New Livestream – Enhance Code Safety: Unveiling IntelliJ IDEA’s New Exploitable Path Feature

Updated on 15/12/2023.

On December 14, 2023, we hosted our IntelliJ IDEA LiveStream with Ori Bendet and Yaroslav Russkih to learn about secure coding within IntelliJ IDEA.

Session abstract

In the dynamic realm of application development, developers frequently encounter a barrage of alerts during the coding process. This constant stream of notifications, ranging from bug fixes to security alerts, can significantly detract from their primary focus – writing efficient, clean code.

In our upcoming webinar, we delve into how the innovative feature of exploitable path functionality within IntelliJ IDEA, powered by Checkmarx, is revolutionizing this landscape. This session will explore how this integration not only enhances the safety of the code but also streamlines the development process. By prioritizing the remediation of the most critical vulnerabilities, developers can concentrate on what they do best: crafting quality software.

Join us to learn how to become a more effective developer by focusing only on pivotal vulnerabilities in your application. This approach ensures that your time is spent where it matters most, enhancing both productivity and security in your development workflow.

Asking questions

Ori and Yaroslav will try to answer all of your questions during the session. If we run out of time, we’ll do our best to address any remaining questions afterwards and publish the answers in a follow-up blog post.
