How to Get Started With a Veracode Static Analysis IDE Scan Free Trial

You never want to be the developer that wrote and submitted vulnerable code into production, especially if it leads to a data breach. Yet, in many organizations that have adopted DevOps practices, application security testing is shifting left into development. It’s far faster to catch and fix security flaws while you’re coding, than trying to go back and fix everything at the end of the process.

Our data shows that increased scanning during development has a positive effect on the flaw fix rate. That makes your CISO and security team happy, but we know it’s not always welcome news for you. After all, deployment is speeding up, and many of you are worried that security testing will slow you down.

We built Veracode Static Analysis IDE Scan with you, the developer, in mind. Our goal is to enable security in your DevOps practice by integrating security testing directly into your favorite IDE. Veracode Static Analysis IDE Scan is DevOps friendly, with lightning-fast code scanning as you develop, providing instant feedback to point out any vulnerabilities in your code, and contextual remediation advice, so you can fix it immediately.

You might be thinking, “If I have to scan my code as I’m working, that’s going to slow down my development.” We say, “Not at all!” And we can prove it – that’s why we’re launching a Veracode Static Analysis IDE Scan free trial. Even better, this free trial is self-serve, so you won’t have to talk to a sales rep to get started. It’s good for 30 days, so you have plenty of time to tool around with it. And it’s a simple three-step process to get started.
