Enhanced ValueEdge + Fortify Integration Supports End-to-End DevSecOps

Incorporate continuous security into your DevOps processes with Fortify Software Security Center and Fortify On Demand

Maintaining security throughout the complex and fast-paced software delivery process is a challenge, especially as more enterprises adopt shorter development cycles with continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD). Instead of waiting until the end of a sprint or release to check for security vulnerabilities, DevOps teams are increasingly seeing the value of making security integral to every phase in the software development and operations process. Doing so will create a culture of shared responsibility and awareness of security issues among the members of the development, testing, and release teams, improving he overall quality of the application and ensuring issues are resolved before they impact users.

In order to do this, your team needs to be able to rely on an integrated, cohesive DevSecOps process that brings together the people, tools, and data in your software delivery lifecycle (SDLC) from end-to-end. The enhanced integration between OpenText Fortify and OpenText ValueEdge allow you to ensure high-security applications without slowing down delivery, allowing you to:

  1. Fix things faster by putting tools directly in the hands of the developers and engineers writing code. The key to ensuring secure, stable applications while still delivering at speed is to make security everyone’s responsibility. From the moment code is written, developers can use the integration with Fortify Security Software Center to check for vulnerabilities before they end up holding up the entire project.
  2. Give advanced warning to managers and stakeholders when issues arise. By tracking the number and severity of existing issues and flagged items, managers can address potential problems and reassign resources if necessary before the deadline is missed. They can use the data to pinpoint where reinforcement or training may be needed and use real information to justify resource and tooling needs to stakeholders so they can have the correct expectations.
  3. Track security vulnerabilities across multiple products and releases in the context of the applications and initiatives they impact. Over time, managers and stakeholders may notice patterns of troublesome applications where technical debt or aging infrastructure is creating more work from a security perspective. They can then use this information to proactively plan on maintenance or replacements that in turn contribute to a smoother, faster, and more secure software delivery process.
