State Of Software Security Volume 9

By Veracode, Cyentia Institute


“For a long time now, SOSS has provided a reliable yardstick for the most common vulnerabilities found in software, as well as how organizations are measuring up to security industry benchmarks throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC). One thing we’ve always wanted to understand better, though, is how quickly these organizations are actually fixing flaws once they’ve been identified in application security scans. This year, we turned our data analysis up a notch by working with the data scientists at Cyentia Institute, so that we could gain better visibility into the factors that go into fixing flaws. Readers will find valuable insight on how factors like flaw severity, business criticality of applications, and exploitability of the flaws change the rate at which certain vulnerabilities are fixed.”
