Micro Focus Application Security Specialization
In recent years, software went from being a support function of business to an innovation center, becoming the essential competitive differentiator for most businesses in every vertical and size. With this shift in the role of software, businesses today are dramatically increasing the number of applications and the frequency of releases, with little thought given to non-functional requirements. In addition, modern applications are increasing in complexity due to the need for speed, and as a result, developers’ reliance on code re-use as well as open source and commercial (COTS) components has increased dramatically. This has huge implications on security teams to find and manage vulnerabilities. As a consequence, some of the notable security breaches in recent years were due to vulnerabilities in third party code components.
On top of all the challenges created by increased number of applications, increasing complexity and faster releases, regulations like GDPR and capturing customer data for business purposes has become the norm.
In most organizations, application security is isolated to a specific team who gets involved in the final stages of development and is perceived as an inhibitor of speed. When security vulnerabilities are found in late stages, organizations face pressure, which results in friction between teams, missed release deadlines or worse. According to NIST, the cost to remediate security flaws is 30x more expensive in production and 10x more in testing than if they were caught in early stages of development.
Application Security – Fortify
Secure development, security testing, and continuous monitoring and protection.
Secure applications by using best practices and testing should be an integral part of the entire software development lifecycle process. Whether it’s taking a DevSecOps approach, or just creating a more effective security program, the need is thinking about security from the very early stages of the lifecycle.
Fortify’s comprehensive suite of software security solutions finds security vulnerabilities in applications, automates the process of fixing security vulnerabilities by securing the software development lifecycle (SDLC), integrates with current development tools and processes, and protects applications against attacks in production.
Fortify is the market leader (confirmed by the Gartner Magic Quadrant) that has the industry’s largest software security research group that improves time-to-value by discovering security threats early in their lifecycle, and combined with the benefits of fixing issues earlier in the development this approach reduces costs and increases revenue for customers.
