These days every single organization is digitizing and automating their processes. A huge number of applications are created every day. Most of the times aiming at a more efficient way of working than before. That’s fantastic! But…sadly… there is a downside. With every automation being built the attack vector of organizations grows larger & larger. These days hackers come in great numbers ar organized and have access to a lot of knowledge & high tech tools. Needless to say security is a big issue for ALL organizations and will be even more in the coming years.
It all boils down to “basic hygiene” and keeping it hygienic. This is off course much easier said than done. A secure infrastructure ran and maintained by people with sufficient knowledge and awareness is hard enough but it doesn’t end there! You need secure applications created by people that are knowledgeable and aware of security risks. You will need to keep these applications secure by constantly evaluating internal changes as well as changes to third party software used (applications, libraries, etc…). Not only developers & system engineers will need to reason about data privacy & security but also product owners, project managers, analysts, …. and even … users. It is as much as a technological challenge as it is a cultural challenge.
What if you had an application platform that delivers security out of the box and built-straight into your applications. An application platform that offers security automation where possible and reminders/tasks to drive awareness and culture. No extra software required, all straight built into your application platform.
