Today’s business wants to use mobile computing, social networking, and cloud computing to generate new revenue channels, foster rich customer interactions and reduce the cost of delivering products and services. Yet most applications were deployed prior to mobile and cloud computing. IT departments struggle to control these new business channels as security and operational risks increase and the network barriers that separated trusted from untrusted disappear.
Solutions within application security include:
- Application testing and scanning
- Code level analysis
- Web application firewalls
- SOA security
