Application Security

WAF and Compliance: Meeting Legal and Regulatory Requirements

Building a web application in an online environment that hosts a countless number of bad bots, malicious hackers, and other security threats can be complicated. A web application must first be built to be functional (easy enough, sort of), and to be secure. Ideally, security will be considered from the beginning, and then flaws will need to be addressed upon completion. So, if your organization handles customer data, which it almost certainly does, there are legal and regulatory compliance rules you have to follow.

Why Implementing App Security Can Lead To Spiraling Costs

Robust app security is non-negotiable, but the spiraling costs that can come with it are. In the context of application delivery, security plays a pivotal role in maintaining business continuity, protecting sensitive data, and upholding a solid reputation. However, the journey to build a formidable defense at the load balancing and reverse proxy layer can quickly become costly with a few wrong turns. Security is important, but buyers don’t have to break the bank to implement it.

Follow These Smart Steps And Secure Protocols For Business Applications

In the rapidly evolving landscape of business technology, securing protocols and applications is paramount. As companies increasingly rely on digital solutions, the potential vulnerabilities grow, making it crucial to implement robust security measures. This article delves into six smart steps to fortify your business applications and protocols, ensuring a resilient defense against cyber threats.

Black Hat USA: Adaptable Security From HAProxy

The curtain rose and fell on another spectacular Black Hat USA, the conference set against the backdrop of fabulous Las Vegas in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. We knew upon hitting the Strip that all the glamor and neon lights were just the preshow for the main event: innovation and the latest in cybersecurity. We couldn’t wait to show attendees and fellow vendors what we had to offer.

How business acumen boosts application security

To outpace the competition in an era where high-performing, secure digital experiences are expected, business acumen can inform AppSec priorities. Now more than ever, business leaders are racing to build, modernize and deploy business-critical apps on-premises and within distributed, cloud native environments.

15 surprisingly scary application security statistics

Take a research-based look at the state of application security and learn how leveraging security builds user trust, resilience and revenue growth. According to the cybersecurity readiness index released by Cisco in March of 2023, less than 10% of all companies worldwide are considered mature enough to tackle today’s cybersecurity issues. In part, this lag in maturity can be attributed to 92% of technologists prioritizing rapid innovation across application development ahead of app security.

A guide to static application security testing (SAST)

Static application security testing (SAST) involves analyzing source code to identify and address potential security vulnerabilities. Using SAST early in development identifies threats before they can affect a live environment. SAST is particularly important for continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines. These pipelines automate the integration of new code changes into the main codebase and deploy applications to production environments.

Building digital trust and fueling growth through application security

Security awareness is at an all time high. Companies need the right tools to support innovation while building digital trust that users demand. Learn how Cisco Secure Application can help solve this challenge. Security awareness skyrockets with every breach. In response, users are doubling down on vetting the trustworthiness of companies before transacting.
