AppSec Compliance

AppSec Compliance

Visibility, reporting and governance.


Gain AppSec Compliance Visibility

Many data security and privacy regulations (e.g., PCI DSS, HIPAA, CCPA, GDPR, NYDFS and others) today contain requirements for application security with penalties for violations, not to mention legal ramifications, restitution costs, business loss and reputational damage in the event of a breach. Yet many organizations struggle to gain the visibility needed to assess the compliance status for the applications they are building, in order to address compliance issues before they become costly violations or to demonstrate AppSec compliance during an audit.

Achieving AppSec compliance requires a holistic view of risk together with an in-depth understanding of the vulnerabilities – and their criticality –that affect compliance. Moreover, organizations need a way to easily remediate these compliance-related issues early in the SDLC—all without impacting development velocity and deployment timeframes.

How the ZeroNorth DevSecOps Platform Helps Support AppSec Compliance

Through its automation and orchestration capabilities, the ZeroNorth DevSecOps platform seamlessly integrates AppSec into DevOps pipelines for transparent, friction-free scanning throughout the software development life cycle. It then delivers actionable data developers need to quickly and easily identify and remediate critical vulnerabilities within their existing DevOps processes.

To help assess AppSec compliance readiness and prepare for internal governance and regulatory compliance reviews, ZeroNorth provides dashboards and reports that deliver a comprehensive, consistent view of AppSec risk at the enterprise level, as well as for specific business units, product lines, applications and even DevOps pipelines.

Using ZeroNorth, you can streamline the risk mitigation processes for compliance-related AppSec vulnerabilities, track and measure progress against SLAs, and build compliance-ready applications that pass governance and security control gates as well as audits.
