The Problem: Web applications represent a critical, if not the primary, customer interface for a growing number of organizations. In this environment, network firewalls are no longer sufficient to protect applications. Today’s multi-layer attacks increasingly target the application layer, where hidden vulnerabilities can be exploited with devastating effects on application availability, data security, customer confidence, and reputation, not to mention lost business and recovery costs. Application scanners identify vulnerabilities,... [More]
Annual revenues in the mobile based App Economy are estimated at $72 billion today and are expected to double to $151 billion by 2017. The fast adoption is driving rapid mobile app innovation, without understanding the security risks, and thereby providing attractive targets for compromising financial, IP and personal or confidential information. View this webinar to learn more about protecting applications from security vulnerabilities and integrity protection.

Security involves many activities: controlling user access, hardening applications, inspecting network traffic, patching systems, and monitoring databases, among others. IBM offers solutions for all of these. However, optimum security requires gaining insight by combining data from across your security infrastructure. This live demonstration shows two simple realistic scenarios. In the first a user browses and then attacks an application. In the second, a privileged user manipulates a database. IBM Security detects and secures these... [More]
