Highlights from RSA Conference: Secure by Design, AI Insights, and Global Collaboration

RSA Conference 2024 brought together industry experts, practitioners, and policymakers to discuss the latest trends and challenges in cybersecurity. We showcased our commitment to CISA's Secure by Design, explored the potential of AI in risk management, and emphasized the significance of global collaboration. Here are some highlights from our time at RSA Conference, providing insights into the discussions and announcements that shape the future of cybersecurity.

Scaling DevSecOps with Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)

In the swiftly evolving landscape of AI-driven software development, DevSecOps helps strengthen application security and quality. Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) is a key tool that helps scale your DevSecOps program by facilitating continuous and accurate security tests on running applications. DAST simulates real-world attacks, enabling you to identify security weaknesses and evaluate your application's defenses in response to actual attacks.

New in Veracode Fix: Additional Language Support and Batch Fix

We’re excited to bring you two significant updates to Veracode Fix: our AI-powered security flaw remediation tool. Since we launched Fix nearly a year ago, two requests have dominated our customer feedback: We recently launched a new version of Veracode Scan for VS Code that included Fix (with more IDE’s to follow), which answered some of those requests, and now we’re updating Fix to cover more languages and a new mode that will automatically apply the top-ranked fix.

Enhancing Developer Efficiency With AI-Powered Remediation

Traditional methods of flaw remediation are not equipped with the technology to keep pace with the rapid evolution of code generation practices, leaving developers incapable of managing burdensome and overwhelming security debt. Code security is still a critical concern in software development. For instance, when GitHub Copilot generated 435 code snippets, almost 36% of them had security weaknesses, regardless of the programming language.

Speed vs Security: Striking the Right Balance in Software Development with AI

Software development teams face a constant dilemma: striking the right balance between speed and security. How is artificial intelligence (AI) impacting this dilemma? With the increasing use of AI in the development process, it's essential to understand the risks involved and how we can maintain a secure environment without compromising on speed. Let’s dive in.

Veracode Advances Cloud-Native Application Security with Longbow Acquisition

As I travel around the world meeting with customers and prospects, we often discuss the tectonic shifts happening in the industry. At the heart of their strategic initiatives, organizations are striving to innovate rapidly and deliver customer value with uncompromising quality and security, while gaining a competitive edge in the market.

Veracode Customers Shielded from NVD Disruptions

The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has almost completely stopped analyzing new vulnerabilities (CVEs) listed in its National Vulnerability Database (NVD). Through the first six weeks of 2024, NIST analyzed over 3,500 CVEs with only 34 CVEs awaiting analysis.1 Since February 13th, however, nearly half (48%) of the 7,200 CVEs received this year by the NVD are still awaiting analysis.2 The number of CVEs analyzed has dropped nearly 80% to less than 750 CVEs analyzed.

Resolving Simple Cross-Site Scripting Flaws with Veracode Fix

In the last blog on fixing vulnerabilities with Veracode Fix, we looked at SQL Injection remediation in a Java application. Since then, we have released Fix support for Python (and PHP) and launched a new VS Code plugin that includes support for Fix. It seems appropriate, therefore, to look at resolving a problem in a Python app using Veracode Fix in the VS Code IDE. This time let’s examine a simple cross-site scripting (XSS) weakness.

Security Debt: A Growing Threat to Application Security

Security debt is a major and growing problem in software development with significant implications for application security, according to Veracode's State of Software Security 2024 Report. Let’s delve a bit deeper into the scope and risk of security debt, and gain some insights for application security managers to effectively address this challenge. Security debt refers to software flaws that remain unfixed for a year or more.
