Poorly tested third-party code can result in product delays or recalls, security vulnerabilities and increases in development time for your products and services. All this could seriously and negatively impact your revenue and brand. In a recent survey by Forrester Consulting, only 44 percent of companies surveyed conduct automated code testing during development for third-party code, compared to 69 percent that use automated code testing for internally developed software. Only 35 percent of companies conduct risk, security or vulnerabilities assessments for third-party code, compared to 70 percent of companies deploying these methods on their internally developed software. And only 35 percent of companies apply manual code review to third-party supplied software, compared to 68 percent who perform manual code review on internally developed code. In short, third-party code is not tested in the same way as in-house code.
