New AppSec Demo Videos Highlight Fortify + Visual Studio

by in Security

Did you know the Fortify Education team has created a ton of great resources to assist Fortify users? Among these resources include Fortify Training Courses on Education Central, the Fortify Education After Hours Discussion Forum, and CyberRes Academy for on-demand digital learning. It’s great to have such an extensive library of information available to Fortify users. 

New AppSec Demo Videos Highlight Fortify + Visual StudioWith that said, I’m pleased to announce the latest resource produced by the Education Team: the Fortify + Visual Studio video series on Fortify Unplugged. This is a playlist of six short videos highlighting everything you need to know to get started with Visual Studio. The Fortify Extension for Visual Studio uses Fortify Static Code Analyzer and Fortify Secure Coding Rulepacks to locate security vulnerabilities in your solutions and projects. The scan results are displayed in Visual Studio and includes a list of issues uncovered, descriptions of the type of vulnerability each issue represents, and suggestions on how to fix them. 

 This video series is the first of many that the Education Team has agreed to create for Fortify Unplugged, so stay tuned for more videos in the near future! 

Be sure to check out these new videos (I’ve included the links below) and don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe!
