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.

  • 3 critical steps for effective application 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.

  • Why this development team shifted from reactive to proactive AppSec

    As most developers are familiar, establishing trust in your product’s security is just as important as its overall quality. A single breach or security incident can have a devastating impact on all parties involved.

    That’s why many development teams are making a shift from reactive to proactive application security.

    Discover the AppSec capabilities one software company unlocked through Veracode’s security-centric production platform, earning them benefits that include:

    • A full integration of security tools into existing dev workflows
    • Expansion of their development team’s secure coding knowledge
    • And more.
