Software security is a top concern today. You can’t risk any security vulnerabilities — particularly if you’re developing software for embedded systems. And that means your code needs to be secure and free of coding errors.

To ensure secure software, you need to start at the source — the code level. Otherwise, coding errors will compromise your program. The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) estimates that up to 90% of reported security incidents result from exploiting vulnerabilities in software code or design. And these vulnerabilities allow hackers to access private data or take unauthorized control of a system.
