Application security services are designed to protect critical business software from undesired access and mishandling, as well as viruses or other cyber attacks. Application security providers assist businesses with application security through steps including application design review, application code review, and secure application development. If security flaws are discovered during review, these firms can recommend fixes and work with in-house develops to bolster protection across each platform. Vulnerability assessment is often a major component of application security, and many cybersecurity providers include this in their standard procedures.
Application security services go hand in hand with network security, data security, and other cybersecurity services to keep companies aware of threats, safe from attacks, and prepared to respond in the event of an incident. Businesses can deploy application security software in lieu or in addition to application security services to maximize their protection efforts.
