This paper details the path you must follow to find and eliminate the coding errors and design flaws that expose data and put organizations at risk. Includes details of the five major vulnerability categories and an actionable source code security review checklist. Take the path to more secure software today.
The path to creating a secure application begins by rigorously testing source code for any and all vulnerabilities, to ensure the application will not compromise, or allow others to compromise, data privacy and integrity.
For companies using custom-built, outsourced, or open source applications in-house, ensuring all current and legacy code is secure, however, will be no small challenge. Detecting and eradicating security vulnerabilities has historically been extremely difficult. Many organizations relied on manual code review, which is costly and labor-intensive, as well as penetration testing, which examines only a subset of potential application vulnerabilities in an application.
While both of these approaches have their uses, automatic software vulnerability scanning tools now allow companies to approach secure code development in a more systematic, automated, and successful manner. These automatic vulnerability scanning tools greatly improve the speed and accuracy of code review, and may be integrated seamlessly into the development lifecycle. In fact, the best tools can pinpoint each vulnerability at the precise line of code and provide detailed information about the type of flaw, the risk it poses, and how to fix it.
This white paper explores critical metrics-related questions that assume considerable significance in businesses where efficiency and speed are the norm for generating maximum value. When it comes to measurable metrics there are a whole lot of parameters that have to be explored to gauge the level of success of your business objectives. It also succinctly delves on the ‘Best Practices’ of BPM Metrics.
Security breaches are always being reported in the media but what are organisations doing about it? This white paper reveals how organisations can protect high-value assets and provide cost-effective integrated security across the entire IT department.
Today’s cybercriminals cannot wait to get their hands on confidential information. This is why organisations need to be ahead of the curve. This white paper reveals how IBM’s Intelligence Platform can add new capabilities or expand storage capacity and performance.
