Speed, Scale, Security: Orchestrating a Great Download Experience

Delivering software is becoming harder every day. Not only do you have to compete in a universe of 15 billion connected devices, but also with a growing number of users downloading everything from new applications to virus updates.

The result is a growing congestion that can undermine your ability to get your application, software patch, or device update to your end users as quickly as possible. And every minute that your users spend trying to download your software is a minute they can’t spend using it.

What it ultimately comes down to is latency.

DevOps and the Cost of Downtime

DevOps is hot, and likely top of mind for you executives – bringing many technical and business benefits to LOB leaders, the C-suite and IT delivery organizations. But when you ask stakeholders to change what they’ve done successfully for years, you must monetize the benefits and ROI for them, and make the organization change real. This IDC Report highlights how communicating DevOps business value is critical to securing additional funding and accelerating the rate and course of change in an enterprise.

Static Code Analysis in an Agile World

To keep pace with ever-increasing customer demands on software functionality and time-to-market expectations, software developers have had to evolve the way they develop code to be both faster and higher quality. As part of this trend, the Waterfall method of software development began to give way in the late 1990s to a more lightweight method of software development: Agile.

Fuzz Testing Maturity Model

Fuzz testing is an industry-standard technique for locating unknown vulnerabilities in software. Fuzz testing is mandatory portion of many modern secure software development life cycles (SDLCs), such as those used at Adobe, Cisco Systems and Microsoft. This document provides a framework to assess the maturity of your processes, software, systems and devices. At the heart of this document is a vendor-agnostic maturity model for fuzz testing that maps metrics and procedures of effective fuzz testing to maturity levels. The maturity model is a lingua franca for talking about fuzzing, allowing different organizations to communicate effectively about fuzzing without being tied to specific tools.

The Fuzz Testing Maturity Model (FTMM) gives builders and buyers a set of standard levels for communicating about fuzz testing.

Synopsys solutions help deliver a more comprehensive security offering for the SDLC by adding black box testing capabilities, including the Codenomicon Defensics® tool for file and protocol fuzz testing, and the Codenomicon AppCheck™ tool for software composition analysis and vulnerability assessment.

What is Fuzzing: The Poet, the Courier, and The Oracle

Fuzzing is well established as an excellent technique for locating vulnerabilities in software. The basic premise is to deliver intentionally malformed input to target software and detect failure. A complete fuzzer has three components. A poet creates the malformed inputs or test cases. A courier delivers test cases to the target software. Finally, an oracle detects if a failure has occurred in the target. Fuzzing is a crucial tool in software vulnerability management, both for organizations that build software as well as organizations that use software.

Synopsys solutions help deliver a more comprehensive security offering for the SDLC by adding black box testing capabilities, including the Codenomicon Defensics® tool for file and protocol fuzz testing, and the Codenomicon AppCheck™ tool for software composition analysis and vulnerability assessment.

The Product Delivery Problem (Hint: It’s Not You)

For product managers and their counterparts, the road to launch is a fight to keep every task, every detail, every change grounded in business goals. It’s not enough to be fast. Or to deliver the right product. You need to do both. This requires:

• Balancing the needs of many stakeholders to define a set of requirements for what’s being built, why and how.

• Prioritizing and re-prioritizing “must-have” mandates from multiple voices—everyone from front-end users to engineers to sales to support.

• Ensuring that what gets built is what every one expects.

This white paper outlines surefire ways you can establish and maintain a strong connection between intended outcomes, development methodologies and customer value.
