Synopsys to Showcase New Polaris Software Integrity Platform at Black Hat Asia
Synopsys, announced it will showcase its new Polaris Software Integrity Platform at Black Hat Asia in Singapore, March 26 to 29, 2019. The Polaris Software Integrity Platform brings the power of Synopsys Software Integrity products and services together into an integrated solution that enables security and development teams to build secure, high-quality software faster.
Synopsys’ Polaris Software Integrity Platform is a cloud-based platform that simplifies and enables comprehensive application security from developer to deployment through the combination of the Synopsys Code Sight IDE plugin and a central analysis server, which share the same powerful analysis engines; a broad set of integrations with popular development and operations tools; and reports, dashboards, and APIs that provide a consolidated view of application security risks. With the Polaris Software Integrity Platform, teams can detect and remediate vulnerabilities earlier in software development, integrate and automate comprehensive security analysis throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC), and manage application security risks holistically across their application portfolio.
“To effectively secure their applications against increasingly sophisticated attacks, organizations need to employ a combination of security testing techniques at multiple points within the SDLC,” said Andreas Kuehlmann, general manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. “But, to maintain the velocity required to be competitive, they also need application security solutions that can match the accelerating pace of software development, can scale, and can integrate seamlessly with their existing development infrastructure. Over the past several years, we have developed a portfolio of differentiated products and services that address the gamut of security testing needs in the market, and with the Polaris Software Integrity Platform we’re delivering on our vision to drive synergy and efficiency across these solutions.”
According to Gartner, “As DevOps gains popularity for rapid delivery and innovation of new IT-enabled capabilities, concerns about security and compliance increase. Security and risk management leaders must adapt security tools, processes and policies to the DevOps toolchain without slowing the development process.” (Gartner, Inc. “Integrating Security Into the DevSecOps Toolchain” by Mark Horvath, Neil MacDonald and Ayal Tirosh, October 3, 2017.)
