Application security is still a challenge for every enterprise. GitHub takes a fundamentally different, community-driven approach to application security by natively integrating security into the daily developer workflow. This developer-driven security is revolutionizing the industry.

In this session, we cover why GitHub entered into the application security arena in the first place with a brief history of Code Security. We then dive into the core features of GitHub Advanced Security: code, dependency and secret scanning. Finally, we'll look at how to scale security to your entire enterprise so you can drive greater risk reduction without impeding velocity, allowing your developers to deploy fast - and safely.

You will learn:

  • How GitHub is approaching App Security
  • Features of GitHub Advanced Security
  • How to scale GitHub Advanced Security across the Enterprise
