RFA launches Application Lifecycle Management

by Krystal Scanlon 27 September 2021

RFA has launched Application Lifecycle Management, a development security operations (DevSecOps) service, as an addition to its data management suite of services for clients.

The tool was created in response to the increased sophistication of cyber attacks, which has led to open source projects, products or initiatives being at a greater risk of cyber breach.

Application Lifecycle Management provides an additional step that performs a static code of analysis against security vulnerabilities during the build process. It enables development teams to be agile and deploy multiple times a day without compromising security, compared with most coding practices, which require scheduled reviews and third-party auditors that don’t provide real-time monitoring. 

RFA’s wider management security service combines continuous proactive monitoring of endpoints, networks, applications and web resources with user behaviour analytics and investigations by teams based in a dedicated Security Operations Centre (SOC).

“The world of development has become more dependent on open-source packages, and it greatly increases the risk in the introduction of vulnerable or compromised software packages,” said Yohan Kim, CEO of RFA. “Several instances of theft at crypto funds were due to a lack of code security. Code was manipulated by hackers to reroute funds while the company was unaware of the changes during deployment into production. RFA's DevSecOps process protects our applications as well as our clients’ applications to greatly reduce these types of exploits."
