Static Testing

Static testing lets you find and fix software flaws faster

In a software-driven world, static testing can help you identify and fix vulnerabilities in business-critical applications before attackers can find them.

With static testing (also known as white box testing), an application’s source code or compiled binary is evaluated for security vulnerabilities and coding flaws. Static testing is an ideal application security testing tool early in the development process because it can be used effectively while code is still being written. One of the great benefits of static testing is that it can identify the exact lines where a weakness or flaw exists in the code.

While static testing can significantly enhance application security assessment, it can be costly and time-consuming to manage. When a white box test is not configured carefully, it can return numerous false positives that take significant time to track and address.

That’s why, when choosing white box testing tools, more organizations today are turning to automated static testing from Veracode.
