To provide the highest level of data protection and application security Leumit utilized penetration testing extensively. In addition to very high costs. this caused significant delays in releasing applications as manual testing could only be conducted late in the development process. Leumit needed to find a way to integrate application security into the SDLC to speed up application deployment while reducing costs.
Enter Bright! Leumit integrated Bright into their CI/CD framework to enable automated vulnerability testing as part of the SDLC. With this full integration, every new commit invokes Bright which runs a focused set of vulnerability tests. This narrows the scope of tests run with each commit and insures Bright can be run as part of CI/CD. Bright enabled Leumit to run a broad set of vulnerability tests accross web, mobile, and APIs and identify vulnerabilities that were previously not identified by any automated tool. These very quickly remediated by developers who used the clear remediation guidelines provided by Bright to solve issues early in the development process.
Impact on the business
The breadth and depth of Bright‘s scans significantly increased Leumit’s confidence in their DevOps proccesses and their ability to drive continous delivery. All this while reducing the cost of manual penetration testing by more than 50%.
