CWE (Common Weakness Enumeration)

Eliminate top CWE errors with Veracode.

The Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) is a list of weaknesses in software that can lead to security issues. While the CWE list is long, it is also prioritized by severity of risk, providing organizations and developers with a good idea about how to best secure applications.

For companies that aren’t sure where to begin when it comes to application security, addressing the top 25 CWE errors is a good place to start. These are vulnerabilities that software security experts agree are the most problematic for enterprise application security. Each of these vulnerabilities can be addressed through a variety of tools like vulnerability scanning or gray box testing. But managing these tools in-house can often be complicated and time-consuming, draining IT budgets and putting the brakes on SDLC timelines.
