RSAC Fireside Chat: Qwiet AI leverages graph-database technology to reduce AppSec noise

AppSec has never been more challenging.

By the same token, AppSec technology is advancing apace to help companies meet this challenge.

At RSAC 2024, I sat down with Bruce Snell, cybersecurity strategist at Qwiet.ai, to hear a break down about how Qwiet has infused it’s preZero platform, with graph-database capabilities to deliver SAST, SCA, container scanning and secrets detection in a single solution. For a full drill down, please give the accompanying podcast a listen.

We also had a lively sidebar about the lessons security vendors are learning as they race to integrate GenAI and LLM technology into their respective solutions. Like many vendors I spoke to in San Francisco, Qwiet has trial tested several general-purpose and security-specific LLM tools.

“Utilizing the right LLM is extremely important,” Snell observes. “We intentionally built our auto fix tool so that we can replace the LLM if we need to, because we didn’t want to get locked in and then a few months later find out that there’s another LLM that handles this more efficiently.

“It’s like the old days of antivirus where one vendor would say, ‘Well, we detect 97 percent,’ and another would say, ‘Oh, we detect 98 percent.’ GenAI and LLMs are definitely in the space right now, and we want to make sure that we future-proof whatever we put together. And the only way to do that is to be modular.”

The pace of change notches higher. I’ll keep watch and keep reporting.
