Regardless of where your organization sits in the journey towards better application security (AppSec), the reality of what drives future success remains the same. From emerging to maturing to optimizing, all AppSec programs will eventually need to lock down the gold ring of security — otherwise known as visibility.
With strong AppSec visibility comes a myriad of organizational benefits, among them the ability to establish a more federated and shared responsibility model for the security of the software we build. For CISOs and other executives now tasked with pushing this shared model for AppSec forward, identifying how to achieve this level of visibility for the business has become a top priority.
Advanced enterprise AppSec analytics and reporting provide a way to move forward with a true DevSecOps model. This type of security insight enables CISOs to critically assess where they need to focus their efforts and resources to address the biggest corporate risk issues. These reports offer context around risk and set up a successful model for DevSecOps. Security and development teams can both use these analytics to drive better workflows and minimize friction among teams.
