This new collaboration offers GuidePoint Security customers access to Bright’s, developer-centric enterprise grade Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) solution, fortifying the security of critical web applications and APIs.
San Francisco, CA – September 6, 2023 – Bright Security is excited to announce a strategic reseller partnership with GuidePoint Security, a pioneer in cybersecurity solutions that empower organizations to ‘shift security left’, saving time and resources while minimizing security risks to their web applications and APIs. Through this partnership, GuidePoint’s customers have the opportunity to further strengthen their application security, emphasizing early detection and mitigation, thereby ensuring a more secure deployment of their web applications and APIs into the production environment.
Bright’s cutting-edge DAST solution seamlessly integrates with Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) as well as CI/CD pipelines, enabling Application Security (AppSec) and development teams to identify application and API vulnerabilities early in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) with very low false positive rates. This integration facilitates security scans directly from a developer’s working environment. By detecting and addressing vulnerabilities before they go into production, Bright helps organizations avoid security exposure and expensive late-stage corrections.
“As digital transformation continues to evolve, safeguarding application and API infrastructure is paramount. In this era of rapid development and deployment, organizations need to prioritize application security as both a technical and strategic business priority, ensuring a proactive approach to identifying and addressing vulnerabilities,” said Justin Iwaniszyn, Director of New and Emerging Alliances at GuidePoint Security.
“We are excited to collaborate with GuidePoint Security, a recognized thought leader in the cybersecurity landscape. By combining our collective insights and expertise, we aim to help organizations strengthen their application security postures. This partnership underscores the importance of early and efficient vulnerability detection and remediation, which is crucial in today’s fast-paced digital environment,” said Gadi Bashvitz, CEO of Bright Security.
