What is Application Security?
Application security is the process of developing, adding, and testing security features within applications to prevent security vulnerabilities against threats such as unauthorized access and modification.
Why is Application Security so important?
Why is application security important to protect customers’ data? Data security and privacy are core aspects of every application security approach. Every application processes and stores sensitive business information and customer data, often the prime targets in a breach.
What makes Application Security difficult to bolster?
The leading reason for finding it difficult to remediate application security vulnerabilities is an inability to quickly patch apps that are in production, followed by inability to quickly detect vulnerabilities/threats and a lack of enabling security tools or qualified personnel.
