Synopsys unveils collaborations with NowSecure and Secure Code Warrior

Synopsys, Inc. has recently disclosed the details of two groundbreaking collaboration agreements, solidifying strategic partnerships with NowSecure and Secure Code Warrior.

NowSecure is a renowned authority in mobile security and privacy, while Secure Code Warrior leads the way in offering an agile learning platform tailored to developer-driven security. These collaborations serve as pivotal steps to expand the Software Integrity Group’s already renowned collection of application security testing (AST) solutions.

Synopsys is proud to introduce two cutting-edge application security solutions, harnessing the synergies of these esteemed partners: Synopsys Mobile Application Security Testing, powered by NowSecure, and Synopsys Developer Security Training, powered by Secure Code Warrior. Both these solutions are now accessible on a global scale.

Jason Schmitt, the General Manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, explained the significance of aligning with these cybersecurity leaders and highlighted how these collaborations empower Synopsys’ worldwide clientele to proactively navigate the ever-evolving threat landscape.

“Partnering with two of the most prominent leaders in their respective areas of cybersecurity allows Synopsys’ global roster of customers to stay ahead of the continually evolving threat landscape,” he said. “The NowSecure automated mobile capabilities seamlessly complement Synopsys’ industry-leading managed services in mobile application security testing to provide an unparalleled level of coverage and scalability.

“Additionally, reducing software risk must begin at the developer desktop, and Secure Code Warrior’s developer-centric approach to security training has proven to be effective in embedding secure coding principles into an organisation’s development culture.”

Elevating Mobile Application Security Testing to New Heights

The strategic partnership between Synopsys Software Integrity Group and NowSecure has given birth to an automated continuous mobile application security testing (MAST) solution. This solution is purpose-built to safeguard the intricate framework of the contemporary mobile software development lifecycle (SDLC).

This new offering, designed as a complementary enhancement to Synopsys’ top-tier managed MAST services, introduces unparalleled testing coverage. Through rapid, automated, and language-agnostic static, dynamic, interactive, and API security testing of Android and iOS binaries, this solution ensures comprehensive security evaluation.

Additionally, Mobile Application Security Testing empowers development and security teams to meticulously analyse a mobile application’s constituents, including open-source elements, third-party software development kits (SDKs), and transitive dependencies.

It also facilitates the integration of standards-based automated security testing into continuous integration and continuous delivery/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines.

Alan Snyder, CEO of NowSecure, expressed enthusiasm for the collaboration with Synopsys, which culminates in the most comprehensive application security solution suite within the industry. “We are excited to join Synopsys to deliver the most complete application security solution suite in the industry,” he said. “Mobile apps now dominate the global economy and have become the primary engagement and revenue platform for nearly every business, agency, and organisation around the world.

“As a mobile-first, mobile-only company for more than a decade, we help enterprises secure and protect millions of mobile users. Today our partnership with Synopsys will make it easier for organisations to cover all aspects of application security.”

Empowering Developer-Driven Security on an Enterprise Scale

Synopsys Developer Security Training, powered by Secure Code Warrior, emerges as a robust enterprise-grade agile learning platform.

This platform is meticulously crafted to equip developers with robust security capabilities, while concurrently offering security leaders a streamlined avenue to standardise security practices across the organisation.

Encompassing over 8,000 learning experiences, Developer Security Training delivers an interactive and hands-on approach. It features an array of self-paced educational resources, interactive challenges emulating real-world scenarios, step-by-step walkthroughs, assessments, and more.

With a diverse content library spanning across 60 coding languages and development frameworks, teams can tailor security training to align with the unique focus areas of individual developers, be it web, mobile, API, or other domains.

The platform seamlessly integrates with Synopsys Coverity®, Synopsys Seeker®, and Synopsys’ recently launched Software Risk Manager—an influential application security posture management (ASPM) solution. This integration offers teams a comprehensive solution for mitigating and preventing security issues across the SDLC, extending even to integrated development environments (IDEs) at the developer desktop.

Pieter Danhieux, Co-founder and CEO of Secure Code Warrior, underscored the pivotal role of software security in the DevSecOps strategies of all companies. “The security of software is critical for all companies and their DevSecOps strategy, and we’re ecstatic about the opportunity to partner with Synopsys to enable more agile learning experiences for software developers around the globe,” said Danhieux. “Teaching software teams to code with secure programming techniques at the start of the development cycle mitigates vulnerability risk.

“Through these direct integrations and AI capabilities within our platform, organisations that use Synopsys’ Developer Security Training powered by Secure Code Warrior are putting developers and engineers in better positions to thrive and be security-capable in ways that matter most to their businesses.”
