Security for applications has become one of the most important aspects that developers must guarantee and companies must ensure. It is important to deliver an enhanced and secure application experience to the end-user to continue enjoying increasing user counts.
Currently, a large percentage of digital attacks are directed at company websites or applications, and the consequences faced by all the parties involved (i.e. the enterprise, third parties, users) are extremely heavy to bear.
We are much aware of the vitality to secure business networks, workstations, and the entirety of an organization’s IT infrastructure while securing an application is of sheer importance before it is deployed and launched or is put to use in real-time.
To press on the purpose of this blog title, let’s first pay heed to the results that a successful attack incurs.
Application security is important because today’s applications are often available over various networks and connected to the cloud, increasing vulnerabilities to security threats and breaches.
Consequences of a Successful Attack
Successful attacks on the security of a company’s applications affect both the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of its sensitive information, as well as its image in the market, considerably affecting the reputation and finances of the business.
It can harm a business’s standing, its bottom line, and customer trust that are hard to regain and re-establish while keeping the business up and running in the shortest time possible.
The timely identification and constant correction of possible security flaws and vulnerabilities in the applications eliminate the chances of service disruption, reduce costs, protect the attack surface from being exploited, and increase the quality of productive applications.
Information security is an integral part of the applications throughout their life cycle, and this is what ESOF VMDR closely understands to estimate and embed maximum security and operation conditions within all of its application software, rendering 360-degree protection to the security posture.
ESOF’s Vulnerability Management Detection and Response (ESOF VMDR) ensures to manage and orchestrate IT management and security functions through a single platform, thus taking vulnerability management to the next level with super easy implementation.
Application Security: The ESOF VMDR WAY
It is understood that the security of applications refers to all actions, security measures and all processes carried out to make apps more secure, in terms of data protection, codes, or theft of any type of information.
Currently, the security of applications has become one of the most relevant aspects to take into account from the perspective of cyber threats and increasing vulnerabilities that pose great threats to a business’s IT infrastructure.
But with an umbrella solution of ESOF VMDR that is required by all the hybrid, dynamic, and distributed IT environments, a cyber security foundation can be established that streamlines workflows of automated asset discovery, evaluation, management, prioritization, and mitigation, all on a single platform.
How ESOF VMDR Ensures Application Security?
Minimizing the possible damage of an attack on the security of the application, the single platform of ESOF VMDR analyzes potential vulnerabilities, effectively prevents breaches, and quickly responds to threats via its far-sighted visibility and control of vulnerability and risk management.
The foundational cyber security process of a complex and hybrid IT infrastructure is uniquely orchestrated with tactical certainty and accuracy, giving insights into better asset management and prioritization of remediation workloads.
In order to guarantee the security of the information in the applications and protect them from risk-based vulnerabilities, the ESOF VMDR considers all the security requirements, such as:
- Run comprehensive scans of the application software to analyze risks and detect malware
- Discover known and unknown assets your global hybrid IT stack
- Recognize the most critical aspects of the security landscape
- Determine hidden vulnerabilities and risks with smart techniques
- Gain Far-sighted visibility of risk measurement of apps through a single cyber score
- Automatically prioritize the riskiest vulnerabilities promptly as per the SLA metrics
- Learn about possible zero-day risks associated with global digital assets
- Remediate vulnerabilities before they exploit the security posture
ESOF VMDR’s Approach to Application Security
ESOF’s Vulnerability Management Detection and Response is a simplified method describing security measures that prevent app data to be breached, thereby, minimizing security vulnerabilities and potential threats.
Figuring out what actually has to be done on protecting the entirety of the IT network of a business on global grounds, the ESOF VMDR forms the foundation of the vulnerability risk management space.
#Intel Analysis – Identify and assess factors and elements that could be used to exploit the attack surface and negatively affect the security posture.
#In-Depth Detection – Detects application transactions and attempts to exploit them for malicious purposes.
#Active Prevention – Block the exploitation of vulnerabilities in applications and communications protocols to prevent their malicious use.
#Rigorous Audit – Analyze the applications in order to gather tests and evidence that suggest that the applications are safe and are not used or manipulated by attackers.
