Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the softwaredevelopment life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespreadadoption and deployment. The justification is clear.

For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in theirproducts. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost softwarevendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases causedbillions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide.
