With the proliferation of vulnerabilities continuously being uncovered in untested software at alarming rates, organizations are prioritizing those that are most detrimental to their application landscape. The increased adoption of DevOps, the growing maturity of application security programs, and more formalized developer training initiatives are helping organizations test and ensure the delivery of secure software. Join Tim Jarrett, Sr. Director, Product Management at Veracode, as he discusses these trends based on the recently published State of Software Security Report, 2017. Specifically he’ll cover key statistics related to topics including:
- Industry trends such as vulnerability fix rates and percent of applications with vulnerabilities
- The pervasive risk from vulnerable open source components
- How shifts in Operations and Testing practices can significantly improve the quality and security of applications
Learn best practices for measuring application portfolio risk, remediating software vulnerabilities, and working with development teams to embed these concepts into the software development lifecycle.
