Capital Rx Elevates Application Security to New Heights with Backslash Security

The Challenge

Capital Rx is a cloud-native organization that leverages the power and scale of the cloud to operate with unparalleled efficiency and speed in their industry. This necessitated an accurate AppSec tool to support their dynamic environment. The primary challenge was to streamline security processes and reduce the typical back-and-forth between security teams and development and operations teams. The complexity of their application stack and the sensitivity of the data handled made it crucial to have a robust application security solution

The Objectives

  • Achieve high accuracy and minimize code vulnerability false positives.
  • Ensure a clear understanding of risks related to code security.
  • Quickly validate issues to address risks promptly.
  • Distinguish between true reachable threats and mitigated risks with existing controls.
  • Seamlessly integrate into Capital Rx's modern cloud architecture and engineering culture.

Choosing Backslash Security

Shane Garoutte, head of security and compliance, and his team began searching for a solution that could seamlessly integrate with their existing infrastructure and provide accurate security insights.
