Improve Your Security Posture With Robust, Intrinsic Application Security

Unknown Application Security Vulnerabilities Are Both Expensive and Painful

Software vulnerabilities are a major attack vector, but businesses continue to struggle to secure their applications. As apps become more numerous and complex – web apps, mobile apps, client-server apps, etc. – finding and fixing the growing volume of vulnerabilities just gets harder.

 

Security teams often aren't clear about all the apps they’re supposed to be managing. And because software developers aren’t security professionals, security isn’t one of their top priorities. As a result, countless apps aren’t secure and fail to meet compliance requirements.

As apps get more complex, finding and fixing vulnerabilities gets harder.

Without an effective approach to secure application development and use, you run the risk of breaches that can impact your company’s reputation and bottom line. You may also see inefficiencies internally that can create friction between your development and security teams and can continually impact your bottom line. Oh… you could also be looking at steep fines or costly litigation if your apps are non-compliant (this can also cost you long-term through damage to your reputation. No one wants that.)

 

 

What Is Application Security?

 

Application security (or AppSec) includes all application-level tasks introducing a secure software development life cycle (SDLC) to development teams. The goal is to prevent data or code within the app from being stolen or hijacked and improve security practices and, through that, find, fix and preferably prevent security issues within applications.

Application Security By the Numbers

By 2025, 70% of attacks against containers will be from known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that could have been remediated.*

By 2025, organizations will speed up their remediation of coding and vulnerabilities identified by SAST by 30% with code suggestions applied from automated solutions, up from less than 1% today, reducing time spent fixing buys by 50%.*

By 2024, the provision of a detailed, regularly updated software bill of materials by software vendors will be non-negotiable requirement for at least half of enterprise software buyers, up from less than 5% in 2019.* The recent Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity from the White House is likely to increase this projection.
