While security practitioners can and should play an active role in web application security, only developers are familiar enough with the code to fix software vulnerabilities.

For this reason, security teams can most effectively prevent software vulnerabilities from entering production by equipping their development teams with the tools to fix security issues as they’re building applications.

Security managers would be wise to implement processes that don’t interfere with development deadlines.

Application security solutions that slow developers down are unlikely to get much use, considering the pressure on development teams to deliver applications faster.

Traditional software security solutions that produce a long, dizzying list of vulnerabilities after an application’s completion require a tedious remediation process for developers.
