SearchSecurity: Scaling Automated Code Review

hi sc-l,

The latest monthy SearchSecurity article was co-authored with Jim Routh, CSO of Aetna.  What Jim is doing for his fifth 
(!!) software security initiative is very interesting.  So interesting that we decided to write about it.

In particular pay attention to Jim's use of a light weight IDE-based static analysis tool.  This is important for two 
reasons: 1) because it runs on all dev desktops (and thus scales) and 2) because it finds problems in real time as they 
are being typed in. FIXING security problems found in this way is easier than it is in the situation when results 
arrive a week after they are typed in when dev on a new sprint.
