Synopsys strengthens Polaris Software Integrity Platform


Synopsys has announced the availability of Synopsys fAST Dynamic, a new dynamic application security testing (DAST) offering on the Synopsys Polaris Software Integrity Platform.

According to Synopsys, fAST Dynamic enables development, security and DevOps teams to quickly find and fix security vulnerabilities in modern web applications without impeding development velocity.

Synopsys also states that fAST Dynamic features a simplified onboarding and configuration experience, smart attack execution and an innovative analysis engine designed for DevSecOps workflows.

“Dynamic analysis is an essential technology for securing modern web applications, but legacy DAST tools can be too slow and difficult to use in fast-paced development environments,” said Jason Schmitt, General Manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. “With fAST Dynamic, we have evolved the powerful and accurate scanning technology from Whitehat Security to create a solution designed for the speed of modern development.

“Synopsys fAST Dynamic enables DevOps teams to scan their applications quickly and accurately, eliminating the need for time-consuming configuration and triage efforts which are often required with legacy tools.

“With the addition of fAST Dynamic, Polaris customers can orchestrate rapid static, SCA, and dynamic scans through a unified SaaS platform, enabling them to simplify and accelerate their DevSecOps workflows.”

Synopsys fAST Dynamic is designed to support rapid DevSecOps workflows with features that include:

  • Simplified Onboarding and Configuration: fAST Dynamic allows users to initiate scans in seconds, which can be triggered from the user interface or the Polaris API.
  • Smart Attack Execution: Synopsys guarantees that their fAST Dynamic leverages its understanding of modern frameworks and technologies to intelligently navigate and analyse web applications, ensuring comprehensive test coverage.
  • Innovative Analysis Engine: Synopsys also guarantees that fAST Dynamic has been optimised to efficiently target critical and high-impact vulnerabilities, delivering fast and accurate scan results while minimising false positives and unnecessary noise.

Synopsys fAST Dynamic will be generally available on the Polaris platform in April 2024 and can be purchased as a stand-alone offering or together with fAST Static and fAST SCA.
