Application security encompasses measures taken throughout the application’s life-cycle to prevent exceptions in the security policy of an application or the underlying system (vulnerabilities) through flaws in the design, development, deployment, upgrade, or maintenance of the application.
Applications only control the use of resources granted to them, and not which resources are granted to them. They, in turn, determine the use of these resources by users of the application through application security.
A principle-based approach for application security includes knowing your threats and securing the network, host and application.
Attacks on applications—such as multi-layer DDoS attacks, SQL injection vulnerabilities, and JSON payload violations in AJAX widgets—pose serious new security threats. The risks to your interactive web apps, your data, and your business are increasing.
Vinitech’s Application Security partners provide flexible, certified, and comprehensive, policy-based web application security solutions that eliminate the need for multiple appliances and address emerging threats at the application level. These complete solutions lower maintenance and management costs, and reduce the risk of damage to your intellectual property, data, and web applications.
