Single platform for assessing risk of applications

CloudDefense: DevSecOps made easy.

Data. The ultimate motivator for hackers. Hackers are constantly looking for ways to exploit application vulnerabilities and gain access to sensitive data. The average enterprise company deals with hundreds of applications and this volume, understandably, creates a nightmarish situation for SecOps personnel to constantly certify, pen-test, and validate the security posture of each application.

While the SecOps team is hard at work doing all that, developers become frustrated with the bottleneck. This is where CloudDefense helps. CloudDefense introduces a breakthrough platform for assessing the risk posture for the entire application stack and enables a more agile DevSecOps philosophy, which will help security move at the same pace as development. Finally, a way for CIO’s and CISO’s to better balance risk and development speed!

The risk for an application can only be assessed by evaluating the entire application stack, and CloudDefense enables Security and Compliance teams to get a bird's-eye view of overall application security risk, open source  vulnerabilities, and quickly investigate any legal compliance issues. It helps provides security scanning tools that can be easily integrated into your  existing software build system to identify application and container vulnerabilities.
