SANS - 2015 State of Application Security: Closing the Gap

New web and mobile apps let today's businesses reach out to new customers. But they also open the door to hackers looking for vulnerabilities they can exploit to steal customer data or intellectual property. This SANS survey examines the state of application security. It finds that application builders (development organizations) and application defenders (security professionals) share responsibility for application security, but they face widely divergent challenges in keeping applications safe.

Read the survey results to learn:

  • The top challenges for app builders and defenders
  • Which apps concern them most
  • What app sec standards and models are most widely applied
  • How they manage risk from 3rd party apps

  • Few Businesses Feel Fully Prepared for Software Security Risks

    Hackers penetrate organizations and steal information through vulnerabilities in software applications. Yet less than half of IT organizations have confidence in the security of the software that runs their businesses. And just 11 percent say they know with confidence which applications are at risk. Those are among the findings of a Gatepoint survey on software security assurance (SSA) highlighted by this white paper.

    Read the paper to learn:

    •             How many respondents have full-scale SSA programs in place

    •             How SSA works

    •             How much SSA has reduced remediation time


  • CW+: How to produce a business case for software quality

    When a mission-critical application fails, the loss of business revenue is large and swift. Poor application quality causes highly-visible major outages; it also causes ongoing lapses in business performance thatare less visible, but steadily add up to substantial revenue loss. Even minor quality improvements can result in significant business gain. Yet, executives struggle to build a business case to justify proactive investments in application quality. This paper presents a quantitative framework for measuring the immediate and positive revenue impact of improving application quality.
