A little over 5 months ago, we launched our free and open code security product Bearer CLI to help teams identify both security and privacy risks in the earliest stages of the software development process. Please join us in celebrations, as today we are very excited to have achieved a key milestone in our journey - 100,000 code security scans!
Code security solutions, and SAST in particular, are more needed than ever to complete the software supply chain security story. Software is still eating the world, and AI paired programming is accelerating digital transformation faster than ever. Unfortunately, code, manually written or auto-generated, is as vulnerable as ever, if not more, forces us to include code security directly in the CI/CD pipeline to ship trustworthy products.
Securing code is tough. It requires a balance between addressing the needs of the security organization and fitting into the developer’s journey, who often didn't sign up for it. Unfortunately, the developer experience has typically taken a backseat for way too long. Despite trends like "DevSecOps," "Shift-left," and "Secure-by-design," the actual integration of these concepts into daily practice remains more aspirational than realized.
At the heart of Bearer is our commitment to embracing the developer workflows. Bearer CLI is the prime example that when developer experience and security requirements work in tandem, the industry progresses toward its goal to build more secure code.
Today, we can confidently say that with more than 100,000 scans and 20,000 downloads in a few months only, we are on the right track.
We want to take this occasion to thank our amazing community and partners. Your support and constant feedback have been instrumental in this journey, and without you, we wouldn't be where we are today.
