Improve product safety

How it Works

Does your DevOps team ever struggle with With time-consuming security and With compliance processes?

They’re manual, inconsistent, siloed, and expensive — but they also help mitigate risk.

The Fast and Risky approach uses reactive processes like code scanning, penetration testing, and compliance audits to find vulnerabilities after development is complete. Sure, this approach allows you to get to market quickly, but leaves you in an indefensible position in the event of a breach.

On the other hand, a Slow and Safe approach involving processes like threat modeling and risk assessments often takes weeks to complete, slowing down your business and compromising time to market.

With BDA, it’s no longer a choice you have to make.

By automating key portions of the proactive security processes involved in risk assessment, threat modeling, and secure development, you can accelerate software releases and improve product security — all at the same time.
