Nucleaus™, the first of its kind SaaS-based application security platform, has launched in the App Store and Google Play. The mobile application, extending the product line, is changing the way static code analysis tools work. With the launch of this mobile app, Nucleaus has created a milestone for Security SAST tools by introducing a first-to-market mobile security app that enables users to quickly identify and remediate application security flaws from anywhere in real time.
At the core of the Nucleaus™ advantage is vulnerability identification in the early stages of the software development lifecycle prior to the code being introduced into a production environment. It examines the un-compiled application source code in Git repositories such as Github, Bitbucket and Gitlab to see if and where security vulnerabilities exist in the authored code as well at the library package dependencies. This form of security testing an inside-out approach.
By detecting security vulnerabilities in code as it is authored as opposed in the testing phase right before release, or in post-production, high-risk issues can be resolved with less risks, effort, time and ultimately cost.
A recent study from Gartner notes that 80 percent of attacks are aimed at the application layer. Using a SAST analysis tool like Nucleaus™ is one of the best ways to ensure your applications are ultimately secure.
Nucleaus™ continuously monitors your code repositories and reports back vulnerabilities and dependencies before that code causes risks. Offering a consistent platform process with minimal learning curve, simple to use interface, remediation strategy reports and NIST conformance status, Nucleaus™ enables transparency and risk management to code repositories.
