Which AppSec tools work where in the SDLC? Should you use containers or develop code in the cloud? If you’re a CISO, how does DevSecOps affect software security and help provide tangible savings in lead times to prevent a major exploit? How should you evaluate and select application security tools, and how should you partner with your development teams?

Starting with a basic introduction to common terminology (waterfall, agile, DevOps, DevSecOps), this white paper explains the types of development workflows and tools that developers need to stay productive, while also ensuring that their code is secure. We describe different types of AppSec tools (SAST, DAST, IAST) along with guidance on when and why to use each tool versus the others.

Organizations need to empower their developers by giving them tools and establishing workflows that make delivering secure, high-quality software faster and more efficient.

We also provide a short tutorial on what to look for in an application security tool. What are the essential features if you’re a head of development, a DevOps lead, or a CISO? What do you need in order to be successful at your primary job, while also ensuring that your applications are secure from cyber attacks and data breaches?

Finally, we conclude with a short introduction to the Synopsys Polaris Software Integrity Platform and how this new SaaS platform helps organizations increase their software velocity to meet rapidly changing business needs. To do this, organizations need to empower their developers by giving them tools and establishing workflows that make delivering secure, high-quality software faster and more efficient.
