Tech tales: Achieving PCI compliance with application security testing

In our new tech tales series, we discuss how Synopsys customers use our products and services to uncover security risks in their organization. Synopsys customers span every industry—from small to large enterprises across financial services, automotive, public sector, medical and healthcare, and much more. One thing they all have in common is building trust into their software.

Snyk and StackHawk form strategic alliance to equip app teams with modern, developer-first security testing

Application innovation, design, development, quality assurance, and security testing have changed dramatically over the past decade. Engineering teams are leveraging agile development processes, modern cloud platforms, reusable microservices, and extensible APIs, enabling them to shift to more frequent deployments more easily.

Synopsys named a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing for the sixth year

In the 2022 Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM for Application Security Testing, Synopsys placed highest and farthest right for the fourth consecutive year for our Ability to Execute and our Completeness of Vision.

Modernizing SAST rules maintenance to catch vulnerabilities faster

Snyk Code separates itself from the majority of static code analysis tools by generating and maintaining rule sets for its users — helping them combat common and newly discovered threats. A recent Hub article described a new Javascript vulnerability called prototype pollution, which allows attackers to modify, or “pollute”, a Javascript object prototype and execute a variety of malicious actions.

Bearer in your CI/CD with our GitHub Action

Bearer is a Static Application Security Testing (SAST) tool that enables security and engineering teams to identify and mitigate data security risks throughout the software development lifecycle. It integrates with Source Code Management (SCM) software (see Git repository integrations for more details) to scan your code repositories, discover and classify data flows, and detect gaps with your data security policy.

How To Set A Benchmark Of False Positives With SAST Tools

Many Static Application Security Testing (SAST) tools struggle with false positives. They often report that a vulnerability is present, while, in reality, it does not exist. This inaccuracy weighs down the engineering team, as they spend productive hours triaging the false alarms. By setting a benchmark of false positives — a limit, above which is unacceptable — you can establish a point of reference or standard against which to measure the efficacy of your SAST tool.

Best SAST Tools: Top 7 Solutions Compared

Static application security testing (SAST) tools automatically scan the source code of an application. The goal is to identify vulnerabilities before deployment. SAST tools perform white-box testing, which involves analyzing the code based on inside knowledge of the application. SAST offers granularity in detecting vulnerabilities, providing an assessment down to the line of code.
