The Next Generation of Application Security

Application security is usually done by finding, fixing and preventing vulnerabilities, with an emphasis on finding solutions to prevent cybersecurity events in the future. However, many of the breaches we’re seeing are caused by a vulnerability related to the application, often because developers move so quickly to push out new code.

AppSec promises to become more complicated with greater deployment of cloud security and as IT infrastructures shift to “software-defined everything” services. Traditional app security is no longer enough to meet those security challenges. Effective AppSec means stopping attackers in production as they try to brute force their way into an app, which means software teams need active protection wherever they choose to run their apps, APIs and microservices. As technology advances—and more rapidly than ever—how will the next generation of AppSec address these new challenges?
