Synopsys has entered into collaboration agreements with NowSecure and Secure Code Warrior to expand its application security testing solutions. These collaborations introduce advanced offerings for mobile application security testing and developer security training, enhancing Synopsys’ capability to provide comprehensive application security solutions and address evolving cybersecurity threats.
10 August 2023 – Synopsys, Inc, a leading provider of software integrity solutions, has announced two significant collaboration agreements with mobile security and privacy experts NowSecure, and developer-driven security platform provider Secure Code Warrior. These collaborations are set to enhance Synopsys’ Software Integrity Group’s extensive portfolio of application security testing (AST) solutions. The resulting offerings, “Synopsys Mobile Application Security Testing powered by NowSecure” and “Synopsys Developer Security Training powered by Secure Code Warrior,” are now globally available, demonstrating Synopsys’ commitment to staying at the forefront of the ever-evolving threat landscape.
The partnership with NowSecure introduces an automated continuous mobile application security testing (MAST) solution, finely tailored for securing the intricate infrastructure of modern mobile software development lifecycles (SDLCs). This solution significantly complements Synopsys’ existing managed MAST services, providing unmatched testing coverage through rapid, automated, and language-agnostic static, dynamic, interactive, and API security testing of Android and iOS binaries. Furthermore, the Mobile Application Security Testing offering empowers development and security teams to scrutinize a mobile application’s components, encompassing open-source components, third-party software development kits (SDKs), and transitive dependencies. It also facilitates the integration of automated security testing into continuous integration and continuous delivery/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines.
Alan Snyder, CEO of NowSecure, expressed excitement about the partnership’s potential to provide a comprehensive application security solution suite. Given the dominance of mobile apps in today’s global economy, NowSecure’s decade-long expertise in mobile security stands to make a significant impact in covering all dimensions of application security.
The collaboration with Secure Code Warrior gives rise to “Synopsys Developer Security Training,” a robust enterprise-grade agile learning platform designed to equip developers with security capabilities while allowing security leaders to standardize security practices across their organizations. Boasting over 8,000 learning experiences spanning self-paced educational resources, interactive challenges simulating real-world scenarios, and step-by-step walkthroughs, Developer Security Training offers a practical approach to training modern software development and engineering teams. The platform’s native integration with Synopsys Coverity®, Synopsys Seeker®, and the recently launched Software Risk Manager delivers a comprehensive solution for mitigating and preventing security issues throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC) directly from integrated development environments (IDEs) at the developer desktop.
Jason Schmitt, General Manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, emphasized the value of these collaborations in enhancing Synopsys’ offerings and allowing customers to proactively address evolving cybersecurity threats. This partnership aligns Synopsys with leaders in the field of mobile security and developer-driven security, further solidifying the company’s commitment to robust application security solutions.
Synopsys’ integration of these cutting-edge solutions emphasizes the company’s dedication to empowering organizations to protect their applications from potential vulnerabilities and threats throughout their lifecycle.
