Businesses are rapidly adopting the modern way of creating applications using a microservices based architecture. While microservices have accelerated the process of building software by offering an agile, scalable, and reliable way of composing large applications, they have also increased the attack surface because of the dozens of different microservices that make up an application.
The best way to secure these microservices are while they are in development by using static analysis. The cost to find and fix flaws is low, and shifting security considerations earlier in the SDLC affords the most impactful and cost-effective way to secure these microservices.
Sentinel Source for Microservices, a service of the WhiteHat Application Security Platform, is our Static Application Security Testing (SAST) offering that enables organizations to embrace application security in this microservices world.
