What Will You Learn?

Designed for CISOs, application security experts, CIOs and other software development professionals, "State of Software Security V6: Focus on Industry Verticals" analyzes data from more than 200,000 application assessments performed via our cloud-based platform over the past 18 months.

The report provides practical data to help you benchmark your AppSec program against your peers — answering key questions such as:

  • Do I have more serious vulnerabilities than my peers?

  • What percentage of vulnerabilities do my peers remediate?

  • How many of our applications should pass the OWASP Top 10 when initially assessed?

  • What are the 10 most common vulnerabilities in our vertical?

  • Which programming languages are my peers using?

Remediation Coaching Has a Big Impact

The report also reveals that organizations using Veracode’s remediation coaching services (“readout calls”) improve code security by a factor of 2.5x compared to those that choose to do it on their own. Delivered by world-class security and development experts, these on-demand services help developers understand secure coding practices and remediate vulnerabilities more quickly and efficiently.
