Secure Code Warrior pioneered the approach to developer-centric secure coding by recognising that upskilling coders would reduce the occurrence of preventable vulnerabilities.
By taking a developer-centric approach to solving that challenge, our solutions unite security and development teams with a common goal of developing secure software - allowing them to ship quality software with confidence
Our flagship 'Learning Platform' is designed to move the focus from reaction to prevention, equipping Developers to think and act with a security mindset as they build and verify their skills, gain real-time advice and monitor skill development.
Secure Code Warrior 'starts left' within the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) turning it into the Secure Software Development Life Cycle (SSDLC); focusing on making the Developer the first line of defense by preventing coding vulnerabilities from happening in the first place. Most current application security tools focus on 'shifting left' in the SDLC – an approach that supports detection and reaction – detect the vulnerabilities in the written code and react to fix them.
According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the relative cost of fixing defects grows significantly through the software development lifecycle. Their findings indicate it is 30 times more expensive to detect and fix vulnerabilities in committed code than it is to prevent them when writing code in the IDE, and up to 60 times more in case of security defects! Another set of findings identified 606 recorded software failures, impacting half of the world’s population (3.7 billion people), US$1.7 trillion in assets, and 314 companies!
