Pipeline-Native Static Analysis: Why It Is The Future of SAST

Sep 07, 2021

55% of developers admit to skipping security scans to meet release deadlines.

Legacy tools for static application security testing (SAST) were not designed for the nature of modern applications nor the speed of today's continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines. Traditional scanning approaches are slow, inaccurate, and require analysis by security teams before remediation can begin. As such, they put many organizations in a position of choosing either development speed or security.

Instead, organizations need modern scan-based testing—a pipeline-native approach that integrates with DevOps/Agile workflows, tooling, and systems. Read this eBook to discover what a pipeline-native static analysis approach looks like and how it empowers developers and security teams speed release cycles while improving efficiencies.
