With the threat landscape only growing more sophisticated, companies are under a lot of pressure to ensure that the software applications they employ are completely secure.

This process involves a number of step, including deploying a security development lifecycle (SDL) and secure coding. The problem, of course, is that software is being created everywhere in the world with a range of safety measures in place - from cautious to who cares.

We dig deep to uncover the optimal processes and speak with experts to gain insights.
