Bionic, the Application Security Posture Management (ASPM) platform, is debuting two new product features that enable its platform to further aid engineers in dealing with the abundance of security vulnerabilities facing them today. These features—Bionic Signals and Business Risk Scoring—were built for engineering teams to detect and prevent against security threats before they impact business outcomes, according to the company.
In a world where “shifting left” in security lands engineers with a sprawl of security tools and information to manage, engineering productivity remains low, allowing some critical threats to fall through the cracks. As a response to the increasingly complex security workload plaguing engineers, Bionic’s platform seeks to afford organizations with complete end-to-end application visibility and context so they can resolve threats in as little as minutes, according to the company.
Continuing to strike that balance of engineer productivity and robust security, Bionic’s recently announced product features target noise reduction for engineers as well as granting greater understanding of what to fix in the event of vulnerability—and what to resolve first.
"The surge in applications and shift to continuous delivery are introducing new attack surfaces and attack vectors at an unimaginable rate. Most security tools today focus primarily on discovery, but without operational insights into critical exploitable business risks, all they provide is noise," said Eyal Mamo, co-founder and CTO at Bionic. "Our next-gen application security platform discovers and visualizes all services, dependencies, APIs, and data flows. We then detect, score, and prioritize application risk so that teams can spend time fixing what needs to be fixed. That's why the largest enterprises across nearly every industry are leveraging Bionic for ASPM."
Bionic Signals correlates security signals throughout an engineering team’s tools, giving these teams robust comprehension of their vulnerabilities. The feature reduces engineer triage and toil by 95%, enabling teams to harbor greater context of threats while reducing overall noise, according to Bionic.
Bionic Signals’ power is further amplified by the company’s first major signal integration with Wiz, a cloud security leader, as well as with security tool SonatypeIQ. Integrations will continue to expand on behalf of Bionic, ensuring that a wide array of security tools are accounted for.
"Identifying and mitigating risk is a top priority for nearly every business. As organizations innovate with the cloud, they need to protect their cloud-based applications at the same pace that engineers ship code," said Oron Noah, director, product management at Wiz. "Together, Bionic and Wiz bring unparalleled context to complex, chaotic cloud environments and applications. By integrating Wiz's best-in-class cloud security platform with Bionic ASPM, we can enable visibility and context in complex cloud environments and applications."
Business Risk Scoring equips security teams with the vital context associated with what to fix and what to fix first during times of significant cyber threats. This feature disposes of the common method of automated risk assessment—CVSS scores—and instead understands the business criticality of each vulnerability and its accompanying architecture exploitability to inform its assessment. The Business Risk Scoring feature enables engineers to make better, more informed decisions about security through risk-based prioritization, according to the company.
