Application security services are designed to protect critical business software from undesired access and mishandling, as well as viruses or other cyber-attacks. Businesses can deploy application security software in lieu or in addition to application security services to maximize their protection efforts
Every enterprise’s application landscape is now both businesses critical and rapidly evolving. Mobile and cloud computing are dramatically changing the manner we do business. Today, the world runs on applications, and, as a result, every company is becoming a software company – regardless of its primary business expertise. Enterprises are producing certain applications faster than ever before, often using agile development processes and then augmenting their internal development programs with third-party software and open source libraries and components.
So how do organizations ensure security of their critical application landscapes? Here is where the importance of application security comes in.
Application security is what any organization does to protect its critical data from external threats by ensuring the security of all of the software used to run the business, whether built internally, bought or downloaded. Application security helps identify, fix and prevent security vulnerabilities in any kind of software application and almost every application has vulnerabilities. About 70 to 80 percent of all applications had at least one vulnerability classified as one of the top 10 web vulnerability types. Various Business and Commercial software, financial services software, software written by government agencies- all are vulnerable.
There are a variety of application security technologies available to help with this endeavor, but no one is a silver bullet. Organizations need to gather insights through multiple analysis techniques along the entire application lifetime to drive down application risk.
The Final goal for any organization should be a mature, robust application security program that:
- Assess security posture of every application, whether built in-house, purchased or compiled
- Enables developers to find and fix vulnerabilities while they are coding
- Takes advantage of automation and cloud-based services to more easily incorporate security into the development process and scale the program
- Lessons from past mistakes and better managing future development processes
