5 Steps to Achieve Risk-Based Application Security Management

Software applications support the most sensitive and strategically important business processes of most enterprises. Yet application security is one of the most neglected fields of cybersecurity.

IT and business management typically have no visibility into the overall state of application security. Activities for assessing, prioritizing and remediating application vulnerabilities are ad hoc, fragmented and carried out at low levels in the IT security organization. Quality assurance and software development groups lack the knowledge and incentives to address critical vulnerabilities early in application development lifecycles, where testing and fixing vulnerabilities are most cost-effective.

Not every user’s “office” is the same. Why should their devices be?

Work is no longer somewhere you go, it’s something you do. Today, workers demand more freedom to choose where, when and how they do their jobs. They expect the same when it comes to the devices they use.

In the past, selecting work computers was a straightforward process. Now workers rely on a wide array of devices to get their work done.

Last year, Dell studied North American office workers and pinpointed 7 archetypal “work styles” and tailored its suite of computing devices and accessories.

This guide will help you identify the users in your organization and match them with Dell PCs and accessories optimized for their specific needs.

Application Security Buyers’ Guide: Managing Application Security Risk Requires a Comprehensive Toolkit

Today, 85% of security attacks target software applications, according to SAP. Not surprisingly, there is an array of application security tools on the market to help companies address security risks, and they vary in both approach and coverage. For example, traditional application security tools—dynamic application security testing (DAST) and static application security testing (SAST)—are very effective in finding bugs in the application code internal developers write. However, they are not effective in identifying open source software vulnerabilities. Given that open source is an essential component in application development worldwide, effective open source vulnerability management is imperative.

This guide provides a comprehensive overview of application security risks, discusses the types of solutions available, and looks at where each excels or falls short. It discusses why organizations need a comprehensive application security toolkit to stay secure throughout the product life cycle.
