Code Dx Now Available in Microsoft’s Azure Government Cloud Marketplace

Bitnami has included Code Dx in the first wave of applications published to Microsoft’s Azure Government Cloud Marketplace. Code Dx provides comprehensive tools for software development professionals and quality assurance experts to test applications for vulnerabilities, pinpointing issues in the actual code.

With the recent attention and focus on application security—along with the tools Code Dx provides to ensure software development compliance with standards found in regulations like the DISA-STIG—government and eligible private entities alike will benefit from the greater availability and utility offered by the Azure Government Cloud platform.

With lightweight, secure access to cloud-based, physically isolated instances of Code Dx, users can quickly aggregate the results of multiple analysis tools, compare them to a wide range of industry security standards (such as OWASP Top 10), and triage identified vulnerabilities based on severity. With deployment on the Azure Government Cloud Marketplace, both new and existing users can access Code Dx on this new platform in addition to the various other deployment options already available.

For government and government-affiliated agencies, this represents a secure solution to a complex problem, but private entities also have to contend with vulnerability identification, management, and remediation, as well as ensuring compliance with regulations like HIPAA. Deployment on the Azure Government Cloud Marketplace platform gives these users the same benefits of security and cloud-based access.

To spread awareness about application security—what developers, government organizations, and security professionals need to know about it, how it’s different from network security, and what needs to be the focus in the future—and to explain some of the highlights of Code Dx’s utility, Bitnami and Code Dx are hosting a webinar on December 6, 2016, at 10 AM PST.
