Why Vulnerability List Methodologies Matter (And why we trust CWE & OWASP)

Hannah Boothe
Application Security Engineer

Application security lists, like the CWE Top 25 and Owasp Top 10, help focus on specific weaknesses or vulnerabilities within your system. But, do you understand their approach to ranking? If not, can you really trust them? Some vulnerability list ranking methodologies bias one aspect of security over another, and some may not work with partially unknown vulnerabilities.

A security practitioner's guide to software obsolescence

Chris Romeo
CEO & Co-Founder

Unlike wine and cheese, software does not get better with age—in fact, its security strength decreases over time. This is because of software obsolescence.The problem is more significant than any other software security issue because it includes all the other liabilities. Take the OWASP Top 10 as an example.
