SOFTWARE QUALITY METRICS

Improving software quality metrics with application security testing.

Software quality metrics are a vital tool in helping to protect applications from attack and developing software that is more secure. From data on production incidents and customer problems to defect density and mean time to failure, software quality metrics can help to ensure the delivery of applications that can withstand the growing number of cyber attacks.

A powerful software testing methodology is the key to managing and scoring well on software quality metrics. By embedding security testing into every phase of the software development lifecycle (SDLC), development teams can cost-effectively improve software quality while not slowing development timelines or hindering innovation.

The challenge for development teams is finding the right desktop, mobile and web application testing tools. Software testing technology must be intuitive and easy to use, enabling developers to maintain their focus on meeting short development deadlines. That’s why so many organizations and development teams choose application security solutions from Veracode to improve software quality metrics and security audits.

Managing software quality metrics with Veracode.

Veracode application security testing technology helps organizations to protect the software they depend on most. Built on a cloud-based platform, our on-demand testing services offer a simpler and more scalable way to increase application security, enhance the resiliency of a global application infrastructure, and improve software quality metrics.

Our testing solutions combine multiple analysis techniques, including static analysis, dynamic analysis, behavioral analysis for mobile applications, manual penetration testing and Web application discovery and monitoring. Analysis is optimized for low false positives and results are based on severity to enable developers to fix the most severe flaws first.

Solutions for enhancing software quality metrics.

To help organizations improve software quality metrics, we offer a suite of solutions that includes:

  • Veracode Static Analysis, a solution to assess applications and software quality metrics across a broad range of languages and frameworks, without the need for source code.
  • Veracode Greenlight, an instant scanning solution that runs in the background of a developer’s IDE to scan code as it is written and provide remediation guidance in context.
  • Veracode Software Composition Analysis, a solution that identifies and manages vulnerabilities in ope source components and commercial code.
  • Veracode Web Application Scanning, a web vuln scanner service that discovers, tests and monitors all web applications, even the ones that IT teams may have lost track of.
