WEB BASED APPLICATION TESTING

Building secure applications quickly with web-based application testing.

For development teams that want to improve application security without slowing development timelines, web-based application testing solutions from CA Veracode can help.

As attacks on the application layer continue to evolve and multiply, development teams face greater pressure to deliver more secure applications. Yet the demands of software testing often conflict with the pressure to deliver applications quickly, especially when security testing tools are difficult and time-consuming to use. Faced with imminent build deadlines, development teams are often tempted to cut corners on application testing, often by only testing applications developed internally and leaving open source, third-party and mobile components out of the mix.

CA Veracode resolves the tension between speed and security with a suite of comprehensive web-based application testing solutions. By integrating software testing and security assessment into every phase of the SDLC, CA Veracode enables developers to deliver more secure applications while meeting accelerated timelines.
