With the increasing rate of security breaches, today’s applications need to be built more securely at the code level, and that code needs to be tested regularly. The Software Assurance Marketplace was developed to make it easier to consistently test the quality and security of applications and bring a transformative change to the software assurance landscape by reducing the number of weaknesses deployed in software.
