As multiple reports have documented, the cloud is increasingly the place to be for organizations that need infrastructure that can be flexible—available at times of heavy demand, but not sitting idle during something like a seasonal decline. That’s what cloud solutions offer, and when it comes to making software security easier and faster, that’s what the upgraded Synopsys Polaris Software Integrity Platform® does. It is easy to scale, both up and down.
In this, the second of three conversations about how the Polaris platform makes everything about software security easier and faster, Debrup Ghosh, senior product manager, and Taylor Armerding, security advocate with the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, discuss how Polaris can help AppSec teams at any scale—whether it’s a startup, a small team, or a large enterprise—focus on what they do best. As Ghosh puts it, “we take away the complexity of doing server upgrades and all the other tasks that took so much time for security teams.” Further, the Polaris platform also helps eliminate “notification overload”—so many alerts from tools, some of which can be trivial or irrelevant that developers start to tune them out—the opposite of the intent.
