Synopsys portfolio integrations help developers learn as they code


Synopsys portfolio integrations allow eLearning to recommend specific lessons based on issues identified by Code Sight and Seeker (IAST). The results:

  • Focused lessons. Developers get information on specific security challenges in their code.
  • To-the-point learning options. Short, targeted lessons allow developers to get back to coding quickly.
  • On-demand education. Developers learn about application security when it makes sense for them.

Code Sight integration

After finding a NoSQL query injection defect in a JavaScript file, Code Sight recommended lessons in eLearning courses.

Seeker integration

eLearning suggested lessons in OWASP Top 10 and Defensive Java Programming for EE Web Applications for this SQL injection vulnerability.

Manage user engagement and measure impact


You can administer eLearning through on-premises course files or our hosted platform. To help you provision courses and gauge their impact, we provide:

  • Flexible implementation. Assign specific courses to user cohorts, or let users learn at their own pace.
  • Certifications. Learners can earn customizable certifications in specific topics.
  • Comprehensive reporting. Assess training impact with real-time reporting on progress, user engagement, and assessment scores for every learner.

Philippe De Ryck

Philippe De Ryck

As a Ph.D. in web security, I learned to dig deep and uncover the root causes of security issues. Now, I use that knowledge to offer security training to developers. Synopsys eLearning is a great way to spread my knowledge to even more developers.

Casey Dunham
