NowSecure GitHub Actions
Developers are building innovative mobile apps faster than ever. NowSecure and GitHub have partnered to seamlessly integrate mobile app security testing into GitHub Workflows. Combine NowSecure Platform and expertise with GitHub Advanced Security to ensure the security and privacy of mobile apps as they’re built to deliver high-quality, secure mobile app releases faster.
Speed Delivery of Mobile Apps with Developer-First Security
Facing tight delivery deadlines and high security expectations, mobile app development teams rely on DevOps tools and GitHub to ship mobile apps faster. Teams need developer-first, integrated security in the software development pipeline to deliver high-quality releases on time and avoid vulnerable software dependencies to safeguard the software supply chain.
GitHub and NowSecure
With more than 83 million developers, GitHub is the most widely used code hosting service in the world. NowSecure has partnered with GitHub to bring developer-first mobile app security analysis through GitHub Actions to enable millions of Android and iOS developers to quickly raise the bar on mobile app security. NowSecure Platform can be integrated with GitHub Advanced Security for mobile app testing and integrated with GitHub Dependabot for dependency tracking.
NowSecure GitHub Action for Mobile App Analysis
NowSecure offers the first automated dynamic mobile app security testing solution integrated into GitHub Advanced Security’s code scanning interface with the NowSecure GitHub Action for Mobile App Analysis. The action delivers fast, automated, and accurate security analysis that can be configured to run on every code commit, tests mobile apps written in any language or with any framework, and feeds security issues back directly to the GitHub Security tab. With this Action, security and development teams can start NowSecure assessments and consume NowSecure results natively in the GitHub interface as code scanning alert tickets.To speed developer issue resolution, all tickets include details such as severity, priority, evidence, remediation instructions, code examples and links to Apple iOS and Google Android developer documentation.
NowSecure GitHub Action for Mobile SBOM
Every NowSecure Mobile SBOM includes component detail for visibility into the libraries and frameworks included in the mobile app; identifying direct and transitive dependencies, pinpointing libraries and frameworks that are using older versions, identifying components that remain but may have previously specified to be removed, and uncovering component license details. The NowSecure GitHub Action for Mobile SBOM integrates this information into GitHub Dependabot to help developers ensure they are using the latest, safe versions of software component libraries, third-party libraries, and frameworks as they build mobile apps. By populating the GitHub Dependency Graph with mobile data, in the future GitHub Dependabot alerts can update dependencies to the latest and more secure versions of libraries in mobile apps.
NowSecure Powers Mobile DevSecOps
NowSecure has partnered with GitHub to deliver the most developer friendly, seamless mobile app security testing process process available in the industry. Embracing Mobile DevSecOps is key to deliver secure mobile apps faster and with NowSecure, developers and security professionals can choose from using any combination of pre-built connectors and direct API and GraphQL access into existing workflows and processes.
