We're talking the art of secure code at Black Hat 2018

We think a high-quality and highly secure app is a work of art. As with any artistic endeavor, it takes creativity, resources, training, and talent to create secure code. Maybe it’s a little bit of stretch to compare your software developers to Picasso, but we would argue that there are a lot of similarities between creating a great piece of secure code and a great piece of art. For example, both... READ MORE

Find out about our new Dynamic Analysis.

Effective application security assesses applications across the entire software lifecycle – beyond the development phase and into production. Why is this necessary? If you’ve shifted security left, into the development process, why do you need to shift it right into production? To put it bluntly: Because people aren’t perfect, and bad guys never sleep. With the speed of today’s development... READ MORE

How to use your security resources more efficiently with developer security champions.

The enterprise challenge in generating secure code is well known: as software becomes a competitive advantage and customers expect regular updates, the need to release new features and content frequently often trumps the need to release secure code. Although that's a true conflict, it's not the full story. Psychology can play almost as big a role, with security teams often perceived by developers... READ MORE

What does it take to reach the Continuous Verified tier?

We recently announced our Veracode Verified program. To better suit the needs of organizations that are producing and updating apps at DevOps speed, we are attesting to the security of the overall development process of an application, rather than to the security of an application at one point in time. In this way, your prospects and customers can rest assured that security was embedded... READ MORE

Details on the features of our SourceClear solution

The days of developers creating every line of code from scratch are over. The intense demand for newer, better software means development speeds have become correspondingly intense. In turn, developers need to rely on the pre-built functionality in open source libraries to keep up. The problem with this practice is that it also introduces a whole new layer of vulnerabilities into organizations’... READ MORE
