Experts Raise Awareness of Application Vulnerabilities and Offer Best Practices for Developing a Successful Security Testing Programme in the Cloud
BURLINGTON near Boston, Mass. – 14 September, 2010 –Veracode, Inc., the world’s leader in cloud-based application risk management, today announced details of an upcoming webinar with independent analyst firm Bloor Research that will discuss the necessary steps for building a successful application security Programme and delivering higher-quality software to market. The session, “No Software. No Source Code. No Problem,” will discuss why security testing in the cloud is changing everything organisations took for granted about checking code for security flaws.
Who: Nigel Stanley, practice leader, IT security, Bloor Research
Matt Moynahan, CEO, Veracode
What: The explosion of malware and hacker attacks has forced enterprises to realize that application security is a surging problem. A complicating factor is the frequent use of third-party components and libraries to which enterprises have no source code. This mixed code base pushes the liability on the enterprise, resulting in an unacceptable level of security and compliance risk.
With research that found that 62percent of companies surveyed have experienced security breaches in the last 12 months that specifically exploited vulnerabilities in software, the webinar will also explore the following topics:
• How application technology changes have opened the doors to hackers
• How application security has evolved from a tool-centric approach to relying on an enterprise-wide ecosystem
• Lessons from the front lines exploring how Veracode customers are building successful application security Programmes
When: Thursday, September 16 from 3pm. – 4pm. (UK timing), 4-5pm continental European
