Meet us at Black Hat booth #4840 or schedule a 1:1 demo to see how Qwiet AI can accelerate your time to secure code

Over the past few weeks, we’ve published a series of blogs related to CWEs: we’ve taken a look at the changes in the Top 25 Most Dangerous Software Weaknesses over the past year, as well as some of the vulnerabilities included on the list:

With that information in hand, what can someone in software engineering or application security do about possible security risks in their code?

Finding weaknesses and vulnerabilities

The first step toward determining how secure your application is is to find as many of the vulnerabilities that are present in your application as possible. There are various tools that you can use at different parts of the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

There is a time and place for each type of security tool. Linters are great for near-instantaneous feedback during the development process. SAST is a good option for integrating into your pull request pipeline a
