New White Paper From Code Dx® Addresses Concerns About Software Vulnerabilities as Part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month

White Paper Provides Introduction to Application Security Testing

NORTHPORT, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 19, 2015) - Code Dx, Inc., a provider of a robust suite of fast and affordable tools that help software developers, testers and security analysts find, prioritize and manage software vulnerabilities, today released a white paper on Application Security Testing (AST) as part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (October 2015). With 90 percent of reported security problems resulting from weaknesses in applications, according to Build Security In (BSI), this white paper provides an introduction to AST.

The white paper, "Finding Software Vulnerabilities Before Hackers Do," provides insight into:

  • What is Application Security Testing?
  • Difference between Quality vs. Security
  • Types of AST Methodologies/Tools
  • Limited Code Coverage
  • Key Players in the AST Market
  • How to Educate Key Stakeholders about AST

"Application Security is one of the fastest growing areas in cybersecurity, but many CISOs, security analysts, applications developers and testers are still trying to figure out how to assess software for vulnerabilities -- an area known as Application Security Testing," said Anita D'Amico, Ph.D., CEO for Code Dx. "The goal of this white paper is to help educate the market on AST, why it is so critical and what tools are available to help limit the vulnerabilities found in software applications."
