Contrast Security (Contrast), the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure-as-they code, announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) DevOps Competency for development, security, and operations (DevSecOps) garnered by demonstrating technical proficiency and proven customer success specializing in DevSecOps.

“We’re honored to achieve AWS DevSecOps Competency status on top of the DevOps Competency status that we received last year. It is a true testament to our efforts in helping large enterprises ensure security and compliance across the entire lifecycle of their web applications and APIs running on AWS,” said Surag Patel, Chief Strategy Officer at Contrast Security. “We’re looking forward to expanding our AWS capabilities so that organizations garner continuous visibility and centralized point-of-control for software risk through a single platform.”

By using instrumentation technology, Contrast Security is embedding self-assessment and self-protection capabilities directly into AWS applications during run-time. This enables DevSecOps teams to detect accurate code-level vulnerabilities (both custom code and open source libraries) in development and quality assurance (QA) environments, and monitor and block production applications from threats and attacks in real-time.
