The Benefits of SAST and SCA in Your IDE – Utsav Sanghani – ASW #101
Static application security testing (SAST) is critical for uncovering and eliminating issues in proprietary code. However, over 60% of the code in an average application today is composed of open source components. SAST isn't designed to find open source vulnerabilities (CVEs) or identify open source licenses. And manually maintaining a repository of approved open source components for developers is inefficient and time-consuming. That’s where software composition analysis (SCA) comes in. Introducing a new functionality within the Code Sight IDE plugin that combines SAST and SCA in one place to enable secure development.
