Why Use Software Testing Tools?
Most companies today will experience some form of attack from criminal hackers and other malicious threats. As the enterprise network has become more secure, attackers have turned their attention to the application layer, which, according to Gartner, now contains 90 percent of all vulnerabilities. To protect the enterprise, security administrators must perform detailed software testing and code analysis when developing or buying software. Yet such code analysis can be extremely costly - on-premises software testing tools are expensive to purchase, deploy and maintain, and they can easily impair development timelines to the point where speed-to-market is compromised. That's why so many leading enterprises are turning to Veracode.
What Is a Software Testing Tool?
Software testing tools are used as part of the testing phase within the software development lifecycle (SDLC) to automate certain tasks, improve testing efficiency and discover issues that might be difficult to find using manual review alone. Veracode provides a software testing service that searches for security vulnerabilities within applications. Veracode’s software testing service performs both dynamic and static code analysis or "white box testing" and finds security vulnerabilities that include malicious code as well as the absence of functionality that may lead to security breaches. Veracode's binary scanning approach produces more accurate testing results, using methodologies developed and continually refined by a team of world-class experts.
Veracode Software Testing Tools
Veracode's cloud-based service and systematic approach deliver a simpler and more scalable solution for reducing global application-layer risk across web, mobile and third-party applications. We have been recognized as a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader since 2010. Whether you are analyzing applications developed internally or by third parties, Veracode’s software testing service enable you to quickly and cost-effectively scan software for flaws and get actionable results. As an independent and trusted provider of software assessment, Veracode enables you to better protect your enterprise without sacrificing productivity or profitability. Using an on-demand, Software-as-a-Service solution allows you to more easily control costs, paying only for the services you need. And because Veracode scans at the binary level, reviewing compiled or “byte” code rather than source code, you get an accurate and comprehensive analysis. All applications, regardless of their origin, can be scanned and reviewed by Veracode. Veracode can even assess third-party software at the binary level, without accessing source code.
