Optimize Existing Applications for Security in an Untrusted World

Inject application security practices into development and maintenance cycles.

Existing applications need more security because:

  • Attacks are becoming more frequent and sophisticated. This means each single event could be one part of a larger incident that requires a fast and coordinated response.
  • New technologies and the continued expansion of the enterprise environment only mean that the number of breach entry points will increase.
  • Legacy applications and closed source environments may prohibit layered security increasing the risk profile.

An optimized application security strategy will help your organization:

  • Keep up with new security threats and speed up the response time.
  • Minimize total cost of breach by being proactive instead of reactive.
  • Establish knowledge base of internal security problems, vulnerabilities, and exploits.
  • Achieve alignment with internal security obligations for risk mitigation and asset protection.

Book Your Workshop

Onsite Workshops offer an easy way to accelerate your project. If you are unable to do the project yourself, and a Guided Implementation isn’t enough, we offer low-cost onsite delivery of our Project Workshops. We take you through every phase of your project and ensure that you have a road map in place to complete your project successfully.
