Computer programs are smart. But, they are not that smart, yet. You can’t expect them to know whether they are processing sensitive or confidential data or simply a public blog post. It’s all the same to them – unless they are told it’s not.
In other words, software needs to be designed in much the same manner society is. Here’s a simple example. If you need to open two doors before going into a bank, why wouldn’t you need 2-Step verification to, say, access your bank account online?
They didn’t invent multi-factor authentication (MFA) because they wanted to add an extra nuisance. They invented it because there’s just too much online crimes, and just as much necessity to trick them before they trick us!
That’s why web software security – and its subset, application security – should be an important part of each and every one of your plans.
And we worry about everything, whether it’s pre-deployment or post-deployment: secure coding and secure software design; user input validation and encoding strategies; authentication and cryptography; flaw and malicious code detection; security tests; threat modelling; digital signatures, risk and static analysis. In a word – you won’t need to care about anymore!
Just rest assured that we’ll take care of everything, since we’re developing our security strategy specifically for your company.
