Announcing Cloudanix Code Security: Elevate Your Code's Defense


We are excited to introduce a powerful addition to our security suite - Cloudanix Code Security (SAST)! This capability empowers you to proactively identify and address vulnerabilities, secrets committed within your source code, ensuring robust protection for your applications. This dynamic capability empowers you to take charge of your code's security posture, ensuring your development teams to build secure and resilient cloud-native applications.

Why Code Security Matters?

In today's dynamic development landscape, security can no longer be an afterthought, particular Code Security. Cloudanix Code Security serves as a proactive safeguard that allows you to fortify your codebase from the very foundation. By scanning your source code for potential vulnerabilities, committed secrets, you can catch and resolve issues early in the development cycle, significantly reducing the risk of security breaches.

It matters, because of a few of the below mentioned reasons:

  • Mitigates Vulnerabilities: Identifies and addresses security vulnerabilities in your codebase, reducing the risk of exploitation by malicious actors.
  • Protects Sensitive Data: Ensures that sensitive information such as user credentials, cloud access keys, payment provider api keys, etc. are not checked in into the source code by mistake and safeguard against potential unauthorized access.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Helps in meeting regulatory requirements and industry standards for security and data protection.
  • Prevents Data Breaches: Effective application security practices prevent data breaches, which can have severe financial and legal implications.

How Cloudanix's Code Security Works?

Using state-of-the-art static code analysis techniques, Cloudanix Code Security meticulously examines your source code. It hunts for known security vulnerabilities, potential code smells, and adherence to best practices. By offering comprehensive reports and actionable insights, Cloudanix Code Security empowers your development team to make informed decisions and craft more secure code.

Here are a few Examples of Findings:

  • SQL Injection
  • OS Command Injection
  • Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
  • Use of a Broken or Risky Cryptographic Algorithm
  • Cryptographically Insecure Hashing Algorithm

Key Capabilities

Cloudanix Code Security is a powerful tool designed to scan your source code for vulnerabilities. With this new capability, you can identify and address potential security risks in your codebase before they make their way into production.

  • In-Depth Vulnerability Detection: Cloudanix Code Security pinpoints a wide array of vulnerabilities, from common coding errors to potential threats, including but not limited to SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and sensitive data exposure. Vulnerabilities are mapped to OWASP Top 10 and SANS CWE Top 25 for easier prioritization.
  • Seamless CI Pipeline Integration: Cloudanix Code Security seamlessly integrates with popular CI/CD pipelines like GitHub Actions and Bitbucket Pipelines. This means you can automatically scan each pull request, ensuring that vulnerabilities are identified early in the development process.
  • Easy-to-Interpret Reports: Provides clear, actionable reports that highlight identified vulnerabilities and offer guidance on how to address them.
  • Streamlined Remediation: Addressing vulnerabilities in both your codebase and cloud infrastructure becomes a seamless and coordinated effort.
  • Unified Dashboard: Cloudanix dashboard provides a unified view of security insights, allowing you to assess and address vulnerabilities across your entire application stack.


Cloudanix Code Security is designed to seamlessly integrate with popular CI/CD pipelines like GitHub Actions and Bitbucket Pipelines. This means you can now incorporate robust code security checks directly into your development workflow.

By including Cloudanix Code Security in your CI pipeline, you can automatically scan your code for vulnerabilities with every commit. This ensures that potential security risks are identified and addressed early in the development process, reducing the likelihood of vulnerabilities making their way into production.

  1. Install the Cloudanix Code Security Action: Add the Cloudanix Code Security Action to your CI workflow configuration file.
  2. Configure the Action: Customize the action to suit your specific requirements, including the types of vulnerabilities you want to focus on.
  3. Automated Scans: With Cloudanix Code Security in place, every pull request will undergo a thorough security scan, providing you with timely feedback on potential vulnerabilities.
