eBook: How Manual Application Vulnerability Management Delays Innovation and Increases Business Risk

Traditional Application Security Tools Lack Visibility Across the Attack Surface

When security becomes an impediment to development, security testing gets skipped to maintain delivery targets—often allowing vulnerable code to reach production. This vicious cycle increases the risk of successful cyberattacks that cause operational disruption, data breaches, and brand damage—not to mention regulatory compliance penalties.

The problem is that many traditional testing tools use brute force for vulnerability identification. When used in a modern DevOps environment, they show many critical limitations. These include:

        • Focus on lines of code, which causes missed vulnerabilities (false negatives)
        • Overlook code execution paths that expose API risks
        • Incur high volumes of inaccurate detections (false positives) that waste developer time

This eBook explores how legacy approaches to application security testing lack the visibility and accuracy to protect modern applications—forcing developers to spend significant time on remediation.
