SecureLink Partners with ShiftLeft to Cater GCC and African Businesses

Thoma Bravo Acquires Sophos for US$3.9 Billion

Dubai-based risk advisory firm SecureLink has entered into a partnership with ShiftLeft, an application security testing provider, to specifically cater to businesses in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region and Egypt. This is a strategic alliance as ShiftLeft has a real-time application security product suite and SecureLink is a well-established firm assisting its customers to identify, mitigate and manage their cybersecurity risks in GCC and certain African countries including Egypt.

ShiftLeft provides a continuous application security platform, built for the modern software development life cycle (SDLC). It combines static code analysis to quickly and accurately identify vulnerabilities and protect the application in an automated workflow. It integrates directly into DevOps pipelines via pull request or build and analyzes over 500,000 lines of code in under ten minutes. This enables AppSec teams to insert security into DevOps without slowing down innovation. This combination of runtime code analysis and runtime protection makes ShiftLeft’s product suite, a comprehensive application security solution.

The partnership means that SecureLink will now have distribution rights for the entire ShiftLeft product suite which includes ShiftLeft Inspect, ShiftLeft Ocular and ShiftLeft Protect.

Reghu Mohandas, Director of SecureLink said, “Adoption of DevOps requires organizations to be agile and secure at the same time. Using platforms like ShiftLeft, we believe our customers can ensure that their applications are secure, both during build-time and run-time. Under this partnership, we will jointly focus on engaging with customers who require advisory services around application security and leverage the ShiftLeft platform in providing continuous assessment and protection.”

“The GCC and Africa is one of the fastest-growing, and most dynamic, regions powering the global economy,” said Manish Gupta, CEO, and Founder of ShiftLeft. “Combining our fastest and most accurate code analysis with the top application security advisory will provide our customers with the most advanced application security solution.”
