The Software Security Assessment measures the source code against all current security standards and best practices, such as those of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).

The analysis provides a dedicated Security Dashboard, as shown in the following figure. The assessment measures the number of critical violations, the ‘never-to-do’s’, in various aspects. From the dashboard, developers and maintenance staff can instantly see where the issues are in the code, why they are violations, and how to fix them. In this way, the security of an application can be quickly improved, so that the risks are mitigated.
