Reduce Security Threats with Effective Application Security Applications are everywhere and are critical to our business. There can be a major impediment to business if the right employees do not get access to the right applications at the right time. It is therefore important to make sure that the applications in the enterprises stay secure, up and available. Given the total dependence that enterprises have on the applications that are in use, it is necessary to ensure that application security is of utmost priority for the IT managers. Most recent research findings indicate that the application layer is one of the top risk areas where the most likely damage can occur, either by means of insider targets or by means of lack of protection. As vulnerabilities at the application level are not usually identified by routine scanning methods such as, automated network vulnerability scanning, it is necessary to have suitable security measures in place. Maintaining a secure system is very difficult on the application layer and it usually requires the constant supervision by an information security professional. It does require attention in order to make sure that hacking attempts get shut down before they cause too much damage. With the continuous challenge in the way software development lifecycles address security, there is a need for a holistic application security framework. Application level vulnerabilities need to be patched, in order to have a watertight security system. A complete and comprehensive solution must ensure that the applications adhere to and enforce the security requirements and policy of the environment in which they live. Application security is concerned with both preventing unwanted events as well as ensuring a reduction in security threats. Look for a secure development framework across your application weaved in with security frameworks that can protect your application and data from the hands of malicious hacker and end users. It must have the best security design patterns and adequate risk management frameworks to simplify and improve performance, usability and robustness. Complete application security ensures that adequate measures are built into applications and a sound application security routine minimizes the likelihood that hackers will be able to manipulate applications and access, steal, modify, or delete sensitive data. Collaborate with a solution provider that can help your enterprise identify and protect application data by building a security framework, security design patterns and development of respective secure controls within the application. Such a solution provider will ensure effective design strategies and development of secure software for the organization. Also read on - Information Risk Management, cloud security, mobile security
