Part of the reason for the stagnation is that software development is READ MORE

  • As we look toward the future, it is becoming critical that development organizations are not only agile and flexible but – just as important – secure. In turn, security and development need to work together more closely than ever before.

  • The transition from DevOps to DevSecOps requires security professionals to have a whole new understanding of development processes, priorities, tools, and painpoints. It’s no longer feasible for security professionals to get by with a superficial understanding of how developers work.

  • Veracode’s SaaS-native platform has scanned more than 10 trillion lines of code for security defects – that breaks down to more than 4 million applications, with 1 million of those scanned in the last year alone. By scanning in the Veracode platform, our customers benefit from the convenience of running programs, not systems, and developers free up much-needed processing power so they can READ MORE

  • In a recent Veracode webinar on the subject of making the business case for AppSec, Colin Domoney, DevSecOps consultant, introduced the idea of using benchmarking to rally the troops around your AppSec cause.

If you're lagging, that's probably a good reason to further invest READ MORE

  • It’s the 10th anniversary of our State of Software Security (SOSS) report! This year, like every year, we dug into our data from a recent 12-month period (this year we analyzed 85,000 applications, 1.4 million scans, and nearly 10 million security findings), but we also took a look back at 10 years of software security. With a decade’s worth of analysis about software vulnerabilities and the best READ MORE
