What ottonova Was Seeking

A top priority of ottonova is the protection of sensitive customer data. They also want to focus on continuous improvement of their offered services and implementing required features from the IT team. To unite the two aspects, ottonova started a DevSecOps initiative. Crashtest Security is happy to collaborate with another leading-edge startup from Munich on advancing cyber security at the speed of DevOps.

+ Having an automated scan start as well as the automation of the scan results

+ Possibility to scan API targets and JavaScript

+ Integration into the CI/CD toolchain for continuous security

Continuous Security

The Crashtest Security Suite added a layer of security to each release with automated scans triggered prior to deployment. Integration into the CI / CD toolchain means the development team gets notifications of any vulnerabilities as soon as we find them, leading to quick fixes and a seamless process. 

»The easy setup, the scanning of future-oriented technologies such as JavaScript and API targets, as well as the easy integration into our existing CI/CD pipelines and internal development processes were the main arguments for ottonova.«
