WhiteHat Security has announced the addition of Sentinel Source for Microservices to its portfolio of static application security testing services. The solution allows organizations to consume the SAST services they need for microservices-based applications. The solution allows users to assess code anywhere in the development cycle; run continuous, scheduled, or on demand assessments; preserve an organization’s IP; and stay up-to-date on the latest attacks.
“Working in partnership with our customers, we’ve been able to assess the application security needs of real-world microservices-based implementations,” said Setu Kulkarni, vice president of corporate and product strategy at WhiteHat. “DevOps teams need a SAST solution that can scale up or down with them. With Sentinel Source for Microservices, our customers can enjoy the benefits of a world-class SAST solution and an innovative licensing model that doesn’t lock them into having to anticipate size of applications or the number of microservices, and then suffer budget overruns when they exceed their projections.”
