You’ve got bugs! It’s inevitable. Software flaws are everywhere. And they cause serious application security issues for any business. Look at Boeing. Bad software, two fatal crashes and now a business scrambling to find its footing. Capital One. One gap, one hacker, millions of people’s credit card data. School districts around the country, U.S. utilities. It’s pervasive. Just like software.
The good news is that with a solid plan to make consistent software health checks, finding and fixing flaws is preventative. It’s like going to the doctor when you are sick. If you don’t go for a regular physical and focus on preemptive care, you’re being reactive and limited to short-term fixes. Routine checks of software, which can happen with regular system level scans, can quickly identify big issue and help identify and catch the most dangerous flaws. Flaws can lead to system failures and leave companies susceptible to cyberattacks and more. In fact, the Department of Homeland Security reports that 90 percent of security incidents result from exploits against defects in software.
