Join Jim Manico, Guillaume Montard, and Nipun Gupta on a discussion on how application and software security paradigm has changed in 2023, and what a technology like SAST and code security can look like in the future.
Jim Manico is an AppSec veteran, proactive OWASP volunteer, and the founder of Manicode Security where he trains software developers on secure coding and security engineering.
Guillaume is the co-founder and CEO of Bearer. Previously, he spent 10 years as co-founder & CTO at Vodeclic, and later on became VP Engineering at Skillsoft after Vodeclic’s successful acquisition in 2015.
Nipun Gupta is the COO of Bearer, and former VP of Security Innovation at Deutsche Bank. He is a seasoned technology executive, entrepreneur, and speaker with deep expertise in Application Security.
When implementing security and privacy controls in our products, we must continuously ensure that they are effective. We work with Bearer for their ambition to build the best developer-friendly platform to improve the day-to-day work of building new features secured by design, right from the source code. We share their user-first mindset and greatly appreciate the collaboration.
Bearer helps security professionals focus on the issues that matter the most without sifting through tons of false positives. I also like their unique approach of providing privacy insights and pitfalls by analyzing the source code. This will really help modern SaaS companies scale their application security programs and help security professionals discover and threat model sensitive data flows in their applications.
Bearer's speed, accuracy and rules in privacy management make it very exciting for me to join this great companies board!
In a DevOps world of microservices, ultra specialization and segmentation, traditional SAST tools are inadequate -- the lack of context about how and where code will be deployed generate too much noise and create headaches for developers while heightening tensions with the infosec team. This market needs a better way to evaluate source code security.
Bearer takes a unique shift left approach to help identify personal and and sensitive data before commit to a codebase. By pivoting closer to the development pipeline, this reduces the risk of exposure of these types of data in a production environment.
Static analysis security testing (SAST) is now table stakes for any software development organization. The long history of the category and the seniority of many common tools leads some developers to simply check the box of SAST and miss out on the value SAST can provide in terms of improving code quality and reducing risk exposure. Static analysis has long been recognized as one of the most effective ways to ensure safety in code but also has a reputation for being unwieldy and developer-unfriendly. Bearer is here to change all of that by providing a modern, developer first SAST solution.
Bearer makes security and privacy effortless for the developer who is usually way too busy to think about it carefully and diligently. With rules and policies enforced at the code level, the risk for breaches and leaking sensitive data is greatly reduced thanks to their product.
Bearer brings a new approach to an old problem. I was excited to see a platform uncover data risk early in the process and believe Bearer will change how application security is done.
A developer first, open source platform solving important challenges in the security and privacy space. Bearer is a team of experienced technology leaders and technical sme’s working on real engineering challenges.
