Web Application Security Trends Report Q3-Q4, 2008
We are beginning to see a trend of growing awareness around Web application security. The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Section 6.6 initiative is driving a lot of companies especially e-retailers to get compliant. However, the economic crisis, lack of awareness and understanding of the issues are holding some organizations back from moving forward with this initiative. Most of the regulations around compliance including PCI, GLBA, HIPAA, and others are not enforcing the regulations as strongly as they should. Many organizations don't want to take action unless they have been hacked or audited by one of the regulatory compliance bodies.
Read this white paper to learn how to protect web applications through application security assessment and penetration testing managed services (SaaS) that identify vulnerabilities and provide remediation to allow organizations to stay ahead of hackers.
