Secure Code Warrior and Okta team up to create a new solution that can secure developers’ workflows

Secure Code Warrior Connector for Okta Workflows enables a consistent approach to secure encryption so developers meet requirements before entering code

SYDNEY, June 02, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Secure Code Warrior, the global leader in developer-centric security, today announced the launch of an exciting addition to Okta’s integration network. Leading independent identity provider Okta and Secure Code Warrior have teamed up to create the new Secure Code Warrior (SCW) Connector for Okta Workflows solution, enabling organizations and developers to write secure code from the beginning of the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

By prioritizing security, organizations can build an identity workflow that protects designs early in their lifecycle, giving them the flexibility to grant access to the GitHub registry only to developers with adequate security skills. This helps organizations foster a safety-first culture, while SCW’s learning platform empowers developers to meet these standards and requirements. Organizations have implemented this solution in all their application, security and engineering teams to gain an extra assurance of security.

Preventing the validation of insecure code and ensuring better access control during software development is still an important need in all industries. Developers also recognize the importance of delivering secure software applications, but still face conflicting priorities. According to SCW’s recently released study, “The State of Developer-Driven Security Survey, 2022,” 67% of developers have knowingly left vulnerabilities and exploits in their code, citing lack of time and a consistent approach. coding practices.

“This new solution helps organizations reduce the risk of developer validation of insecure code by ensuring employees are constantly aware of the latest vulnerabilities and secure coding techniques. By collaborating with Okta on a security-level verification system, application security managers can rest assured that the team will validate secure code without disrupting developers’ workflow. Managers can now focus on their broad strategic efforts to improve the security posture of the organization without wasting time or quality,” said Pieter Danhieux, co-founder and CEO of Secure Code Warrior.

“Okta Workflows offers a no-code/low-code approach to automate identity-driven processes at scale. We adopted the “Workflows Connector Builder” system early on and are excited to take advantage of Secure Code Warrior’s new connector in Okta’s integration network, which goes beyond single sign-on (SSO) and supports advanced onboarding flows. Developers can rest assured that their knowledge of secure code is up-to-date and relevant to the code they are validating,” said David Shackelford, Okta Senior Director.

The Secure Code Warrior Connector for Okta Workflows leverages key elements of both companies’ technology platforms, benefiting organizations and developers alike:

  • With preconfigured actions, development teams can quickly set up desired workflows in a no-code/low-code environment without the tedious complexity of API calls.

  • Once the workflow is ready, it will run automatically and the frequency can be adjusted.

  • Secure Code Warrior’s learning platform provides visibility into developer review score and course completion status, helping teams know their security skills while coding.

  • Organizations have the flexibility to grant access to the GitHub registry only to developers with adequate security skills

Building and automating secure workflows for developers is now easier than ever with this new industry solution from Secure Code Warrior and Okta.
