By Jessica Hawks July 9, 2019

Summer’s longer days and slower pace invite us to pick up a book, follow our questions, and try our hand at something new. At Veracode, I get the chance to talk with our developers about the experiences that led them to the work they do today. How did they begin to cultivate the security-mindedness that they bring to their coding? Was it a book they stumbled upon, a salient moment in the wake of... READ MORE

Shakespeare. Brontë. Dickens. In literature, the classics have long been a staple of summer reading lists. Computer security has its own share of classics – reference points that serve as a foundation for understanding the field’s ever-changing chessboard of attack and defense. This list of computer security summer reading can be enjoyed either lounging on the beach with sand beneath your toes,... READ MORE

Live From Gartner Security & Risk Mgmt Summit: Pair Security Trainings With Technical Controls

Live from Gartner Security and Risk Mgmt Summit

“We often forget that technology cannot solve the world’s problems.” That was one of the opening lines of Joanna Huisman’s session “Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training” at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, MD. While her Magic Quadrant doesn’t address DevSecOps trainings, I took away some valuable lessons that also apply to this area.... READ MORE

Your code is powerful, clever, and elegant—but is it secure? More than ever, code makes the world go 'round. From smart home thermostats to critical infrastructure to integrated clinical environments in hospitals, code runs so much of what touches our lives every day. Sometimes we are explicitly aware that we are interacting with software but increasingly we are not—code runs quietly amid the... READ MORE

Vulnerable components in software lurk everywhere. At the same time, business competitiveness hinges on the speed and quality of software delivery. So, how does an enterprise not only keep up with application security, but also thrive despite the threats posed by risks in their software? A software composition analysis (SCA) solution can help organizations identify known vulnerabilities from open... READ MORE

Java crypto code base now modularized

To complement my recent Java Crypto blog series ("How to get Started Using Java Cryptography Securely", "Cryptographically Secure Pseudo-Random Number Generator (CSPRNG)", "Encryption and Decryption in Java Cryptography", "Message Digests, aka Hashing Functions"), I have been referencing corresponding working code on the GitHub repository. I am happy to announce a brand-new, shiny, modularized,... READ MORE

As I stated in my previous post, in 2012 we started a transition to Agile. Because Veracode was and is always constructively dissatisfied with our current state and we have a culture that embraces learning, we were eager to find a better way. Our internal champion, Tom Hickman, had done this before and he proved himself a great coach and mentor. I will forever be grateful for his guidance. There... READ MORE

Software Quality Is a Competitive Differentiator

By Maria Loughlin July 25, 2018

One of the ironies of DevOps is that while the methodology supports faster and more automated software production, it doesn't boost code quality unless quality is a focus for the software team. As more than a few business leaders have discovered, gaining a competitive edge in the digital economy requires a more concentrated and comprehensive approach. It's no secret that software code powers our... READ MORE

Get tips and advice on open source library use at our Virtual Summit.

There has been a fundamental shift in the way code is developed in the past 15 to 20 years. Today, developers do far more re-using of existing code than creating code from scratch. Taking advantage of the millions of open source libraries available has become standard operating procedure. And this new model comes with tremendous benefits – both for developers, and for the business – allowing both... READ MORE

Details on Veracode's integrations with defect-tracking systems

Software development deadlines are getting shorter. Business requirements are getting more complex, and cybersecurity threats are becoming more real. According to the Accenture report on 2018 State of Cyber Resilience, the average number of targeted attacks has more than doubled between 2017 and 2018. The good news is that security teams are adapting to these constant threats, with the targeted... READ MORE
