Cloud Native Application Security

Given the unique characteristics of cloud native applications, the average DevSecOps pipeline contains 10 or more application security tools. However—even then—traditional static and dynamic testing can leave developers struggling to pinpoint vulnerable code and prioritize remediation.

Designed for microservices and Kubernetes, Deepfactor observes running applications to provide developers with integrated security insights discovered during development. Deepfactor augments system and regression testing with application security testing to ensure high-severity risks and vulnerabilities are addressed before releasing to production.

Observe with Kubernetes-Native Instrumentation

Deepfactor is purpose-built to automatically observe cloud native applications, employing a language-agnostic library that can be deployed to any Kubernetes cluster with a single command. No sidecars, agents, or kernel modules required.

Understand Runtime Behavior & Usage

Deepfactor observes running application behavior, composition, system calls, and stack traces to help developers pinpoint and analyze vulnerable code and prioritize its remediation, reducing the time spent fixing inactive code.

// Cloud Native Application Security:

Validate Security Throughout Development

Deepfactor observes running applications during system and regression testing to generate data that can be used to provide developers and QA with high-fidelity security insights. With Deepfactor, every test—unit, integration, regression—becomes a security test.

“The team is so busy with developing new features they didn’t want the additional overhead of looking at security defects. There could be a deluge of false positives. We needed the right tooling. We told AppSec – ‘If you don’t have a test case associated with a particular container, there’s a strong likelihood we’re going to miss out on identifying these vulnerabilities.’”

Protect Releases with Drift Analysis

Deepfactor scans application code to help engineering teams identify changes and trends in between releases, ensuring updates to dependencies, container images, and API interfaces do not introduce vulnerabilities, risky behavior or insecure code.

    Protect Releases with Drift Analysis

    Deepfactor scans application code to help engineering teams identify changes and trends in between releases, ensuring updates to dependencies, container images, and API interfaces do not introduce vulnerabilities, risky behavior or insecure code.

Detect Security Risks Before Shipping

Deepfactor observes running applications in development and testing to help engineering teams uncover critical security risks in custom and third-party code.

Provide Contextual and Actionable Alerts

Deepfactor generates prioritized insights that enable developers to pinpoint insecure code, streamline remediation, analyze drift between releases, and understand potential impact to compliance objectives.

Generate a Dynamic Bill of Materials

Deepfactor distinguishes between active and inactive code, and collects valuable information about the application including packages, dependencies, licenses, processes, and network connections.
