Application Security Buyer's Guide + Sample RFP

A practical handbook for selecting application security tools and vendors

If your software development and delivery team hasn’t implemented application security testing, you’re not alone. While many organizations have a security information and event management (SIEM) system in place, only about a third are taking steps to ensure their applications are securely designed and coded.

"90 percent of reported security incidents result from exploits against defects in the design or code of software" (The Software Engineering Institute)

There is a pressing need for application security to be baked into the development process and not bolted onto it like an afterthought. But where do you start? How do you select the best tools and vendors?
