SECURE APPLICATIONS

The challenges of building secure applications quickly.

For development teams racing to meet build deadlines, the need to deliver applications on time often trumps the need to deliver secure applications. Traditional methods of application security testing tend to hinder the pace of development, pressuring teams to cut corners or to fail to fully test code from all sources. As a result, only one in five applications on average pass their first security test. This creates a great deal of risk at a time when attacks on the application layer are responsible for more than half of all security breaches.

For organizations that want the ability to deliver secure applications on time, Veracode provides a suite of web based application testing services that help to integrate testing into every step of the software development lifecycle.
