2017 State of Application Security

The speed of software development is accelerating—and so are software security risks. Large software development projects that used to take years to complete have been outpaced by smaller, agile teams that deliver working software every few weeks. High-speed cross-functional DevOps teams are pushing software changes directly to production, sometimes hundreds or even thousands of times each day.

What does application security look like in a world of continuous change? What security procedures, tools, and practices are most effective in a high-velocity development program? And can agility and velocity be used to improve security? These questions and more are discussed in the SANS 2017 State of Application Security Survey.
