Quality & Security Vulnerability Detection

With our lives moving online in the last decade, the value of what can be stolen or hacked has risen exponentially. This leads to a very high pressure on software and service providers to develop systems with zero vulnerabilities against such attacks. Sadly, in most of the cases, such vulnerabilities are only discovered once the code runs in real time and interacts with different parts of the system. But, what if we could detect security vulnerabilities in real time as our developers code? 

Some of the topics covered include:

  • How security issues are created and can be detected before release
  • The major security threats that organizations face
  • Early detection and prevention mechanisms to leverage
  • Guiding development teams to uphold security
