Having well defined and easily understood security policies in place makes it easier to deliver secure applications. However, creating these policies, testing against them and then knowing what actions to take in order to mitigate the risks isn’t always straightforward. SD Elements has integrated the Veracode platform to offer a solution that allows software development teams to create secure development policies and then automatically test applications against these requirements. Through an easy to follow, five step processes, organizations will gain insight into which requirements:
- failed verification: A vulnerability was discovered
- passed verification: A vulnerability was not discovered, and Veracode can generally find this kind of vulnerability in supported languages / frameworks
- partially passed verification: Veracode can find some but not all instances of a vulnerability
- not covered by Veracode: These need to be manually tested
The integration substantially improves the ability for development teams to understand application risk and build secure applications. This is the first time SD Elements has integrated a 3rd party platform to offer a comprehensive list of potential vulnerabilities as well as measures developers can take to counter these risks. Additional information on How to Automatically Verify Security Requirements using the integrated products, can be found on the SD Element blog.
