When assessing the various types of application security technologies, it is important to remember that there is no silver bullet. You need to gather the strengths of multiple analysis techniques along the entire application development cycle from development to testing to production to drive down application risk. Each testing type, from static to dynamic to software composition analysis and manual pen testing, has different strengths and weaknesses and are better in different scenarios, but you wont be effective without taking advantage of them all. In addition, as industry adoption of DevSecOps practices continues to accelerate, organizations must consider how these testing techniques work in concert with this shift. Join Chris Kirsch, product leader at Veracode who will outline the various approaches to security testing and the latest innovations on the market from real-time development feedback to pipeline and policy scanning - that can support modern software development.
