Reshift Visual Studio Code extension

Reshift has released a VS Code extension that enables developers to find vulnerabilities in their own custom code and help them remediate with rich issue descriptions within the IDE. Finding and fixing vulnerabilities in production can cost up to 30x more than earlier on in development. With the Reshift VS Code extension we help development teams save time and avoidable costs by detecting vulnerabilities early on and assisting with remediation.

Our mission at Reshift is to empower development teams to shift security left by seamlessly integrating security checks early on at the code development level. Development teams want to create software fast and release often, without having security bog them down. This is our biggest priority at Reshift. 

Our team is making security become more a part of the software development process, so teams can have confidence pushing code to production.

To align with our mission, we want to push security even further left, by enabling code security checks before developers even check in their code. Developers live in their IDE, and now the Reshift extension can work directly within VS Code.

You can now have Reshift security in your VS Code IDE, seamlessly integrating code security with a list of security checks curated by security experts. What’s more, you also get access to our database of rich developer-centric issue descriptions to quickly action remediation.

The extension is completely free for your entire team to use!
