It is easier and easier these days to make applications for the web, and businesses are using them at ever increasing rates. But not everyone--including developers and those who must defend their systems--knows how to secure them properly. Because of the interconnection of most web applications and IT systems, this lack of knowledge exposes enterprises to security risks from hackers who know how to exploit vulnerabilities to gain access to systems, software, and sensitive data.
With the ever changing threat landscape, expanding network perimeter, and threats getting more and more sophisticated. Web applications present a unique security challenge where the risk from attacks to applications today dwarfs the risk from traditional network attacks.
This eBook discusses what is required to supplement your network security posture and the best ways to predict when attacks may happen, prevent them when possible, detect breaches, and respond in a timely way to attacks.
