The AppSec Awareness Solution for DevOps

Injecting AppSec Awareness Across the SDLC

First the bad news: You’re not going to build a robust security culture (throughout the software development lifecycle) by training your developers once a year, or even once a quarter.

With so much change running through both the SDLC and the security landscape, “once in a while trainings” simply aren’t enough. Frankly, changing culture by raising AppSec awareness isn’t about inserting a step in the SDLC. It's about inserting awareness into every step (of the SDLC) in a way that actually fuels faster, more secure releases.

Now the good news: This is exactly what Codebashing does, using ongoing communication and just-in-time training made up of fun, snackable content.

Start your free Codebashing trial today and help build a software development culture that empowers developers to think and act securely, every day.

Learn While Coding

Unlike traditional classroom or video-based training, Codebashing is a hands-on, interactive solution that fits into developers' daily routines. Rather than spending a whole day learning about security vulnerabilities out-of-context, developers receive bite-size, on-demand sessions that are relative to the specific challenges they are facing in their code.

Find and Fix in One Go

Checkmarx offers a unique integration between its Static Application Security Testing solution and secure coding education solution. Vulnerabilities identified by static analysis are linked to practical training lessons, providing quick and pointed remediation guidance. This teaches the developer why the problem happened, how to fix it, and, more importantly, how to prevent making the same mistake again.

Raise the AppSec Bar at Scale

Codebashing allows security teams to raise the AppSec knowledge baseline across the entire development team in a fast, scalable, and positive manner. The philosophy behind the solution is to empower developers long-term, by teaching them how to think and act with a secure mindset, rather than how to solve specific issues. Managers have full control and visibility - they can easily assign specific programming languages courses to their teams and continuously track their progress.

Provide an AppSec Channel of Open Communication

With Codebashing, security teams can keep developers up to date on general AppSec news, organization-wide security announcements, and specific Codebashing activities. Examples include, a weekly security best practice tip, a monthly training reminder, a quarterly security challenge and an annual company secure development guideline.

Comply with Regulatory Standards

Codebashing is compatible with regulatory standards such as the PCI-DSS that requires either “role based security training” or more specifically “developer security training”.

What Our Customers are Saying

I think the value in CxCodebashing is that the training is relevant, the developers find it interesting, and the concept resonates because it’s gamified and the lessons are bite-size, so it’s easy to consume. It’s timely and relevant and helps them write better code.
Codebashing has enabled Sky to roll out our secure coding training initiative to thousands of our developers across our Engineering departments at a scale which would otherwise be impossible to manage with conventional approaches.
Codebashing’s friendly user interface, expansive set of lessons, broad language coverage and valuable educational information stood out. Developers understand the CxSAST findings, how to fix them and why coding securely is crucial throughout the SDLC to build secure applications.
