With the growing popularity of DevOps, developers are increasingly tasked with security testing and vulnerability mitigation. As such, it is imperative that developers are cognizant of Application Security (AppSec) trends in order to stay competitive. We created this developer supplement to Veracode’s State of Software Security report to help developers stay on top of our most important findings surrounding secure software creation.
The data and suggestions in this report help developers anticipate likely vulnerabilities in code, and give them best practices for remediating security risks. You will learn:
- The types of coding mistakes most likely to compromise the security of your software
- Statistically backed AppSec best practices
- Why frequent assessments are crucial to a strong AppSec program
- Insight into the programming language preferences of enterprises, and how prone certain languages are to vulnerabilities
“The takeaway here for developers is that secure code infrequently happens on its own. It takes constant work to achieve.” – State of Software Security 2016: Developer View on Application Security
