The ongoing mantra of software developers is that they’re happy to include security in their development stream—but only if it doesn’t slow them down. Because the pressure for speed in development trumps the pressure for security. So over the past decade, software security teams have focused enormous energy on achieving that speed, with automated tools and services. And a major upgrade in the Synopsys Polaris Software Integrity Platform®, a cloud-based SaaS solution, is designed to make that even easier.
In this, the third and final conversation about how the Polaris platform makes software security easier and faster, Rick Smith, director of product management, and Taylor Armerding, security advocate with the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, discuss how Polaris is easy for developers to use. The benefits include what we call “fAST onboarding,” thanks to integrations with major source code managers that make it easy to start analysis directly from repositories, provide a command line bridge for continuous integration, and include bug-tracking integrations.
