How AppSec can reduce vulnerabilities and achieve compliance - leaving them free to tackle larger beasts

There’s a seemingly never ending cycle between AppSec and software development teams. AppSec finds the same old flaws when scanning software, which are then bounced back to the development teams to fix the code, but without the context of why the security issue is actually an issue, or specific guidance on how to avoid it in the future.

The resulting ‘catch-22’ situation means both AppSec and development teams spend unnecessary time and effort in finding, reporting and (hopefully) fixing vulnerabilities that could be quashed at the start of the software development lifecycle (SDLC), if only developers knew how. Instead, the same mistakes continue to be made and the same vulnerabilities continue to arise.

This paper explores ways in which AppSec can:

  • Reduce risk
  • Comply with industry standards
  • Create a more efficient and a positive security culture

This is achievable by enabling developers with the right skills to write quality, secure code from the very start of the Software Development Lifecycle. Download the whitepaper to learn more.
