Synack, the Premier Security Testing Platform, is partnering with Jira Software (from Atlassian), the leading software development tool used by agile teams, to make continuous security validation an integrated part of the SDLC. Synack continuously tests application security throughout the development and update phases so that vulnerabilities can be discovered earlier in the life cycle even as projects frequently change. Unlike traditional static security testing, which runs infrequently and with rigid scope, Synack’s security testing runs continuously and anticipates a dynamic scope.
Agile methodology presents challenges for software security. With an agile Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) comes concurrent workflows, adjusting goals and frequent deliverable changes. Continuous security testing can be adopted to address this dynamic landscape.
