What is Application Security Service?

As technology is evolving with every passing day, the techniques of manipulating it for malicious purposes are also on the rise.

A few decades ago, application security was considered an afterthought in the software development lifecycle(SDLC). But with the increased number of hacking attacks, threats, and security breaches, the need for Application security services from planning to deployment has become more critical than ever.

Application security is the practice of preventing vulnerable and confidential data and information from being attacked, hijacked, or stolen at the application level.

Our application security service does not only eliminate vulnerabilities and protect the application during the development and design phase, but it also ensures security after the deployment and throughout the application lifecycle.

Benefits of Application Security Consulting

Builds Customer Trust and Increases Retention Rate

When customers know that their data and information are protected within your application, it builds their confidence in your business. This will not only help your company in customer retention, but it will also help you in acquiring new customers with the help of word-of-mouth marketing.

Reduces Long-Term Costs

If your application is secure and free from vulnerabilities, you will save big on application maintenance that would cost you pretty pennies otherwise. Utilizing our application security consulting service, you can bring cost reduction and efficiency into your application system.

Builds Brand Image

The robust and completely secure application gives your company an edge over your competitors and makes you stand out in the crowd. This, in turn, creates a distinct brand image that goes a long way in developing and maintaining customer relationships.

Ensures that Your Application Stays Up & Running All the Time

Detecting malicious attacks and promptly dealing with them keeps your application up and running all the time. Our application security consulting service makes sure that your system remains efficient and operational each second of the day.

Vulnerability Assessment

Our seasoned technicians detect vulnerabilities, bugs, and different loopholes in your application and give you a remediation plan to overcome all these security risks.

Protection Through Encryption

We then guard your application by deploying the best security and encryption practices so that no hacker or unauthorized person can step foot in your application.

The infrastructure of the software and the software itself both must be protected to achieve maximum levels of security and have a risk-free software environment.

Software security, being a more holistic and proactive approach, takes place during the developmental stage or before software deployment. On the other hand, application security is a reactive approach that takes place after the deployment of software.

Application security is thus only a part of a large domain which is software security. However, both types of security are necessary to secure an organization's data and confidentiality in the initial and post-deployment stages.

Software Security(Pre-Deployment) activities are as follows:

  • Development of secure design for software
  • Secure coding practices & guidelines
  • Utilization of cryptographic techniques to secure data
  • User authentication and session management
  • Detection of flaws and bugs in the architecture and design of the software

Application Security(Post-Deployment) activities are as follows:

  • After deployment, risk assessment
  • Identification of malicious script
  • Patch fixing/Upgrade
  • Filtering of IP(Internet Protocol)
  • Runtime monitoring of software programs

Application level security means the protection of an application, be it mobile, Web, or IoT, at the application layer, which is the 7th layer of the OSI model.

There are seven(7) layers that computer systems use through which communication happens between users over a network. The application layer is the 7th layer and hence the closest to the users, which makes it more vulnerable to hacking and attacks. Therefore, this layer's security matters a lot.

Some common examples of application layer attacks are:

  • SQL injection
  • Cross-Site Scripting
  • Distributed Denial of Service(DDoS)

To protect and secure the application layer, companies utilize security services such as Web Application Firewalls(WAFs), secure web gateways, etc.
