Addressing application security challenges

Whether your enterprise applications are in the cloud or on-premises, they can be easily exploitable gateways to confidential enterprise information. That’s because application security defects are often identified in late stages of software development lifecycle (SDLC), and amplified by the short development cycles of agile methods.

To help organizations effectively balance the discovery of new application vulnerabilities and remediate existing vulnerability backlogs, IBM Application Security Services can help. We can transform your application security program by deeply integrating expertise, tools and processes across your entire SDLC. By identifying and remediating application vulnerabilities early in the SDLC, you can drive cost savings and better outcomes.
