Sonatype's RANT“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity…”, penned Charles Dickens in 1859’s A Tale of Two Cities.

These words, though 155 years old, could not ring more true for the world of application security today. For there has never been a more interesting, important or challenging time in our profession than RIGHT NOW. We are so passionate about our beliefs and this cause, we invite you to read, contemplate, and share our RANT, 'DON'T DRINK SOUR MILK and other avoidable risks in the new world of application security.
