reveal vulnerabilities early in the development process so that the developer writes the code. By using StackHawk and Snyk together, teams get continuous security testing throughout the software delivery process. This means shipping better quality code without sacrificing delivery times or disrupting sprints.”
The companies are now formalizing their partnership after seeing significant momentum among joint customers throughout 2021. For example, breathe lifean insurtech startup, was looking for security tools that could keep up with its engineering team when it discovered complementary offerings from StackHawk and Snyk.
“We wanted security to be a shared responsibility across the organization. So we needed to give our team the tools and best practices so all teams could do it,” he said. Francois Allard, Director of Engineering, Breathe Life. “With StackHawk and Snyk, I can breathe more and the people on my team can breathe more. It allows us to be more confident in what we’re building and that we don’t have those obvious vulnerabilities.”
“Snyk seeks to empower the millions of global developers who are building our future to also be in control through the right tools to secure it,” he said. Carey Stanton, Senior Vice President of Global Business and Corporate Development, Snyk. “By partnering with the talented team at StackHawk, the most modern DevSecOps teams around the world will now benefit from easy implementation of tools designed for and by developers for DAST, as well as SAST and SCA.”
