Synopsys Enables DevOps and Security Teams to Accelerate Development and Workflows

Synopsys, Inc is introducing Fast Application Security Testing (fAST) offerings that represent the latest capabilities and features of the Polaris Software Integrity Platform.

"Today, development, DevOps and security teams of all sizes need a fully integrated and automated solution that combines multiple testing technologies, reduces complexity, and matches the pace of modern DevSecOps," said Jason Schmitt, general manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. "With Polaris, we are delivering a no-compromise application security platform that unifies proven, best-of-breed technologies into an integrated SaaS platform that can scale with them and is supported by the established industry leader."

Synopsys fAST Static and Synopsys fAST SCA enable DevOps teams to quickly find and fix vulnerabilities in their proprietary code and open source dependencies through a single fully integrated SaaS platform.

Underpinned by modern cloud architecture and scalable multi-tenant SaaS delivery, Polaris makes it easy for developers to onboard and start scanning code in minutes while enabling security teams to track testing activities and manage risk across thousands of applications.

The latest enhancements to the Polaris Software Integrity Platform accelerate development, DevOps, and security team workflows by enabling them to:

  • Perform static application security testing (SAST) and software composition analysis (SCA) through a single platform.
  • Build security into DevOps through simplified integrations and automation. Seamless out-of-the-box integrations make it easy to connect Polaris to Jenkins and Jira Cloud, as well as the GitHub, GitLab, and Azure DevOps code repositories. Teams can onboard users and applications quickly across the entire organization, and easily automate scans based on defined schedules, or as part of any CI workflow. They can also define security policies to trigger alerts or halt builds when vulnerabilities are found, and built-in reporting and analytics enable actionability that streamlines remediation workflows and tracks progress across applications and teams.
  • Manage application security risk at enterprise scale. The multi-tenant SaaS delivery of the Polaris Software Integrity Platform includes elastic capacity and concurrent scanning across projects and scan types to minimize time-to-results, and easily scales to thousands of applications to meet the demands of large enterprise development organizations. For security teams, the platform's integrated vulnerability analysis tooling helps identify application security hotspots across the entire software portfolio in real-time in an intuitive dashboard that displays vulnerability severity and type across applications, projects, and test types.

The Synopsys fAST Static and Synopsys fAST SCA offerings are generally available with multiple stand-alone and combined configurations available for purchase.
