SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Secure Code Warrior (SCW) today unveiled an exciting real-time enhancement to its secure coding platform that will help developers write secure code faster and more consistently.
In the same way a spell-checker assists writers, SCW’s new Sensei coaching plug-in helps developers to be more security aware, adhere to secure coding guidelines and instantly transforms ‘bad code’ into ‘good code’. Sensei can be installed into a developer’s IDE (Integrated Development Environment) in a few minutes to monitor, measure and correct mistakes.
Sensei was built by a team of SCW’s specialist security developers and validates code against both pre-set and customisable authorized rule sets. It alerts the author in milliseconds when they write code that does not align with the company's secure coding guidelines and offers dozens of instant quick-fixes for common vulnerabilities. In its first release, Sensei will be available for Java, Java Spring, C# MVC and Android with more to follow.
Chief Technology Officer of SCW and creator of Sensei, Matias Madou PhD, said the inclusion of Sensei into SCW’s platform would revolutionize the way developers do their job and add a powerful and measurable layer of cyber protection for in-house or outsourced developers.
“Sensei will advise developers when they are breaching security protocols, offering a variety of instant fixes highlighting the specific vulnerability being generated and linking them directly to SCW’s in-depth training on that category of problems,” Madou said. “It is the smartest and easiest way for companies to improve their application security.
“The more development teams use the tools in our platform, the better they will become at coding securely and the less time and money companies will need to spend on fixing bugs or managing security breaches.”
Sensei is currently available as part of a selective early adopter program, with plans for general release in Q2 2018.
