ShiftLeft Inc. Named SINET 16 Innovator Award Winner

Sponsored by Businesswire

ShiftLeft, Inc., the leader in application security (AppSec) for developers, today announced that it has been recognized as a winner in the 2020 SINET 16 Innovator Awards. The highly renowned program recognizes 16 early-stage cybersecurity companies with innovative solutions poised to have a significant impact across all industries. ShiftLeft was chosen from a pool of 123 solution providers from over a dozen countries by the SINET steering committee of distinguished experts in the space.

In the modern software development lifecycle (SDLC), developers perform the majority of the application security work, not traditional AppSec teams. This is why ShiftLeft’s NextGen Static Analysis (NG SAST) solution is designed to bridge the gap between AppSec and development teams and maximize productivity and efficiency. ShiftLeft’s inclusion within this esteemed group of cybersecurity companies validates how the company is disrupting application security for today’s modern SDLC environments.

ShiftLeft’s code analysis is 40x faster than legacy products, delivering results of 250,000 lines-of-code in less than 30 seconds. In addition, ShiftLeft NG SAST is 3x more accurate than competitive offerings based on the OWASP benchmark. Instead of asking developers to context-switch, which impacts their productivity, ShiftLeft NG SAST results are shown to developers in tools they already use, including GitHub, GitLab, Azure DevOps, their IDE environments, or in bug tracking tools like Jira.

“ShiftLeft is honored to have been named a winner in the prestigious SINET 16 Innovator Awards,” says Manish Gupta, CEO of ShiftLeft, “We are proud to be recognized by SINET’s esteemed and accomplished judges. ShiftLeft has had a tremendous year of growth, and we are excited to continue our mission to deliver the most developer friendly products on the market and enhance productivity and security between engineering and security teams.”

This award continues ShiftLeft’s momentum in the market. Most recently, ShiftLeft announced its NG SAST solution is now available on GitHub Marketplace. Now available as a free GitHub App, NG SAST enables extremely fast and highly accurate code analysis to be easily integrated into developer workflows in just a few clicks, making SAST self-serve for the first time in the industry.

On Tuesday, October 20, ShiftLeft will present its solution during SINET Live to an audience of industry leaders, reporters, analysts and VCs who are looking to learn more about and implement leading-edge solutions like ShiftLeft’s Next Gen Static Analysis solution.
