Application Security

Protect against attacks exploiting gaps in application security.

Identifying every possible gap in web and mobile applications requires advanced solutions. As applications grow, new functions added, changes made - the opportunity for new security gaps increase.  

To protect against  security vulnerabilities in applications organizations need a comprehensive testing approach - to test the entire portfolio and verify security compliance. This has to happen early, and continuously to prevent against the threat of new attacks. In most companies, attacks occur at the application layer, and this is often not managed well. While most organizations agree that application is essential, it is also not done well or throughout the application lifecycle.
