When much of the world went remote in 2020, digital transformation caused whiplash for organizations and development teams were no exception. The push for speedier software production in a hybrid workforce environment has resulted in the use of more third-party integrations and the need for flexible, accessible cloud infrastructures – which can quickly become a proverbial code buffet for threat actors if left unsecured.
But there’s good news for you and your team of developers: participating in an application security (AppSec) program that checks the right boxes is the frontline protection you need to write more secure code faster than before, keeping you one step ahead of the bad guys.
Strong AppSec programs and tools enable you to safeguard your software and critical infrastructures during this digital shift and beyond. With critical elements of functionality and automation that empower you to start scanning quickly and prioritize wisely, these tools help you and your team produce more secure code and keep pace with the competition. Having a strong AppSec program in place means you’re not only securing your data (and customers’ data too), but also your team will grow smarter about prioritization and reducing risky security debt as you adapt and shift.
Join this webinar with Veracode to learn more about the benefits strong AppSec programs have for development teams, how you can work efficiently with members of security to implement AppSec tools, and how this all works together to help you create more secure applications without missing a beat.
Among the issues to be addressed are:
Consider the increase of connected devices in modern manufacturing and the impact that has on the need for speed and innovation in software development.
Security should be a part of early planning phases, and AppSec tools should be highly integrated into the CI/CD toolchain in order to set your team of developers up for success.
Integrate and automate wherever possible directly into CI/CD processes, especially with tools that offer clear remediation guidance. Lean on analytics and reporting with input from Security team members to better understand successes/failures and to continue to improve your AppSec program for future projects.
The list of buzzwords goes on and on, but Artificial Intelligence (or AI) looks like it’s here to stay. This year, the latest World Quality Report reported that 86% of their respondents say that an AI offering is now a key criterion for selecting new QA solutions.
Join Kobiton CTO Frank Moyer and Product Manager Alex Drag as they discuss how AI fits into modern testing and what to expect of AI moving forward in 2021 and beyond.
Attendees will learn:
-Advantages and shortcomings of AI in testing today
-What you should consider when evaluating an AI solution
-What the future holds for AI in testing
-The best ways to get started implementing AI in your testing processes
As the practice of value stream management matures, new ways to look at it have emerged, including the kinds of platforms being used and even where in an organization the practice can be implemented. Join our panel of experts, who in a power talk last year outlined what problems value stream management can solve, to examine the explosive growth of the practice and where value stream software is going in 2021.
SD Times editor-in-chief David Rubinstein will moderate the discussion with Lance Knight, COO at ConnectALL; Eric Robertson, vice president of product at Onit; and Chris Nowak, director DevOps advisory and adoption, at HCL Software.
Today’s modern applications depend on of a substantial amount of open source components and third-party libraries, and developers acknowledge that utilizing open source allows them to focus more on unique code attributes instead of recreating what’s already been successfully established. Although organizations acknowledge a heightened level of security, license, and operational risk, unfortunately, many don’t effectively track or manage open source throughout their entire code base and cannot consistently address the widening hazards they face.
As a result, organizations desire automated, repeatable processes for open source usage, risk management, and vulnerability remediation that fit within modern development environments.
In this session, attendees will hear recommendations from Checkmarx SMEs on how to effectively implement an approach to:
In this year’s survey, we collected data about how the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing recession are changing the way respondents’ organizations think about and use open source. We explore how organizations manage their open source dependencies today, why and when their leaders encourage the use of open source, and the key benefits they get from increasing its use.
We also learned more about the open source programming languages development teams turn to most and the policies they have in place around developer contributions to open source projects.
In this report, we highlight the most interesting revelations that help us understand how to make open source work even better for development teams and the organizations they work within.
Choosing your software’s architecture is no simple task. One important consideration when doing so is the ease, or the challenges, of debugging that come with it. Whether it is a monolithic architecture or a distributed system, they both present individual challenges to the debugging process.
As we analyze this architectural spectrum, this paper will show that while they pose very different debugging challenges, all of them ultimately stem from the same source: access to data that is simple, quick, and safe to capture.
The lack of data, and therefore the need to get that data, is the underlying problem in all debugging challenges. This lack of data and the way to resolve it is comprised of three core criteria.
Why digital transformation? Why now?
For organizations trying to drive digital transformation, one of the greatest challenges is creating an org-wide culture that’s receptive to innovation. Many organizations that foster this culture successfully do so by implementing Centers of Excellence.
Check out this eBook to better understand how to successfully create centers of excellence in your organization, build a culture of innovation, and progress digital transformation initiatives.
Low-code platforms can help companies across industries improve visibility into complex processes and increase efficiency to address many supply chain challenges while also helping keep employees safe and better prepared for future disruption.
In this whitepaper, you will learn how to:
• Eliminate manual processes for true end-to-end transparency
• Gain real-time, actionable insights to quickly identify risks
• Centralize data by connecting disparate systems
• Rapidly digitize your business’s unique processes
If there is anything we have learned from this unexpected disruption, it’s that change cannot take years. To weather any disruptions in the future and stay ahead, you need your supply chain operations to be flexible.
Low-code platforms can help manufacturing companies eliminate waste and increase efficiency to address many of these challenges while also giving them a competitive advantage.
• Streamline manual processes
• Improve visibility and transparency
• Build custom solutions to fit the processes that make their businesses unique
• Gain real-time insights to solve problems immediately
Transformation is more than just tools, though. In order to remain competitive, increase profits, and become a leader within the industry, it must be an executive priority that involves all people and processes. The time is now.
How much are aging legacy systems and applications hampering your ability to deliver innovative products and services?
