3 critical steps for effective application security

With the high output of advanced development methodologies like Agile and DevOps, security is more important than ever, and being neglected by more developers than ever. Many quantify the success of their security plans by how many code scans they’re able to fun in a day, as opposed to the number of flaws they were able to fix.

Unfortunately, you can’t scan your way to secure code.

To make application security truly effective at reducing the risk of a damaging breach, there are three critical steps beyond scanning to help develop more secure code. Explore those three critical steps in this whitepaper.
