“With the ‘Essentials’ line of products, we continue executing on our strategy to provide a specific, dedicated flavor of application security testing and SCA products for each DevOps persona: programmers with WhiteHat Scout, builders and testers with Sentinel Source and Sentinel SCA Essentials Editions, and deployment specialists with Sentinel Source Standard Edition,” said Joseph Feiman, chief strategy officer at WhiteHat Security.

“With more applications being pushed out than ever, the ‘Essentials’ product line gives organizations technology options that enable security teams to earn quick wins by having developers rapidly detect and remediate security vulnerabilities – a major step in achieving DevSecOps,” Feiman added.
