An easy, fast way to improve your code security and health

What is our primary use case?

Up to this point, as an information security company, we had very limited visibility over the testing of the code. We have 25 Scrum teams working but we were only included in very specific projects where information security feedback was required and mandatory to be there. With the use of Contrast, including the evaluation we did, and the applications we have included in the system, we now have clear visibility of the code.

Pros and Cons

  • "In our most critical applications, we have a deep dive in the code evaluation, which was something we usually did with periodic vulnerability assessments, code reviews, etc. Now, we have real time access to it. It's something that has greatly enhanced our code's quality. We have actually embedded a KPI in regards to the improvement of our code shell. For example, Contrast provides a baseline where libraries and the usability of the code are evaluated, and they produce a score. We always aim to improve that score. On a quarterly basis, we have added this to our KPIs."
  • "Personalization of the board and how to make it appealing to an organization is something that could be done on their end. The reports could be adaptable to the customer's preferences."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend trying and buying it. This solution is something that everyone should try in order to enhance their security. It's a very easy, fast way to improve your code security and health. We do not use the solution’s OSS feature (through which you can look at third-party open-source software libraries) yet. We have not discussed that with our solutions architect, but it's something that we may use in the future when we have more applications onboard. At this point, we have a very specific path in order to raise the volume of those critical apps, then we will proceed to more features…
