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.

  • Improve the ROI of your application security process

    No one is investing in application security just for the fun of it. You need to know how your applications are being improved by it, and if you’re seeing a return on your investment.

    But before you try to measure that return, are you doing everything possible to amplify the value of your application security? Many aren’t.

    Jump into this whitepaper to learn strategies for improving the effectiveness of your application security process, from developer training, to remediation coaching, automated testing, and more.

  • Why this development team shifted from reactive to proactive AppSec

    As most developers are familiar, establishing trust in your product’s security is just as important as its overall quality. A single breach or security incident can have a devastating impact on all parties involved.

    That’s why many development teams are making a shift from reactive to proactive application security.

    Discover the AppSec capabilities one software company unlocked through Veracode’s security-centric production platform, earning them benefits that include:

    • A full integration of security tools into existing dev workflows
    • Expansion of their development team’s secure coding knowledge
    • And more.
