Over the past few months, our collective fascination with AI has reached unprecedented heights, leading to an influx of information and discussions on its potential implications. It seems that wherever we turn, AI dominates the conversation. AI has captivated the imaginations of tech enthusiasts, researchers, and everyday individuals alike. At the tender age of 11, I received my very first computer, the legendary ZX Spectrum. Looking back, it's hard to believe how much has changed since then.

Ten represents the completion of a cycle and the beginning of a new one, as there are ten digits in our base-10 number system. We've scanned nearly 140 trillion lines of code, so we can’t help but pick up on the one and the zero in our exciting announcement. It's the tenth publication of the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Application Security Testing (AST), and we are pleased to announce we are a Leader for the tenth consecutive time.

I look back on L0pht’s testimony before Congress in 1998 with a mix of pride and reflection. It’s been twenty-five years since our group of hackers (or vulnerability researchers, if you will) stepped up to raise awareness about the importance of internet security in front of some of the world’s most powerful lawmakers. This event marked the beginning of a long journey towards increased cybersecurity awareness and implementation of measures to protect our digital world.

AI coding is here, and it’s transforming the way we create software. The use of AI in coding is actively revolutionizing the industry and increasing developer productivity by 55%. However, just because we can use AI in coding doesn't mean we should adopt it blindly without considering the potential risks and unintended consequences.

Technology is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it can make new experiences possible and elevate productivity. On the other hand, it introduces new threats and attack vectors; and it can widen the gap even further between our ability to produce software and our ability to secure it. Getting faster at creating and finding security flaws does not make us faster at fixing them; data shows us that one in four vulnerabilities remain open well over a year after first discovery.

With a comprehensive AppSec program, you want to understand your entire development, security, and application footprint so you can roll out consistent tools and processes. As a result, only a portion of your applications are covered, leaving vulnerabilities unprotected. And blind spots are clouding visibility into risk reduction efforts, making it difficult to report on progress throughout your organization.

    Today, most organizations are in a race to deliver new, innovative software before their competitors. In turn, they have gone from bi-annual software releases to daily, hourly, or even by-the-minute releases. To keep up with these rapid deployments, security has had to shift from being a late-stage blocker, to an integrated part of the development process. Developers have been doing their best to implement these security measures, but since their performance is often tied to the rate of deployments, speed tends to take precedence. As a security professional, what are some steps you can take so that security doesn't take a back seat to speed?

    Veracode delivers the application security solutions and services today’s software-driven world requires. Veracode’s unified platform assesses and improves the security of applications from inception through production so that businesses can confidently innovate with the web and mobile applications they build, buy and assemble as well as the components they integrate into their environments.

    Veracode’s powerful cloud-based platform, deep security expertise, and systematic, policy-based approach provide enterprises with a simpler and more scalable way to reduce application-layer risk across their global software infrastructures.

    The Veracode Solution:

    • Overcoming DevSecOps Challenges: Innovating through software holds many promises but also bears risks. AppSec programs often struggle with the same problems:
      • Some solutions are hard to manage and scale.
      • Developers are not empowered to fix security issues.
      • Security teams lack bandwidth to manage DevSecOps programs.
      Veracode addresses all of these challenges with a unique combination of automated application analysis in the pipeline, plus DevSecOps expertise for developers and security professionals, all delivered through a scalable SaaS platform.
    • Delivered Through SaaS: Our SaaS model delivers a better, more scalable service at a lower cost. Because we've analyzed over 10 trillion lines of code, Veracode is able to provide the fastest path to accuracy - without tuning. Our expertise is based on analyzing customer programs for over a decade.
    • Application Analysis: Veracode simplifies AppSec programs by combining five application security analysis types in one solution, all integrated into the development pipeline.
    • Developer Enablement: Most AppSec programs forget that there is only one team that can fix security findings: the development team. Veracode provides developers with security feedback in their IDE in seconds as they are writing code, helping them learn on the job.
    • AppSec Governance: AppSec programs can only be successful if all stakeholders value and support them. That’s why Veracode helps security teams to demonstrate the value of AppSec.
