Contrast Security makes enterprise-class code security testing tools available to all developers free of charge

CodeSec by Contrast Security makes code security for developers simple and effective with fast analysis times, market-leading accuracy, actionable results, and seamless integration

LOS ALTOS, CA., June 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Contrast Security (Contrast), the leader in code security that enables developers to secure while they code, today announced the launch of CodeSec by Contrast Security (CodeSec), an easy-to-use, self-service, enterprise-tested application security solution available free of charge to all developers. With seamless registration, the fastest and most accurate scanner on the market, and immediate, actionable results, developers can start scanning code and serverless environments with CodeSec to go from zero to secure in less than five minutes.

“IDC research shows that when organizations give developers the right DevSecOps tools, the results are more secure apps, faster remediation, and developers take ownership of app security,” said Jim Mercer, DevOps and DevSecOps Research Director at IDC. “It is encouraging to see Contrast Security offering some of its free self-service enterprise security software features to developers to help them painlessly identify insecure code earlier in the software development lifecycle (SDLC) .”

Using Contrast’s demand-driven analysis, CodeSec delivers 10x faster and more accurate analysis results for serverless code and applications right on the developer’s laptop. CodeSec – Scan optimizes code security for Java, JavaScript, and .NET with fast, industry-leading scans and actionable remediation tips in a simple command-line interface. CodeSec – Serverless leverages a revolutionary new application security tool for serverless environments in AWS Lambda Functions (Java + Python) that instantly detects serverless security vulnerabilities while providing actionable remediation guidance in a simple command line.

“For years, Contrast has secured the code of some of the largest organizations in the world. To fulfill our mission of passing secure code – and we mean ALL code – we decided to give every developer free access to our advanced technology. ,” said Alain Naumann, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Contrast Security. “CodeSec provides the fastest and most accurate results in the industry. In fact, we can deliver 95% more accuracy in Java applications than any other ‘free’ tool, all at faster speeds than any which in the market.”
