Application security

 

Application security protects against the threat of attacks and data breaches

Business runs on software. To protect the business, mobile and web-based software must be secure. Therefore, application security must be a core competency of your organization’s security strategy.

IBM X-Force® research consistently reveals that a significant percentage of security vulnerabilities pertain to web applications. To address application security challenges effectively, organizations need to test software and applications across their entire portfolio. And to reduce the costs of security, testing and verification need to occur as early as possible.

IBM is positioned as a leader in the 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing.
