Seven Transformational Innovations

  1. Security Service Edge (SSE) secures user access to the web, cloud services, and private applications. It provides adaptive access control, data security and visibility.
  2. ASPM tools manage application risk through collection, analysis and prioritization of security issues to enable the enforcement of security policies and facilitate the remediation of security issues.
  3. SSCS is the set of processes and tolls used to curate, create and consume software in ways that mitigate attacks against software and prevent its use as an attack vector.
  4. Code Security Assistants use  artificial intelligence to help developers identify and remediate security vulnerabilities in code.
  5. Generative Cybersecurity AI facilitates and expedites various cybersecurity tasks including reporting and code remediation.
  6. DevSecOps is the discipline that enables security teams to keep pace with development and operations teams in modern application development.
  7. SCA, which identifies vulnerabilities in open-source packages and other artifacts, is a fundamental element of SSCS and an essential element of application security testing.

“Organizations are experimenting with AI, automation of application security workflows and offerings that bring together infrastructure and application security controls.”
