A remediation plan is key to application security testing.
While application security testing has become a central part of software development, too many organizations make the mistake of testing without a clear remediation plan.
Software testing and security analysis is only one-half of the formula for delivering secure software. Organizations must also ensure that every test includes a remediation plan that provides the time and financial resources required to fix flaws found during software testing.
Without a sound remediation plan, testing may be performed too late in the development process to allow adequate time for remediation. Budgets must include not only the expense of remediation and re-testing but the cost of procuring remediation assistance when flaws can’t be fixed easily and immediately.
Developing a superior remediation plan requires test results that not only identify flaws but also help developers understand which flaws are most dangerous and how to fix them most efficiently. That’s why, when choosing application security testing solutions, more organizations today choose to protect their applications with testing services and a remediation plan from Veracode.
