Integrate Security Testing into PhpStorm

New State-of-the-Art Reduces Costs Typically, application security testing is performed after the source code was already committed to the source code repository. For example, a security scan is manually performed before deployment, or continuous integration is used that automatically tests the build. Our PhpStorm plugin, however, enables a new and even more efficient approach to security testing. Using our PhpStorm integration, security issues are detected where they are made – directly in the IDE.
