There will always be a natural tension between cybersecurity teams and developers. After all, it's the developer's role to "develop." They want and are paid to create and ship new applications and features that help move the organization forward. It's the role of security, however, to make sure bad things don't happen when new software is deployed, such as suffering from a data breach or the loss of availability of business services due to vulnerable software.

The entire team is abruptly woken up by the deafening screech of the fire alarm. Everyone is suddenly snapped awake and confused in a state of panic. Even though this wasn't a premeditated event, it was a good lesson for the team on the impact of false positives. At Probely, we thrive at having one of the best false-positive rates in the market, and incidents like this help pass the message to the other team members.
This blog post defines GDPR Compliance for web application and API security, lists its potential technical and business impacts for the critical risks, explains how the Probely scanner can help with GDPR compliance and provides examples of what you can do right now to get started.
Depending on the target's nature, you may want to prevent scans from running at certain times. For instance, when you don't want scans to affect your team's productivity during working hours or when you want to guarantee that your website can handle all customer requests during peak hours. With Probely, you can pause and resume scans later, both on-demand and automatically.
This blog post describes our partnership with the OLX Group that enabled them to use Probely’s API driven security scanner to secure their customer data and facilitate creativity. Probely integrated quickly with their in-house solution Dalek and provided evidence of vulnerabilities with no false positives.
Understand how to use Teams to mimic your company’s structure better and address its needs. Please note that this feature is only available for Probely Plus. Teams provide a way for you to group Users, API keys, and Targets in one place so that managing them becomes easier and time-efficient. You can create multiple teams for one account. Teams act as independent units/groups and help you separate and assign targets for each team, limit the number of targets, set scopes, and user roles. One user can be added to different teams and assigned roles that don’t affect one another, such as an admin, developer, or a custom role.

An efficient DevSecOps pipeline relies on scaling web applications and API security. And, small development teams are required to take on increasing responsibility for security without large security teams. This blog post offers an efficient solution to the challenge of scaling in DevSecOps teams.
The status quo in the cyber-security industry is that most small businesses can’t afford a security solution, and any attempts to become more secure are either drowned in technical jargon or in distant price-ranges. In order to change the way businesses deal with security, this status quo has to be challenged.
