Accessing Code Security
Are your programmers writing secure code? Programmers certainly have a lot on their plates and while security has been a burning issue in recent times, it hasn’t been a top priority for developers.

Third-party code security testing
Third-party also known as supply chain, vendor supplied or outsourced software is any program or application that is not written exclusively by employees belonging to the company for which that software was created. An increasing amount of applications are created out of house or are compiled using off the shelf or open sourced code.
