DEV SEC OPS

Powerful software testing tools enable Dev Sec Ops

Dev Sec Ops is an approach to application security and software quality metrics that requires all parties around application development to be responsible for delivering secure software. By getting developers, security specialists and IT teams on the same page, Dev Sec Ops enables organizations to produce more secure applications without sacrificing speed or hindering innovation.

Putting the principles of Dev Sec Ops in practice requires a new approach to application testing. Traditional software testing methodologies weren’t designed for the speed and efficiency that Dev Sec Ops requires. A successful software testing methodology for Dev Sec Ops will likely rely on automation and tools that can be easily integrated into developer IDEs. The right technology will also enable developers to test for vulnerabilities throughout all stages of development processes, finding and fixing flaws at the easiest and most logical point in the SDLC.

For organizations and developers that want to support Dev Sec Ops with powerful application security testing solutions, Veracode offers a suite of cloud-based services that makes security testing simpler, more effective and more efficient.
