Secure Code Warrior has announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to boost developer-led security, helping enterprises add a layer of cloud security and compliance on the already-secure cloud.

Secure Code Warrior has joined the AWS Global Startup Program, an invite-only, go-to-market program built to support mid-to-late stage startups that have raised institutional funding, achieved product-market fit, and are ready to scale. Startups can power their growth at the speed they need by using AWS's resources and driving visibility across multiple AWS teams.

The Secure Code Warrior Learning Platform, a developer-centric training platform, is now listed in AWS Marketplace, a curated digital catalog that makes it easy for organisations to discover, procure, entitle, provision, and govern third-party software.

The collaboration will help businesses looking to upskill security teams to fortify the already-secure cloud by fulfilling the need for security to be intrinsic to a developer's workflow and central to a company's culture—meeting the growing market demand and increasing requirements to stop application vulnerabilities from day one.

"Our collaboration with AWS will support Secure Code Warrior accelerate global growth, particularly across North America, and provide customers with the tools they need to be secure in the cloud as cybersecurity becomes critical to companies moving their entire operations to this platform," says Vikram Ghosh, senior vice president of strategic alliances at Secure Code Warrior.

“Customers of Secure Code Warrior now know that, while AWS is ensuring the security of the cloud, we [SCW] ensure additional security within the cloud, thanks to our human-led approach that embeds secure coding into the developer's DNA,” he says.

This collaboration between AWS and Secure Code Warrior also means customers can easily access and use its flagship Learning Platform through the AWS Marketplace. This software meets AWS's and Secure Code Warrior's shared values around developer-driven security by offering exceptional customer support, keeping aligned software consistently updated, following industry best practices, and facilitating quality and secure code at scale—which aligns with AWS's Shared Responsibility Model.

Ghosh adds, “We're excited by this evolution in Secure Code Warrior's partnership with AWS. The AWS Global Startup Program has a proven track record of driving company visibility and powering growth at speed.

"Through this partnership, we see a great opportunity for Secure Code Warrior to continue achieving growth at scale, while working to ensure software security is intrinsic to both developer and customer.

Secure Code Warrior makes secure coding a positive and engaging experience for developers. Its flagship Learning Platform delivers relevant skills-based pathways for developers to write secure code at speed; whilst intelligent and contextual developer tools fix common security bugs in real-time.

Through inspiring a global community of security-conscious developers to embrace a preventative secure coding approach, its mission is to pioneer a people-first solution to security upskilling, stamping out poor coding patterns for good. Established in 2015, its customers include major financial institutions, telcos, retail, governments and global technology companies across Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific.
