SOFTWARE TESTING

Software testing solutions that balance speed and security.

Software testing can create a certain tension between Speed and Security for developers. Charged with delivering business innovation to the market, developers are driven to release new applications quickly. That can sometimes lead to less-than-ideal software testing protocols as development teams work to meet aggressive timelines. Occasionally, the need for faster development may lead organizations to cut corners – for example, securing only internal development work while leaving vendor, mobile and open source applications exposed.

This kind of ad-hoc approach to software testing, however, tends to lead to adverse results. Threats to the application layer are the cause in more than half of all successful attacks today, and it’s easy to see why: four out of five applications fail their first security test.

For development organizations looking to implement a comprehensive approach to software testing that won’t adversely impact speed, CA Veracode has the answer.
