For this reason it is important that software vendors find a way to demonstrate that their software is built using secure development practices. The VerAfied mark tells the world that NSFOCUS is testing for application vulnerabilities and complying with industry standards, but more importantly, it lets their customers know NSFOCUS is a vendor they can trust to keep their data secure.”
