Decrease mean-time-to-fix for vulnerabilities
Stop sending developers emails of PDFs with vulnerabilities or asking them to learn and use completely new tools. ThreadFix places critical vulnerability data into the tools development teams are already using, such as defect trackers and integrated development environments (IDEs). This reduces friction in the remediation process and helps decrease the mean-time-to-fix (MTTF) for identified vulnerabilities.
Directly Export Vulnerability Data into Software Defect Trackers
Communicate application vulnerability data to software development teams by directly exporting vulnerability data into software defect tracking and change management systems. Incorporate the tools and processes your development team is already using to manage workloads, and in turn, focus the team’s time on remediation.
As software development teams resolve defects, ThreadFix detects these changes, enabling the security team to perform follow-up testing to confirm security holes have been closed.
Highlight Vulnerabilities Identified by SAST, IAST and DAST Scanners
Using IDE Plugins, developers can immediately view where identified vulnerabilities exist in their code and access pertinent information, such as:
- What is the vulnerability?
- How do I fix the vulnerability?
- Links to associated defect tracker issues.
Guard Against Common Vulnerabilities with Virtual Patching
ThreadFix creates Web Application Firewall (WAF) rules to help block malicious traffic while vulnerabilities are being resolved. This provides protection for development teams while they work to make code-level fixes, ultimately resolving underlying security issues. Virtual patching helps guard against common vulnerabilities, such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection.
