Why use Software Testing Tools?
Most companies today experience some form of attacks 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, according to Gartner, now contains 90 percent of all vulnerabilities. To protect the enterprise, security administrators must perform detailed software testing and code analysis when developing or buying software. Yet such code analysis can be extremely costly - on-premises software testing tools are expensive to purchase, deploy, and maintain, and they can easily impair development timelines to the point where speed-to-market is compromised. That's why so many leading enterprises are turning to highly effective and cost-efficient software testing tools from Veracode.
What is a Software Testing Tool?
Software Testing tools are used as part of the testing phase within the software development lifecycle (SDLC) to automate certain tasks, improve testing efficiency, and discover issues that might be difficult to find using manual review alone. Veracode provides software testing tools that search for security vulnerabilities within your applications. Veracode’s software testing tool performs both dynamic and static code analysis and finds security vulnerabilities that include malicious code as well as the absence of functionality that may lead to security breaches. Veracode's binary scanning approach produces more accurate testing results, using methodologies developed and continually refined by a team of world-class experts.
