Secure coding best practices for developers

Cybersecurity risks are steadily increasing; meaning application security is an absolute necessity. It’s no longer sufficient to quickly scan code after writing; secure coding practices must be a part of every developer’s skill set.

This may be new for many developers, but the success of your organization’s applications depends on your ability to weave security into your code from the start.

Access this whitepaper to learn some of the best steps you can take today to have more secure coding practices, and the many risks you’ll be able to address.

  • App developers need these 3 steps for app security

    With the high output of advanced development methodologies like Agile and DevOps, security is more important than ever, and being neglected by more developers than ever. Many quantify the success of their security plans by how many code scans they’re able to fun in a day, as opposed to the number of flaws they were able to fix.

    Unfortunately, you can’t scan your way to secure code.

    To make application security truly effective at reducing the risk of a damaging breach, there are three critical steps beyond scanning to help develop more secure code. Explore those three critical steps in this whitepaper.

  • App developers need these 3 steps for app security

    Application security is essential of course, but there is lots of discussion around how to go about securing your applications. Many organizations think they are getting by just by scanning their code, or quantify success by how many scans they can run in a day, but according to some experts that it not the way to go about app security.

    To make app security truly effective, there are 3 critical steps you must take beyond scanning to develop more secure code.

    Download this white paper to learn those 3 steps and how you can get started implementing them today.
