Contrast Security Launches Alliance Program

Contrast Security, a code security platform built for developers, launched its new partner program, the Security Innovation Alliance (SIA), which is a global ecosystem of system integrators (SIs), cloud, channel and technology alliances.

SIA provides customers with integrated application security solutions from Contrast and its strategic alliance partners, which include leading multinationals like GitLab Inc., Amazon/Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft, VMware, PagerDuty, Armor Code, Zimperium, Anchore, Neosec, Wallarm, Ermetic, Cloudwize, Noname Security, BLST Security, ProtectOnce, Scribe Security, Wiz, Wib and Legit Security. Additionally, the team will focus on building expanded partnerships with SIs, technology providers and independent software vendors (ISVs).

“We recognize that organizations cannot rely on a single security solution to fully protect customers from rising cyber threats. That is why it is critical to have strong, technical integrations between the tools that developers, operations and security teams use,” said Ben Goodman, SVP of Corporate Development and Strategic Alliances at Contrast Security. “Contrast has made significant investments in building an ecosystem, an engineering team, interfaces and tooling in order to launch SIA. I believe that technical partnerships start with technical integrations, and this new partner program will revolutionize the way customers scale their security solutions.”

SIA and the strong strategic partner integrations driven by Contrast will allow partners to integrate with the Contrast Secure Code Platform and enable customers to achieve these benefits:

  • Confidently use Contrast offerings as part of a larger application security (AppSec) program.
  • Enhanced security predictability and reduced risk of implementing new code and AppSec technologies.
  • Strengthened trust and confidence in the technologies that have already been deployed.

“When security solutions easily complement your DevSecOps toolchain, software engineers can deliver production-grade software faster and more reliably,” said Nima Badiey, Global VP of Alliances at GitLab Inc. “As a launching member of Contrast’s new SIA ecosystem, we are helping customers discover and adopt more robust security practices. This enables companies to continually invest and innovate in modern and secure software supply chains.”

SIA is designed to improve its partners’ business capabilities to meet the needs of customers in AppSec. Contrast works with each partner to provide a custom experience that fits its interests and business needs including a simple onboarding process, integration support, joint marketing campaigns and access to the company’s impressive install base.
