Application Security Imperative: Earlier Is BetterMaturing Toolsets and Markets Fuel 'Shift Left,' Says Patrick Carey of Synopsys
Software development benefits from security checks being brought to bear early and often, but the blending of in-house and open source code has historically complicated that process, says Patrick Carey, senior director of product marketing at Synopsys. Now, however, maturing toolsets and approaches are facilitating security checks, he says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Carey also discusses:
- How "AppSec" is shifting left to find and eliminate defects earlier in the software development lifecycle;
- Static analysis tools versus software composition tools;
- How both toolsets and security teams are maturing.
Carey is senior director of product marketing at Synopsys. He previously worked in product management and marketing roles at a variety of firms, including Black Duck Software, Exoprise Systems and Citrix Systems, among others.
