We're excited to bring two industry veterans back together again for an insightful and interactive discussion on the state of application security today. Join Wendy Nather, Security Research Director at 451 Research and Josh Corman, CTO at Sonatype as they share their perspectives on the changing landscape of application development and how this is impacting common application security approaches.

With the mounting pressures to build high quality software in short order, we've seen a dramatic shift from source code to component-based development. With 90% of a typical application now assembled using open source components, its time to ensure our current application security tools help prevent and protect against an open source security gap.

Join this online discussion to learn how you can:

  • Balance spend and risk in application security, by focusing on the neglected 90%
  • Avoid future 'Heartbleed' vulnerabilities with better component visibility
  • Make a big impact with little effort by not using components with known vulnerabilities
  • Avoid elective risk and rework by automating policies earlier in the software development lifecycle

New vulnerabilities are being identified everyday giving hackers new entry points and multiplying our risk. The good news is addressing component security is the easiest and least expensive of all application security methods. Start today by avoiding this unnecessary risk with a more holistic and effective application security strategy.
