Codebashing helps developers learn and sharpen application security skills in the most efficient way, because it is in-context and available on-demand. Codebashing is fully integrated into the CxSAST user interface so when developers encounter a security vulnerability they can immediately activate the appropriate learning session, quickly run through the hands-on training, and get straight back to work equipped with the new knowledge to resolve the problem.
Along with the understanding that application security has to start during the development phase of the application comes the need to increase developers secure coding best practices techniques. More often than not, developers lack application security skills.
Existing training solutions are ineffective and slow them from accomplishing their main task – writing code. Even if there is periodic security training, the knowledge gained usually fades over time, rendering the effort ineffective. Contextual training modules allow developers to receive on demand education relevant for their specific challenges.
Digestible bite size training modules – Rather than spending a whole day in a classroom, developers can increase their skills using 5 to 10 minutes sessions without leaving their work environment.
Interactive – Through hacking and fixing a live demo application, the developer gets an interactive and engaging hands on experience along with a clear explanation on how to correctly fix the relevant vulnerability.
