Software Security

You've invested wisely and have a secure, hardened network. Is your software safe?

The people who attack your organization have grown beyond attacks that target your network and infrastructure. They have had to since most organizations have hardened their network. This means that attackers have started to attack the software your organization uses to interact with the world. The same powerful technologies that allow your company to differentiate and touch customers in new ways – web services, open standards, mobile computing – are the very targets of today’s hacker attacks. The dizzying complexity of applications in common use today are the new battlefield and represent the large majority of where new vulnerabilities are found and where security breaches occur.

In today’s world, the protection of information and applications is crucial to both government and commercial organizations. Cybersecurity is now an integral part of our national security efforts. Past events have shown how one security weakness in a single information system can have dramatic consequences not only for a single organization, but your entire enterprise. Recent studies show that 90% of IT threats come from exploited web sites. While there are many products built to monitor the security of applications in production, these products are not sufficient to protect your enterprise. Deep seated issues in software architecture, design, and implementation can still hide in an application for years, only to be exploited by cyber hackers and terrorists for malicious purposes. Effective Cybersecurity involves building software applications that are secure from the ground up.
