Identify People, Processes and Technology That Can Accelerate Your AppSec Program

Unseen Application Vulnerabilities 
Might Be Costing You

Even as software vulnerabilities grow in popularity as attack vectors, businesses struggle to secure their applications. Newer and more complex apps are released every day – web apps, mobile apps, client-server apps – making it that much harder to find and fix the growing volume of vulnerabilities.


Yet, many organizations lack a formal application security program and do little more than the occasional scan of their software to secure their growing application environment. Even with the best scanning tools, it’s not enough to prevent expensive breaches or steep fines and costly litigation from non-compliance.


Optiv can help. Our application security experts meet you where you are to understand your current AppSec program, development practices and the effectiveness of your software development lifecycle (SDLC) frameworks so we can design a holistic application security program together. Then, working with your AppSec stakeholders, we’ll identify people, processes or technology that can be effectively deployed, create a secure baseline and chart a maturity roadmap customized for your organization’s unique requirements.
