ShiftLeft Recognized as Tech Vendor to Watch in 2018 by Information Week

Company Highlighted for Industry’s First Fully-Automated Cloud Security Solution that Injects Threat Detection into Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI / CD) Process

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov 21, 2017

ShiftLeft™ Inc., an innovator in application-specific cloud security, today announced it has been recognized as a Tech Vendor to Watch in 2018 by Information Week. ShiftLeft was highlighted in the DevSecOps category of emerging IT security technologies in Dark Reading for its fully automated Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) for detecting and mitigating security vulnerabilities in cloud apps and micro services during build-time and runtime.

ShiftLeft delivers the industry’s first fully automated SECaaS for cloud software that understands the security needs of each version of each application, and creates custom security and threat detection for it. With ShiftLeft, organizations can now secure their cloud applications as part of their continuous integration pipeline, rather than merely reacting to threats discovered in production. ShiftLeft identifies vulnerabilities in source code, enabling organizations to either fix them or protect against them in production using ShiftLeft’s Microagent.

“ShiftLeft has seen rapidly growing traction in the industry since our launch last month, and we are pleased to receive this recognition from Information Week and Dark Reading,” said Manish Gupta, ShiftLeft CEO and co-founder. “ShiftLeft is the industry’s only purpose-built security solution for cloud applications. As opposed to constantly reacting to threats, ShiftLeft’s ability to quickly identify an application’s attack surface and create a custom MicroAgent for it is unique. Customers benefit because for the first time they can insert security into their agile CI / CD pipeline that is high-performant and protects the application from data leakage and provides protection against known and unknown vulnerabilities.”

With ShiftLeft, DevOps teams can track compliance requirements for regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for every release; for example, identifying violations such as when a credit card verification code is stored after authorization. Teams can leverage ShiftLeft’s pre-defined policies, or define custom dictionaries that suit their business requirements and development practices, to track the flow of sensitive data throughout their infrastructure.
