Code Dx: A Software Vulnerability Correlation and Management System

Most computer security incidents can be traced back to weaknesses in software that were inadvertently put there when the code was developed. Attackers can–and very often do–find and exploit such weaknesses as a means to attack organizations’ applications. Information security has focused primarily on network security and less on securing the software that resides on networks and poses risks. Numerous Application Security Testing (AST) tools help software developers and security analysts find vulnerabilities during all stages of the software development lifecycle, but many don’t use these tools until it’s too late.
