Kontra is the first and only application security training software that supports the SCORM eLearning standard. Kontra works out-of-the-box with third-party learning management systems and enterprise training platforms to enable security education excellence for companies of all sizes.
“Many developers aren’t familiar with software vulnerabilities, the associated security jargon, or how software bugs can impact the security of their application,” said Gyan Chawdhary, Founder and CEO, Kontra. “With Kontra’s offerings, developers can take on the mind of a hacker and analyze attack surfaces within their applications to learn first-hand how secure code patches can fix vulnerabilities in real-time.”
“According to GitLab’s DevSecOps Survey, 39 percent of developers feel fully responsible for security in their organizations,” said Nima Badiey, VP of Global Alliances, GitLab. “GitLab prioritizes shifting security left, and we are constantly looking to partner with organizations that align with our mission to encourage developers to embrace security skills.”
The partnership illustrates Kontra and GitLab’s commitment to building transparency, traceability, and security for all stakeholders in the development process. With access to the Kontra platform, developers will be able quickly educate themselves on secure front-end, back-end, mobile, embedded, and DevOps frameworks, arming current and future coders with the tools they need to neutralize cybersecurity threats early in the software development process.
