SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA® Conference 2018, Booth #N3815 – Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced new functionality in its web application security offerings that helps teams automate and operationalize global DevSecOps throughout the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), drastically reducing the cost of remediating application security flaws prior to production.
Qualys Web Application Scanning (WAS) 6.0 now supports Swagger version 2.0, allowing DevOps teams to streamline assessments of REST APIs and get faster visibility of the security posture of mobile application backends and Internet of Things (IoT) services. Additionally, a new native plugin for Jenkins delivers automated vulnerability scanning of web applications for teams using the popular Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) tool. In tandem, customers can now leverage the new Qualys Browser Recorder, a free Google Chrome browser extension, to easily review scripts for navigating through complex authentication and business workflows in web applications.
Qualys will showcase these new tools and enhanced functionality during RSA® Conference 2018.
"One of our goals is to perform security testing early in the software development lifecycle and being able to seamlessly integrate scanning into our build environments is key to that," said Dmitry Tysh, Sr. Software Developer, IT Development, OSIsoft, Inc. "We are looking forward to using these new capabilities in Qualys WAS to further automate testing of our web apps and APIs."
"As companies move their internal apps to the cloud and embrace new technologies, web app security must be integrated into the DevOps process to safeguard data and prevent breaches," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. "Qualys is helping customers streamline and automate their DevSecOps through continuous visibility of security and compliance across their applications and REST APIs. With the latest WAS features, customers now can make web application security an integral part of their DevOps processes, avoiding costly security issues in production."
