Cure, The Industry's First Self-Repairing Software, Is Released By Whitesource
Talha Tamboli | July 30, 2021
WhiteSource Cure, the first-ever security auto-remediation programme developed for bespoke code, was released today. This ground-breaking release enables enterprises to increase the speed with which safe software is delivered at scale.
Today's software developers and security professionals are struggling to resolve an ever-growing backlog of security vulnerabilities while adhering to ambitious delivery timetables. Indeed, according to WhiteSource customer feedback, the average developer effort for a single security repair is about half a day, which can lead to significant delays in product deliveries. WhiteSource Cure functions as a developer's personal security specialist, accelerating delivery while decreasing workload.
"While corporations demand developers to become security experts, we believe they don't have to," stated Vered Shaked, Executive Vice President, Strategy & Incubation at WhiteSource. "With the launch of WhiteSource Cure, we are bringing security and speed together in a way that was previously unthinkable."
Today's application security testing methods are too often focused on detecting vulnerabilities rather than resolving them, resulting in a never-ending stream of security alarms that overwhelm enterprises. Meanwhile, mechanisms for determining which security vulnerabilities to address first and then resolving them are manual and time-consuming. This also necessitates security understanding that even experienced developers at the forefront of the shift left revolution may lack, let alone novices. WhiteSource Cure automates the application security workload, providing developers with code they can rely on.
The WhiteSource Cure Community Edition is a free-for-ever development tool developed for the open source community that is currently limited to public projects only. WhiteSource will demonstrate the solution at the forthcoming Black Hat event, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas from July 31 to August 5, booth number 1276.
WhiteSource assists enterprises in accelerating the development and deployment of secure software at scale. We deliver automated technologies that bridge the security knowledge gap by seamlessly integrating into the software development life cycle and going beyond detection with a remediation-first approach. WhiteSource is based on the industry's most comprehensive vulnerability database, which provides the most comprehensive coverage for threats and attack vectors. Our solution assists organisations such as Microsoft, IBM, Comcast, Philips, and others in reducing security risk and increasing the efficiency of their security and development teams.
