To empower Brazil and Latin America by providing leading enterprise market application security solutions from around the world, Nova8 is a startup founded in 2016. Adding to a variety of market-leading cybersecurity solutions, the company’s specialized services under its security excellence center help clients tackle today’s diverse market challenges. Organizations have historically focused on protecting their network, which were considered as vulnerable entrances for attackers. However, in current times, attackers are eyeing on organizations' application layers as it is easy to penetrate with lesser security. Protecting applications can be tricky as these need to be open to communicate with the customers while being secure on each customer's network.

It is important for organizations to identify this shift and safeguard their applications from attackers. Here, Nova8 acts as a perfect partner to enable organizations to mitigate threats using state of the art cybersecurity solutions from companies like Checkmarx and WhiteSource. Checkmarx offers the most diverse technology for static application security testing by detecting and correcting vulnerabilities throughout SDLC from coding to application runtime testing stage. Similarly, WhiteSource offers a leading software composition analysis solution to bring application security, testing, and secure development processes inside the enterprise market. Topping these solutions with the company's expert professional services, clients can easily accelerate implementing solutions across all phases for enhanced security levels with agility, quality, and cost-effectiveness. “With our services, we enable clients to deploy DevSecOps strategies meaning security over their devops processes,” says Augusto Campos, CEO of Nova8.

Nova8 begins a customer engagement journey by allowing its application security specialists first to understand the client's application development environment to identify the right security solution for them.
This includes finding out the kind of repository controls, application development pipelines, and more in place. Based on the needs, Nova8 specialists with go ahead and implement either solution from Checkmarx, White Source or additional ones, integrating them into clients' existing environment. Adding to that, the company provides continuous support and assisted operation with the client on a day to day basis to clarify any queries regarding vulnerabilities and corrections.

Citing a success story, Campos illustrates the example of an airline company that wanted to have visibility into potential vulnerabilities in their application as early as possible. The developers would know of any vulnerabilities only once the application was ready. Nova8 enables them to implement the Checkmarx solution, after which the client was able to immediately identify vulnerabilities as soon as the developer wrote code daily. With Nova8 and Checkmarx, it became extremely easy to mitigate any potential vulnerability in the beginning without waiting for the final test. This way, the developers also gain insights on the impact of changing the code. "Being able to immediately understand if the code developed is vulnerable made a huge difference for the client,” says Campos.

Continuing on its mission of providing the best in class cybersecurity solutions to the Brazilian market, Nova8 plans to bring in next-level solutions under its hood. By partnering with new companies leading on various cybersecurity aspects, the company will grow in different areas. At the same time, Nova8 will enhance its specialized security services offering continuous support and assisted operation to help clients be proactive in mitigating risks.
