Software code security protects the enterprise
The enterprise today is under attack from criminal hackers and other malicious threats. As the enterprise network has become more secure, attackers have turned their attention to the application layer, which now contains 90 percent of all vulnerabilities, according to Gartner. To protect the enterprise, security administrators must perform detailed software code security analysis when developing or buying software. Yet such software code security analysis can be extremely costly—on-premises software solutions are expensive to purchase, deploy, and maintain, and they can easily impair development timelines to the point where speed-to-market is compromised.
By reviewing internally developed applications before they are deployed and third-party software before it is purchased, enterprises can find and fix a software vulnerability before it can be exploited for malicious purposes. The key to achieving superior software code security is to find a solution that can review large amounts of code as needed, in order to meet development timelines. A superior solution will also be cost-efficient, allowing the enterprise to optimize its security resources on the most significant threats. For many leading enterprises, Veracode offers the most effective and cost-efficient code security solution in the industry today.
Achieve greater software code security with Veracode
Veracode offers an innovative and cost-effective solution for enterprises seeking greater software code security. Veracode is an automated, on-demand, application security testing solution, built on a Software-as-a-Service model and accessed through an online analysis platform. As an outsourced service, Veracode can be easily integrated into the software development life cycle in any enterprise—developers in globally distributed teams can quickly access Veracode's code security solution, submit code for review and quickly get prioritized and actionable results. Because Veracode doesn't require the purchase of any hardware or software, companies are freed from the need to constantly update and maintain expensive security applications. That means developers' time and security spending can be focused where it is really needed—on finding and fixing flaws in software.
Optimize security resources with comprehensive software code security analysis
One of the keys to Veracode's successful approach to code security is binary analysis. By scanning compiled or "byte" code at the binary level rather than reviewing source code, Veracode provides complete analysis. Binary analysis includes all analysis techniques—static, dynamic, and manual. Where other tools that scan only source code are incomplete, Veracode can analyze an entire application—not just the internally developed software, but third-party libraries as well, since any issues concerning proprietary source code are circumvented through binary analysis. Whether you are assessing the security of software you are purchasing, evaluating code developed offshore, reviewing software as part of a potential merger and acquisition negotiation, or analyzing internally developed software for security and quality, Veracode can help you achieve greater security with fewer costs and less operational burden.
