ShiftLeft enables software developers and application security teams to radically reduce the attackability of their applications by providing near-instantaneous security feedback on software code during every pull request.

By analyzing application context and data flows in near real-time with industry-leading accuracy, ShiftLeft empowers developers and AppSec teams to find and fix the most serious vulnerabilities faster. Using its unique graph database that combines code attributes and analyzes actual attack paths based on real application architecture, ShiftLeft's platform scans for attack context and pathways typical of modern applications, across APIs, OSS, internal microservices, and first-party business logic code, and then provides detailed guidance on risk remediation within existing development workflows and tooling.

ShiftLeft CORE, a unified code security platform, combines the company's flagship NextGen Static Analysis (NG SAST), Intelligent Software Composition Analysis (SCA), and contextual security training through ShiftLeft Educate to provide developers and application security teams the fastest, most accurate, most relevant, and easiest to use automated application security and code analysis platform.

Webcast: How to Prioritize Security Risks and Fixes

by ShiftLeftApr 12, 2022

There are more “high-severity” vulnerabilities and threats than there are time and resources to fix them. How do you know what application vulnerabilities must be remediated right away, which can wait, and what you do to respond? Find out from the experts in this newly launched webinar.

E-Book: The Top 10 API Vulnerabilities

by ShiftLeftMar 14, 2022

You've probably heard of the OWASP top ten or the top ten vulnerabilities that threaten web applications. OWASP also periodically selects a list of top ten vulnerabilities that threaten APIs, called the OWASP API top ten.

In this eBook, we'll go through each of following vulnerabilities to understand how they happen, how to identify them, and how to prevent them:

  • Broken Object Level Authorization
  • Broken User Authentication
  • Excessive Data Exposure
  • Lack of Resources & Rate Limiting
  • Broken Function Level Authorization
  • Mass Assignment
  • Security Misconfiguration
  • Injection
  • Improper Assets Management
  • Insufficient Logging & Monitoring

Research Report: AppSec Shift Left Progress Report

by ShiftLeftMar 14, 2022

As digital transformation progresses across industries, a security transformation is following right behind it. Learn how companies have rebuilt their core DevSecOps testing processes to release more secure code at scale.

This report examines how ShiftLeft CORE's SAST and Intelligent SCA increase the speed of vulnerability scans and narrow the scope of work to highlight reachable issues. These lead to a more robust AppSec program:

  • More frequent scans
  • Fixes earlier in the software development life cycle
  • More security fixes overall

Whitepaper: Best Practices for Application Security in the Cloud

by ShiftLeftMar 14, 2022

The future of application security is in the cloud. Software development and application deployment continue to move from on-premise to various types of cloud environments. While the basics of application security (AppSec) carry over from on-premise, the cloud introduces new areas of complexity and a new set of requirements.

AppSec best practices for the cloud are somewhat different from standard AppSec best practices. Cloud applications tend to be more segmented into different services and are more likely to use other cloud services, delivered via API, to compose application functionality. AppSec teams may need to coordinate with security and ops teams from cloud service providers (CSPs) to ensure proper coverage and to adapt cloud-specific best practices. We'll cover AppSec cloud best practices and offer a basic framework on how to think about cloud AppSec.
