Veracode and IDG experts to discuss how enterprises can close the
growing security gap by creating formal application security programs
BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
the application security company, today announced that research
conducted by IDG revealed that 63 percent of enterprise applications are
not assessed for security vulnerabilities. Veracode and IDG will present
this and related findings from the research study during the webinar
of Internally Developed Apps Not Assessed for Critical Security
Vulnerabilities” on June 25, 2014 at 11:30 am EDT.
Leading enterprises in all industries are delivering new mobile
experiences, leveraging the Cloud and Big Data analytics, and digitizing
their processes. As a result all enterprises are becoming software
companies, and these companies are competing to bring their innovations
to market faster. The IDG study showed that, on average, enterprises are
internally developing 2,500 applications a year. The reason the majority
of these applications go untested is because securing web, mobile and
third-party applications can be an inhibitor to getting these solutions
to market quickly – especially when using the traditional on-premises
approach to application security. This approach is complex, and requires
specialized skills. Plus it is decentralized, making it challenging for
enterprises to apply consistent policies, metrics and reporting across
disparate business units and development teams.
The joint IDG
and Veracode webinar will reveal results from the recent study and
examine why so many applications go untested – even though enterprise
applications are the primary target for cyber-attacks. The study found
that 63 percent of applications are not assessed for critical security
vulnerabilities, including the most commonly exploited vulnerabilities
such as SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting. During the webinar,
experts will discuss how the lack of formal application security
programs combined with the growing number of enterprise applications
being produced creates a security gap that increases enterprise risk.
The webinar will also examine how enterprises can benchmark their
application security programs against peers to bring their application
security posture to the next level.
The IDG study asked executives at large enterprises about their
application security programs and practices. The purpose of this study
was to gain a better understanding of the enterprise application
security environment, particularly for internally developed
applications. The study also forecasted future application development,
changes to security budgets, and application security vulnerabilities.
