New Relic announced the public preview of New Relic Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST). New Relic IAST goes beyond current approaches by providing visibility and context to security findings, advanced detection accuracy with near zero false positives and proof-of-exploit, as well as guided remediation. It enables engineers, DevOps, and security teams to focus on real security risks, remediate issues faster across the application lifecycle, and ship secure code with speed and confidence. Available with Data Plus and part of the New Relic all-in-one observability platform, the public preview comes with a free 30-day trial period to bring the power of observability and security to every engineer.
“To help engineers future-proof applications and minimize security concerns, it’s imperative that they reimagine the way they build and secure cloud-native applications,” said New Relic Chief Product Officer Manav Khurana.
The growth in DevOps has enabled teams to build and ship software faster than ever before—yet 85% of applications still contain vulnerabilities. With vulnerabilities and exposures expected to rise throughout this year to 1,900 per month, engineering and security teams must take a context-driven approach that accurately identifies, prioritizes, and verifies vulnerabilities with proof-of-exploit for faster remediation. And, current application security testing methods often rely on a reactive approach, which can result in increased costs, false positives, and missed release cycles.
New Relic IAST comes on the heels of the general availability of New Relic Vulnerability Management, which allows enterprises to manage security vulnerabilities as an integrated part of their observability practice and open third-party data integrations.
New Relic IAST is currently available in public preview as part of the New Relic platform. To learn more, contact your New Relic account representative and get started. Existing users can activate their preview by logging into their New Relic account today. Legacy and site license accounts must migrate to consumption billing for preview access.
