SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TOOLS

Increase speed and security with automated software development tools.

As organizations work to protect software applications from an ever-evolving landscape of threats, automated software development tools for testing can help to improve security while enabling development teams to meet aggressive deadlines.

In a world that is increasingly dependent on mission-critical applications, secure software development is a high priority for enterprises everywhere. Yet, in a recent survey, fewer than 10% of enterprise security officers were certain that their most important applications were tested for flaws before and during production.

In too many cases, build deadlines deter the kind of comprehensive security testing that can find and fix flaws during development. That’s often because traditional software development tools for security testing are cumbersome and time-consuming to use. The result: software is either tested for flaws late in the development process, or worse – not tested at all.

Veracode’s automated software testing provide an easy solution to this pervasive problem. With comprehensive software development tools for testing applications from inception through production, Veracode enables organizations to produce better software faster and more cost-efficiently.

Software development tools for testing from Veracode.

Veracode software development tools and application security solutions protect the software that enterprises rely on every day. With Veracode, development teams can buy, build and assemble applications with greater confidence that they are free from vulnerabilities and flaws.

Veracode’s software development tools are built on a unified platform that combines automation, speed and process to add security testing throughout the SDLC. With Veracode’s SaaS-based software development tools, organizations can test software at any point in the development process where it is easy and cost-efficient to do so.

Veracode’s comprehensive software development tools.

Veracode provides a suite of software development tools that provide multiple approaches to finding and remediating flaws.

Veracode Vendor Application Security Testing provides software development tools that can assess the security of third-party applications without needing access to source code.

  • Static Analysis tools scan software from the inside out, reviewing compiled binaries for common vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting and SQL injection.
  • Veracode Greenlight provides developers with immediate feedback on potential flaws as code is being written, running in the background of the developer’s preferred IDE. Greenlight also enables unit testing on microservices as they are being developed.
  • Veracode Web Application Scanning (WAS) discovers and inventories all external websites and applications, running lightweight scans on thousands of sites in parallel to identify and prioritize flaws for remediation. WAS combines static analysis and blackbox testing techniques for a comprehensive approach to security testing.
  • Veracode Software Composition Analysis offers tools for identifying flaws in open source and commercial applications.
