Now that’s a big number. What makes that number feel even bigger, however, is the fact that this is the total number of records stolen from security breaches in just the first half of last year (2017). Furthermore, with only 20% of enterprise security architects integrating application security into the Software Development Lifecycle, this number will only get bigger. Couple that with the fact that most organizations these days are shifting left towards DevOps and looking to release software even faster, that 20% can only get smaller.

AppSec.pngWith so many consequences of a security breach, such as financial, reputation and brand damage, lost productivity, forensics costs and more, it’s time for organizations to address application security head on, before it’s too late.

So how are you expected to tackle this massive task when your organization doesn’t have the skillset or expertise, plus you are already expected to deliver releases more and more often? Micro Focus Fortify on Demand delivers application security as a service, allowing your organization to easily create, supplement or even expand your Software Security Assurance (SSA). And since speed and accuracy are every organization’s goal as they continue to shift security to the left, Fortify on Demand can actually save up to 25% development time as code scans can be configured to run automatically. Furthermore, Fortify on Demand can help reduce repeat code vulnerabilities by up to 40%, which again allows for faster development with fewer risks. Now your organization is not only securing its applications, avoiding becoming another statistic in the breach records, but releasing faster, with better quality and with fewer issues.

Fortify’s comprehensive application security offering doesn’t stop there though. It’s not about just taking application security off your organization’s plate. Fortify on Demand also enables your organization with training, research, guidance and more, to ensure the future success of your Software Security Assurance program. It’s more of a long term partnership rather than software as a service.

Don’t let your organization be part of the whopping breach statistics. Secure your entire software development lifecycle with Fortify on Demand!
