Next-Generation Security Automation and Vulnerability Remediation Solution Ushers In New Era of DevSecOps – Security at the Velocity of DevOps
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cybric today announced the launch of its breakthrough Continuous Security-as-a-Service platform – the first to drive cybersecurity at the velocity of DevOps. This new platform is the first to make DevSecOps a reality by integrating application security testing into the Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline without impacting the productivity and speed of development teams. The release comes one month after Cybric closed $6.3 million in seed funding to launch this fully developed SaaS platform solution to the global marketplace.
Organizations are already relying on Cybric’s platform to dramatically improve their cybersecurity posture by enabling a proactive and continuous approach to application security scanning that works on-premises or in the cloud without impacting the production environment. This next-generation approach to cybersecurity automation and vulnerability remediation works by rapidly orchestrating exact replicas of an application environment and aggressively scanning for security vulnerabilities by containerizing and automating leading security solutions. It also applies predictive analytics to consolidate security scan results and provides proactive remediation plans through a single dashboard.
“Enterprise users expect new features to be continuously introduced and added to their applications, and while the DevOps culture is helping to make that happen, security is being left behind. When you look at how applications are being rolled-out or updated without proper testing, and then consider the growing sophistication and ‘always-on’ nature of cybercriminals, it’s a bad combination. There’s clearly a big need for continuous vulnerability management,” said Cybric CEO and founder Ernesto DiGiambattista. “That is why enterprises are coming to Cybric – because we can offer them true real-time vulnerability identification and proactive remediation to keep their assets more secure than ever before.”
The Cybric platform aligns application security with the DevOps culture, which to date have been fragmented and siloed, leaving applications and data in jeopardy while security teams grapple with post-production issues caused by an explosion of exploits and breaches. Today, only 20 percent of DevOps initiatives include security throughout the development cycle, according to HPE’s “Application Security and DevOps: What is the True State of Security in DevOps” study. With the rise of DevOps initiatives worldwide, enterprises now must tightly couple security with the systems development lifecycle (SDLC) and ensure that vulnerability scanning is continuous.
“By integrating continuous application security testing into the CI/CD pipeline without impacting the production environment, Cybric is enabling DevSecOps automation that moves security upstream,” said Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) Senior Analyst Doug Cahill. “Incorporating security into DevOps methodologies allows enterprises to successfully drive automated security testing across development and production applications, providing more consistent protection regardless of application and DevOps maturity with an adaptive platform that evolves with them.”
By implementing a strategy that enables security to operate at the speed of DevOps, enterprise organizations can:
- Automate the use of the security tool stack
- Analyze and prioritize all of the data to speed remediation
- Continuously monitor and remediate production applications
- Drive frictionless integration with security, development and DevOps processes
Research Supports Need for Better Security Automation and Vulnerability Remediation:
New research supports the need for a better approach to security automation and vulnerability remediation. The annual Ponemon Cost of Data Breach 2016 report from the Ponemon Institute found that the average cost of breaches at organizations has jumped past $4 million per incident, a 29 percent increase since 2013 and a 5 percent increase since last year. The study also found that average dwell time for breaches stands at 201 days with organizations requiring another 70 days to contain breaches once they’d been identified.
According to ESG, 22 percent of all cybersecurity jobs are going unfilled, and 51 percent of IT and information security professionalsindicate the increase in applications deployed on the network has made network security more difficult. In this challenging environment, an automated tool that proactively finds and remediates software vulnerabilities before they can become an issue, has become increasingly critical for organizations of all sizes.
