The Power of Hybrid Application Security Analysis


Furthermore, dynamic analysis can also identify vulnerabilities in a third-party component or database code that source code analysis would not uncover, since it doesn't have access to the third-party component's source code.

Developers are beginning to take the important step toward securing their applications before the applications leave their environments. Analysis tools, such as source code analysis or dynamic analysis, are alone only a partial solution. Developers should look toward hybrid analysis tools to help them secure code more easily and confidently.
