OX Security has been named a Cool Vendor by Gartner, in the research firm’s 2023 Cool Vendors™ in Platform Engineering for Scaling Application Security Practices report.
In organizations today, individual product teams often implement security tools and practices at their own discretion, exposing their organizations to significant risk. To address this liability, forward-thinking companies have begun establishing platform teams, charged with creating a bespoke stable, efficient and secure environment for internal developers to work on their applications. This “ensures consistency and reduces the cognitive load of implementing security controls,” according to the report.
Gartner predicts that “by 2026, 70% of platform teams will integrate application security tools as part of internal developer platforms (IDP) to scale DevSecOps practices, up from 20% in 2023.”
Why OX Security is cool
OX Security was named a Gartner® Cool Vendor for making it “easier to orchestrate security workflows and provide visibility into the software supply chain.” The report noted that OX Security may be of particular interest to platform teams in order to:
- Enforce consistent security policies as part of the SDLC
- Gain visibility and traceability into software delivery pipelines
- Benchmark applications using security risk scores
“We are honored to be selected as a 2023 Gartner® Cool Vendor in Platform Engineering for Scaling Application Security Practices,” said Neatsun Ziv, co-founder and CEO of OX Security. “Before OX, DevSecOps suffered from fragmented workflows and noise from tool overload. OX secures an organization’s path to production, from code to cloud to code, and is hyper-focused on the user experience. Working with platform teams is a very natural fit for us.”
OX security is the first and only platform to scan the entire software supply chain – from code to cloud to code – eliminating any blind spots and delivering complete visibility, context, prioritization of security issues, all in a single pane of glass. Through a combination of best practices from risk management and cybersecurity and a user experience focused on developers, OX makes software supply chain security processes effortless for security teams to manage and easy for developers to adopt.
OX recently launched OX-GPT, the first AppSec ChatGPT integration, which gives developers full transparency with respect to identified risks and customized cut and paste code fixes. Developer adoption of OX-GPT has been rapid, with some users seeing an almost 80% decrease in false positives and a 40% increase in the resolution of critical issues.
