Software security varies greatly

  • Chris Wysopal


Veracode has analyzed more than 9,000 applications over the past 18 months, across 40 different industry sectors. These applications are both internally developed enterprise applications and those purchased by enterprises from software vendors. We measured the security quality of third-party software from large and small software vendors and compared the security quality of soft-ware written different languages for different industry sectors. The paper will show that there are significant differences in the quantity and types of vulnerabilities in software due to differences in where the software was developed, the type of software it is, in what language it was developed, and for what type of business the software was developed for.
