The U.S. federal government is developing applications and digital services as fast as it can to meet urgent needs. In addition to contending with accelerated deployment schedules, accelerated ATO, and demands for complex functionality, federal development teams must still perform security testing to ensure applications are free from vulnerabilities.
Application security has taken center stage as investigators get a fuller picture of the recent nation-sponsored attacks that exploited vulnerabilities in commercial vendors’ software to enter systems, steal data, demand ransom payments, and wreak havoc on federal, state, and local government organizations. With billions of dollars starting to flow, the motivation to target government applications will only increase.
In this issue brief, Checkmarx looks at how a mature, unified DevSecOps solution can enable organizations to realize the full value of “shifting left” by integrating and unifying toolsets to get full visibility into security issues across the development life cycle, automating key steps in the application security testing process and incorporating just-in-time training so developers can get the help they need when they need it.
