According to Gartner, application security is like a crown jewel in a treasure chest; the sensitive information is the crown jewel, and the applications are the treasure chest. To get at the jewels, attackers attack vulnerabilities in the application container – hence enterprises must keep that application container secure.
Application security is what an organization does to protect its critical data from external threats by ensuring the security of all of the softwares used to run the business. Application security helps:
Almost every application has vulnerabilities. A software “vulnerability” is an unintended weakness in the software that leads it to process critical data in an insecure way. By exploiting these “holes” in applications, cybercriminals can gain entry into an organization’s systems and steal confidential data. Common software vulnerabilities include SQL injection, Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS).
