Why do Developers need Probely?
Existing scanning tools were not built targeting developers, and in today’s world, with the explosion of web applications and agile development methodologies, developers need to be more independent in regard to properly assessing the security of their web applications.
Being independent means being able to test their apps earlier in the development process, frequently and automatically, without requiring the help of security professionals. This agility contributes to a faster, and consequently more affordable development process while improving the overall security posture of web applications.
All scans start off by running a fingerprinting module, which will detect technologies being used on your site. If available, Probely will provide tailored instructions on how to fix vulnerabilities based on the technologies used on your site.
Probely integrates with the most popular CI/CD tools, issue trackers and messaging apps. If, for instance, you use Jira as your issue Tracker and Jenkins as the CI/CD tool, you can orchestrate Probely to be used in a seamless way, without the need to change work habits. Automatically start scans within your CI/CD Pipelines. Get the vulnerabilities found by Probely as new issues on Jira. After they are fixed, just close them as you would with any other issue, and Probely will automatically re-test the vulnerability and reopen the issue on Jira in case it’s not properly fixed.
API-first Development Approach
Probely follows an API-first development approach. This means that every single feature of Probely is first available on the API and then added to the interface. If we don’t have the integration you need, or if you want to integrate Probely with custom software or workflows, you can always use our API. You can also register account-based or target-based web hooks so that your application is always notified on every Probely event.
