Enso Security unveils AppSec Map, a free industry collaboration initiative
The live, interactive map presents vendors and community projects related to application security
Israeli startup Enso Security, which has developed an Application Security Posture Management (ASPM) solution, has launched a free community initiative, the AppSec Map. The AppSec Map, designed as an industry collaboration tool by former security leaders at Wix.com, is a live, interactive map of vendors and community projects related to application security. Created by AppSec professionals, this resource is continuously updated as part of Enso's effort to map the application security domain and help AppSec teams find the products and services most suitable for them.

The map includes commercial services and solutions as well as open source tools and projects for any AppSec related activity, such as security training, application security testing and runtime detection and protection.
“In the era of digital transformation, more and more businesses rely on the resilience of their digital services. However, as we can all see in recent reports about defects and incidents, a gap in application security can jeopardize the business of any company, and yet AppSec teams are often outnumbered and under-equipped,” said Chen Gour Arie, co-founder and chief architect at Enso Security, which has raised a $6 million seed funding round led by YL Ventures. “The SolarWinds Orion attack began with a tiny strip of code. A little trial balloon to see if it was possible to modify SolarWinds' signed-and-sealed software code. It shows how the most advanced and elaborate hacking groups are targeting applications. The AppSec map will help prevent future hacks, empower AppSec professionals and grow our community.”
