How Pentest as a Service Fits the DevOps Model for Snow Software

Snow Software looks to Cobalt to fully integrate security.

Snow Software is the global leader in software asset management, helping companies manage a strong technological foundation. As they continue to work with larger-scale companies, operating in the enterprise segment requires strict security requirements. Snow Software frequently releases new features — therefore, they needed Cobalt to ensure security was integrated tightly into all development activities.

Cobalt provides Snow Software with the capabilities to test applications more frequently and generate reports that suit very different needs, including development, business, and customer needs. The Cobalt platform serves as the base for the pentest, allowing Snow Software the ability to track all activity and findings.

The platform is easily integrable with Jira and GitHub, which makes it seamless for teams to get the new findings in their backlogs as they arrive. Not only that — Cobalt puts companies at ease with quick, skilled pentests. For Snow Software, the lead time was about 48 hours, meaning the pentest could start as soon as they were ready.
