DevSecOps & The Revolution boman.ai is bringing

Read on to know about how boman.ai is gently shaking the world of DevSecOps!
DevSecOps
DevOps brought the Dev and Ops team together and pushed code faster than ever before. The frequent code changes also raised security concerns, that created the need for security to run as fast as DevOps speed.
We call it DevSecOps where security tools integrates with DevOps at par with other DevOps tools. DevSecOps brings security as code and implements security automation. DevSecOps allows the identification of security bugs early in the development lifecycle and enables developers to attend to security issues quickly. DevSecOps inevitably implements “shift left” security strategy at ease. DevSecOps preaches security as everyone's responsibility and supports security as a shared responsibility between Dev and Ops teams.
DevSecOps challenges
DevSecOps is the revolutionary principle, but this all comes with its challenges. The overall implementation of DevSecOps is a tedious process and requires continuous support.
The Tools
An absolute essential part DevSecOps requires Software Composition Analysis (SCA), SAST (Static Application Security Testing), DAST ( Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), and Vulnerability Management. For each of these, there are commercial options, and buying these commercial tools burn a hole in the security budgets. It is quite challenging for any small or medium enterprise.
A viable alternative to this is using open-source tools. There are myriad open-source tools available, selecting tools, their maintenance is an issue. The results generated contain false positives and generate different types of results. One needs to depend on community support for troubleshooting. Bringing it all together in a CI/CD pipeline is an uphill task that needs a dedicated team of security experts.
The Expertise
It needs a seasoned team of security experts who studies the present setup, select the right security tools as per the technology stack. These selected tools are performed essential security jobs at various stages of the DevOps. Tools are plugged in the CI/CD pipeline, overall implementation consumes significant time, effort, and cost. This also needs security experts to look into alerts and take necessary actions. Security expertise is also needed for rooting out false positives and using the true positive results.
What is boman.ai
This could be challenging to small and medium businesses. Owing to these problems, our team of security experts, leveraged the power of AIML to solve these issues. We brought together open source tools that are handpicked, orchestrated by boman.ai which can perform various scans such as SCA, SAST, DAST, and secret scans in the CICD pipeline.
Boman can be installed in CICD with simple commands and get you started in minutes, DevSecOps implementation is done in no time with no security expertise needed.
We trained ML models to root out false positives and built a strong SaaS platform for vulnerability management. In the Boman SaaS platform, you can get a consolidated view of all vulnerabilities. where you can triage vulnerabilities, mark those fixed, or provide feedback to further improve machine learning and reduce false positives.
Keeping our focus on small and mid-size businesses it is very affordable and budget-friendly. boman.ai is successfully simplifying the adoption of DevSecOps.

Two Challenges of DevSecOps Community - Gone!

Two Challenges of DevSecOps Community - Gone!

When it comes to introducing application security implementation, the DevOps community faces two major challenges -
First, whenever the organizations want to choose a tool in the market, there’s an enormous number of tools that are available. It becomes overwhelming to choose the right tool for organizations.
Second, even if the organizations choose a tool, one tool doesn’t cut all requirements. And they are not able to get started with it since there’s no knowledge of how they’d implement the tool.

We are solving these challenges through boman.ai -

  • It’s simple plug-and-play. You don’t need to select tools; boman.ai has integrated it for you.
  • With easy configurations, boman.ai is able to introduce open-source powered SCA, SAST, secret scan, and DAST scan in quick time. You don’t need any fine-tuning to work around this tool.
  • You’d be able to start DevSecOps without a security expert and will be able to scan & fix the potential vulnerabilities.

Finally, the results are available in the SaaS platform and are refined & noise-free. With the power of AI-ML, you will be able to predict accurate results all the time.

When we talked to the industry experts in DevSecOps, they found two common challenges. According to them, the security tools involved to take the advantage of DevSecOps are quite expensive. That’s why the small & medium-tier organizations can’t easily adapt. And they opt to go with open-source tools. But it’s a bigger challenge to accumulate all the right tools together and what it takes to ensure effective results -

  • The time it takes
  • The cost that is incurred, and
  • The expertise that is required.

This got us pondering. We wanted to create a tool that will not only be agile & value-driven but also be so cost-effective (with lesser expertise and in shorter turn-around time) that every organization could use it and utilize the complete advantage of DevSecOps. And after months of planning, prodding, going back & forth, brainstorming, we are coming up with boman ai, an intelligent DevSecOps tool! We are leveraging the power of AI/ML to help you get the best result with DevSecOps.

Here’s what our tool will deliver:

  • To use our tool, you don’t need to burn time in implementing, training or testing, you can kickstart practically in no time.
  • You don't need DevSecOps experts to plan/execute and implement. The tool will take care of everything.
  • You don’t need security experts to analyze the results, it is taken care of by our AI/ML engine.
  • This tool will give you the priority of issues that needs to be addressed, their business impact, and mediation steps for immediate action.
  • All of these you will get at the most economically viable pricing.

In essence, once you get the tool, just plug it and play to achieve DevSecOps and hold your fort.
