Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

Today's test data management (TDM) solutions force teams to work with compromised data sets, and push testing to too late in the software development lifecycle. The end result is rework, delayed releases, and costly bugs that cripple production systems. Furthermore, prevailing approaches to test data management - including subsetting, synthetic data, shared environments, and standalone masking--represent flawed solutions that fail across one or more key dimensions.

Web Application Threats Are Evolving. Are Your Security Efforts Keeping Pace? Today, Web application security threats are not only becoming more abundant than ever, but also more difficult to detect, and more complex to solve. Many organizations are responding to these unique vulnerabilities with traditional network security approaches. However, sophisticated Web applications threats require a more sophisticated security strategy. What’s worked in the past won’t necessarily work today; and what’s more, Web application security requires a comprehensive solution, not simply a series of a la carte provisions. For detailed steps toward improving your Web application security strategy, download the VeriSign® Enterprise Security Services white paper, Best Practices That Improve Web Application Security.

For many companies, in particular in industries like pharmaceuticals, software development, or entertainment, their intellectual property is more valuable than any physical asset. And with the increasing need to collaborate with external business partners to accelerate product life cycles and enhance innovation, there is a greater risk for sensitive information to be compromised.
In this 6-page white paper, discover the benefits of how the right inter-enterprise collaboration tool can ensure secure document sharing and team collaboration, and what to keep in mind as you look for a provider.
Enterprises understand the importance of securing web applications to protect critical corporate and customer data. What many don't understand, is how to implement a robust process for integrating security and risk management throughout the web application.
Implementing source code vulnerability testing in the software development life cycle. Finding and fixing security issues early is an application project can help reduce development costs while improving software quality. Source code security tools implemented and used across the software development life cycle are known to provide such results.

This guide/primer serve as an introductory how-to guide on outsourced software testing for business heads as well as software project managers. It first places testing within the content of total product life cycle and then describes the sequential stages within testing program, and how these stages can run parallel with the other development stages.
ALM is much more than just writing code. All three aspects—governance, development, and operations are important. Maximizing the value of the applications we create means doing all three aspects of ALM well. Achieving this goal isn’t easy, especially when today’s ALM tools aren’t as well integrated as they could be. Yet there’s no way around it: Taking a broad, holistic view of ALM is essential for improving this critical business process.
