With software becoming the competitive differentiator for most businesses rather than just a support function, the speed and complexity of it is rapidly increasing. Because of the business demand being put on development teams, often times there is little to no time put into ensuring these applications are secure. However, the biggest and most severe data breaches that have affected both the public and private sectors all operate at the application layer.
Ensuring your applications are secure doesn’t have to be a cumbersome process. With the right program and tools, you can improve or start your organization’s security initiative without getting in the way of developers’ productivity.
My colleague Brent Jenkins just wrote a great blog series on Fortify’s take on making application security seamless. This means integrating security with the tools developers are already using and making auditing and remediation fast (with things like machine learning and visualization). Check it out:
- What is Seamless Application Security Testing and Why is it Important?
- Making your application security program seamless
- 5 Steps to Make Application Security Seamless
- Getting Started with Seamless Application Security
To cap off this blog series, I’ll join Brent for a webinar titled, appropriately enough, Get Started with Seamless AppSec in One Day. This webinar covers:
- The current state of software and application security
- How to create or improve your AppSec program in a day
- Why integration is essential for speed
- Why it is essential to go beyond the OWASP Top 10
