Businesses are being asked to deliver more sophisticated and complex services to customers, employees and partners. But the applications that meet these demands must also be adaptable to constantly changing market demands. Increasingly the choice is to use Web-based applications for these new services. Businesses must focus on the security of these applications in order to protect themselves from potential exposure of confidential information and damage to the systems.

Protection from these threats must be taken into account holistically – through the lifecycle of applications – from development to deployment to ongoing management and end-of-life consideration.
