A product is only as secure as its weakest link. That is why many talented security engineers and researchers recommend embedding security as early in the software development life cycle (SDLC) as possible, even from the very first line of code. Or better yet, even before the very first line of code, during the threat modeling and architecture phase. Smart people have been saying this for a very long time. So, why does product security still remain difficult?

Zero-day vulnerabilities are the surprise no developer wants to get. Because these security flaws are unknown to developers, they have zero days to prepare or mitigate the vulnerability before an exploit can occur. 62% of vulnerabilities were first exploited as zero-day vulnerabilities, so they are far more prevalent than we think. Even Google Chrome can attest to that after discovering a series of zero-day vulnerabilities that left its billions of users at risk in 2023.

If over 40 major banks can be the target of JavaScript injection attacks, let’s be honest – so can you. In 2023, a malware campaign using this attack method affected 50,000 user sessions across more than 40 financial institutions worldwide, leaving many dev teams in pure damage-control mode. 67.9% of professional developers use JavaScript more often than any other programming language. Its popularity is understandable, given its versatile and interactive capabilities.

As a company building a SaaS security product, our inherent culture is not only focused on building best of breed security products for our users, but also ensuring that our systems, practices and workflows are engineered to support a continuously evolving threat landscape, and to protect our users’ data. We’ve written about our design for tenant isolation for our serverless based architecture in the past, and practical methods to avoid data leakage between clients.

With the growing number of security frameworks, acronyms, scoring systems, benchmarks and more, it’s often hard to understand how each frameworks differs, how and where they come into play with regards to modern cloud native systems. More than anything, how do we actually operationalize these frameworks to derive engineering benefits?

When a new vulnerability is found, the race is on to either solve it or exploit it (depending on which side you’re on). But while attackers are getting faster, companies not so much. Dev teams take around 215 days to resolve a security vulnerability. The numbers are only marginally shorter when dealing with critical vulnerabilities. This delay is particularly concerning given the rise in zero-day exploits, where hackers take advantage of a security flaw before the organization even knows it exists.

DevSecOps pipelines arose in response to DevOps and CI/CD, which made it possible for developers to iteratively and continuously deliver small code changes, rather than massive deployments periodically. In theory, by integrating security into DevOps processes that enable continuous integration and delivery, developers could find and resolve security issues early in the software development lifecycle (SDLC), which is much faster than fixing security issues in production.

How many security tools do you use daily? If you’re like 35% of developers, it’s probably too many for your liking. Building a DevSecOps toolchain is key to making DevSecOps a success and reaping all of its benefits. However, knowing where to start with so many different tools and processes can be overwhelming. This article will explain the key DevSecOps tools and processes, while providing a guidance for building a software security program that works for you.

Infrastructure as code (IaC) provides an innovative approach to provisioning and managing cloud infrastructure through code, instead of doing it through manual processes. This foundational shift not only accelerates development cycles but also introduces new dimensions of risk that must be carefully managed. In this article, we'll delve into these challenges and explore strategies to secure IaC environments from potential vulnerabilities and threats.
