Guide to Application Security: What to Look For and Why

If your organization does software development in-house, there are a myriad of development workflows and processes to choose from.

  • Which AppSec tools work where in the SDLC?
  • Should you use containers or develop code in the cloud?
  • If you’re a CISO, how does DevSecOps affect software security and help provide tangible savings in lead times to prevent a major exploit?
  • How should you evaluate and select application security tools, and how should you partner with your development teams?

If you’d like to learn more about application security and how to leverage it in enterprise application development, but don’t know where to start, our new white paper Guide to Application Security will give you an overview of what to look for and why.

Starting with a basic introduction to common terminology (waterfall, agile, DevOps, DevSecOps), this white paper explains the types of development workflows and tools that developers need to stay productive, while also ensuring that their code is secure. We describe different types of AppSec tools (SAST, DAST, IAST) along with guidance on when and why to use each tool versus the others. Download the free white paper.
