SARBOX COMPLIANCE

Achieve SarbOx compliance with security testing tools.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SarbOx) has created new requirements for application security testing, but the right tools can help organizations achieve SarbOx compliance more affordably and effectively.

To demonstrate SarbOx compliance, public companies must have independent auditing over their financial systems, applications and processes in order to validate the integrity of financial data. Because finances are so often managed with and automated by software today, application security testing has become an essential part of achieving SarbOx compliance. And as financial applications grow increasingly complicated and become more interconnected with other business software, managing application security testing for SarbOx compliance can easily consume a disproportionate amount of IT budgets and staff resources.

Veracode can help. By enabling companies to easily test for security flaws like sequel injection or buffer overflow throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC), Veracode enables organizations to cost-effectively manage application security risk while improving SarbOx compliance.
