Today, software developers and Application Security (AppSec) teams are being pressured to do more with less. The marching orders are simple, “make the software you develop and release as secure as possible—for the lowest viable cost”. This in turn often leads developers and AppSec teams to introduce Application Security Testing (AST) solutions that often fail to deliver the desired results due to a list of unexpected outcomes. Software security is paramount and application security scans, vulnerability detection, and bug remediation are critical to effectively secure the software your organization develops. This eBook highlights 10 factors to consider when organizations embed AST solutions into their software development pipelines, and it provides straightforward recommendations on what organizations should consider when investigating various AST vendors, solutions, and approaches.
