As the pace and complexity of software development increases, security and development teams in all industries have recognized that integrating and automating security testing within their development toolchains and workflows is essential. However, they often find that doing this can slow development pipelines and overwhelm development teams with large volumes of testing results, many of which do not require immediate attention.


The concepts and technology behind Intelligent Orchestration were developed and refined through years of experience helping customers navigate these challenges, including a Fortune 500 financial services company undergoing a significant digital transformation effort:
