LOS ALTOS, Calif., Jan. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Contrast Security (Contrast), the code security platform built for developers and trusted by security, today announced its developer portal, Developer Central, debuted as a 2022 DevPortal Award finalist for Best Onboarding within the Developer Experience category. A world-class jury of respected industry experts named Developer Central one of two finalists for Best Onboarding out of twelve nominees representing major brands such as Kroger, Cloudflare, Fastly, and Gov.UK.

Launched in June 2022, Contrast’s Developer Central gives developers easy access to CodeSec ’s easy to install tool that makes code security simple and efficient for developers. CodeSec delivers quick scan times, market-leading accuracy, actionable results and seamless integration. In only three clicks, users can download, authenticate and start scanning with ease. Once a developer has created an account, they are given instant access to CodeSec’s open source code and custom-developed code as well as serverless scanning and Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) capabilities.


According to the DevPortal Award jury, the Contrast Security Developer Central presents onboarding resources in a fresh and dynamic way that tries to pull developers in. The portal provides a rich set of onboarding resources that consider different use cases.

“It is an honor to be named a DevPortal 2022 Award finalist for Best Onboarding, especially since it’s our first year applying. I want to thank our team who has been tirelessly making additions and updates to the Developer Central’s UX [user experience] and UI [user interface] to make it more visually appealing and enhance its usability and ease of use,” said Steve Wilson, Chief Product Officer at Contrast Security. “Our mission is to empower security and development teams to get secure code moving - and to do that - we understand the importance of delivering resources that can help developers secure code confidently.”

Contrast recently announced the launch of its developer-focused security education program, Contrast Secure Code Learning Hub, and its developer-centered community forum, Contrast Community, both created to mitigate vulnerable coding.


The DevPortal Awards details that good onboarding in a developer portal starts with transparent steps to registration and granting access that show what the APIs are about, how they work, how developers can start integrating and where they can find additional resources. They note that it is important to give just the right amount of information to build confidence and inspiration as this is to make a first impression and create a great user experience.
