Application Security Scanning in the Repository: Best Practices


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Sponsored by WHITESOURCE

On Demand

Historically, if organizations wanted to automate and enforce application security testing, the best place to do that was within CI/CD pipelines.  As time went on, we realized that while pipeline scanning has its place in securing applications, it doesn't scale as more and more plugins are needed and with that, the task of managing them becomes its own headache.

In addition, development teams don't typically work in pipelines.  They work with code repositories, commits, merges, and pull requests.  To get closer to being truly part of a development team's native workflow, application security needed to be in the code repository ecosystem.

Learn why scanning applications in the repository is the best way to secure your applications. From enforcing policies to providing feedback on demand, to preventing context switching, scanning in the repository is the most effective way to secure your applications and reduce your risk.
