Today, application security professionals sink hours upon hours into scanning applications and working with developers to fix simple bugs rather than applying their security expertise to higher-impact, business-critical issues. However, there are innovative methods for performing static analysis of application code that results in secure, higher-quality software at a significantly lower cost and level of effort.
This whitepaper reviews an approach to developing secure software from the earliest stages of the development process. The benefits of this approach include:
- Reduced Risk: Developers can fix security vulnerabilities before they are committed to the code base.
- Decreased Costs: Enables developers to fix defects in real-time.
- Increased efficiency: This approach provides a tight feedback loop by alerting developers to each issue and immediately showing them how to fix it.
