A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?
Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.
The Business Case for Data Protection, conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Ounce Labs, is the first study to determine what senior executives think about the value proposition of corporate data protection efforts within their organizations. In times of shrinking budgets, it is important for those individuals charged with managing a data protection program to understand how key decision makers in organizations perceive the importance of safeguarding sensitive and confidential information.

This white paper examines how the next generation of source code analysis tools are moving high-quality source code analysis to the developer's desktop and performing it at the earliest point in the development cycle - before code check-in. Learn why the developer must be an integral part of the process of identifying, fixing and preventing bugs from reaching the code stream.
This webinar explores 12 of the most common security traps in Java by examining the causes of security failures in modern Java–based applications. Approaching security with an “outside in” style, we look at vulnerabilities from a developer’s perspective, focusing on the source code.
Matt Rose, Senior Software Security Consultant at Fortify Software, shares his findings from a year analyzing millions of lines of code. He unveils his top ten most common vulnerabilities and provides detailed examples of each. These technical examples come from his experience working with fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and major ISVs.
