Synopsys partners with NowSecure and Secure Code Warrior


Synopsys, Inc. has announced the details around two new collaboration agreements with NowSecure, expert in mobile security and privacy, and Secure Code Warrior, provider of the agile learning platform for developer-driven security, to expand its Software Integrity Group’s industry-leading portfolio of application security testing (AST) solutions. 

Synopsys is introducing two new application security solutions leveraging these strategic partners: Synopsys Mobile Application Security Testing powered by NowSecure and Synopsys Developer Security Training powered by Secure Code Warrior. Both are available today worldwide.

“Partnering with two of the most prominent leaders in their respective areas of cybersecurity allows Synopsys’ global roster of customers to stay ahead of the continually evolving threat landscape,” said Jason Schmitt, general manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group.

“The NowSecure automated mobile capabilities seamlessly complement Synopsys’ industry-leading managed services in mobile application security testing to provide an unparalleled level of coverage and scalability. Additionally, reducing software risk must begin at the developer desktop, and Secure Code Warrior’s developer-centric approach to security training has proven to be effective in embedding secure coding principles into an organisation’s development culture.”

The Industry’s Leading Mobile Application Security Testing—Now Faster and More Comprehensive

The Synopsys Software Integrity Group’s strategic collaboration with NowSecure introduces an automated continuous mobile application security testing (MAST) solution purpose-built for securing the complex infrastructure of the modern mobile software development lifecycle (SDLC).

The new offering, designed to supplement Synopsys’ industry-leading managed MAST services, provides an unmatched level of testing coverage though rapid, automated and language-agnostic static, dynamic, interactive and API security testing of Android and iOS binaries.

Additionally, Mobile Application Security Testing allows development and security teams to analyse a mobile application’s components—including open-source components, third-party software development kits (SDKs), and transitive dependencies—as well as implement standards-based automated security testing into continuous integration and continuous delivery/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines.

“We are excited to join Synopsys to deliver the most complete application security solution suite in the industry,” said Alan Snyder, CEO of NowSecure. “Mobile apps now dominate the global economy and have become the primary engagement and revenue platform for nearly every business, agency and organisation around the world.

As a mobile-first, mobile-only company for more than a decade, we help enterprises secure and protect millions of mobile users. Today our partnership with Synopsys will make it easier for organisations to cover all aspects of application security.”
