Defining and Enforcing Security Across the Enterprise

The CISO is responsible for defining and enforcing the corporate security governance program, while ensuring that the applications delivered to the business and its customers are secure. The CISO must also communicate the organization’s security risk posture to the Board and business leaders, and any measures taken to address security gaps.

To this end, the CISO must develop the policies and processes that enable security and DevOps teams to collaborate on security while applying security standards on a continuous, repeatable basis. To be successful, these application security processes must be transparent and friction-free for developers and cannot disrupt velocity. Visibility, through analytics and reports, of the AppSec risk posture across the enterprise is also a critical component for assessing risk and prioritizing remediation processes based on the business impact. The path to achieving this, and gaining a seat at the table, is by working with development leaders to achieve DevSecOps.

The ZeroNorth DevSecOps platform enables organizations to automate and orchestrate key components of their application security program, and to rapidly identify, prioritize and remove the vulnerabilities standing in the way of software excellence.
