Open source components now make up a majority of all applications. These packages speed up software agility but are not without their risks. DevSecOps is a scalable way to address compliance and security concerns while minimizing friction for developers trying to push code. Consider this webinar your blueprint for injecting security into the software development lifecycle early, ensuring you address vulnerabilities before code ever reaches production.

  • Best practices that enable you to shift security left to maintain software development agility.
  • Advanced Software Composition Analysis (SCA) capabilities that will help drive automated risk management, improve security posture, and achieve license compliance.
  • Live demo highlighting how easy it is to enable shift lift with Prisma Cloud.
