SAN FRANCISCO, April 24, 2023 - Harness®, the Modern Software Delivery Platform™ company, today at the RSA Conference 2023, announced the latest release of its Security Testing Orchestration (STO) module, enabling developers to identify security issues earlier in the software development lifecycle and providing an innovative solution to ensure application software vulnerabilities are identified, deduped, prioritized, and remediated. With these new features, developers can work more efficiently and collaboratively with security practitioners to save their organization time, cost, effort, and reduce risk.
Announced in general availability last year, Harness STO empowers developers to integrate security throughout the software delivery process. This is a critical capability for companies seeking to avoid the potential financial, reputational, and legal costs of security vulnerabilities. This is an immediate need for organizations, as an Enterprise Strategy Group report found 35% of respondents reported releasing production-level code with known vulnerabilities and 45% released software without any testing and/or security checks. Harness STO lets developers prioritize application security vulnerability data, so they can deliver secure applications while maintaining deployment velocity.
“For fast-moving organizations, efficiency and security are critical when it comes to software development and delivery, however, ensuring both can be challenging,” said Nick Durkin, Field CTO and VP, Field Engineering at Harness. “This suite of enhanced features in Harness STO empowers developers and security teams to work together, to increase both efficiency and productivity, simplify remediation, and offer greater governance and policy control, all while maintaining security controls.”
Key features of this latest STO release include:
Harness STO can be customized based on organizational needs, and includes both scalability and flexibility for additional integrations to be incorporated into existing workflows. Harness also provides support and training to ensure successful adoption for organizations.
