, “NeuraLegion is rationalizing application security for modern development organization. We’re enabling developers, QA professionals & application security specialists to secure their applications and APIs early in the development process, eliminating hours of wasted time looking into detected false positives. To optimize security and speed, remediations and fixes become a native part of an engineers’ workflow; that can be accessed through the command line, existing development ecosystems (CI/CD tools such as Jenkins, Azure Devops, or CircleCl), ticketing systems such as Jira, or through consoles”
Hiro Rio Maeda, the Managing Partner at DNX Ventures, said
, “Along with increasing pressure on DevOps to deploy software faster, security threats to enterprises are rising significantly. The only way to solve this problem is to implement an automated, low friction (for DevOps) and 0‑false positive security testing solution. The DAST market has been long stalled without any innovative approaches. NeuraLegion’s next-generation platform introduces a new way of conducting robust testing in today’s modern CI/CD environment.”
