Application security is one of the most prominent security concerns among today’s enterprises. That’s because third-party applications may or may not be adequately tested and secured before being offered to users. As a developer, you want your applications to have tight security; otherwise, your end users could be exposed to attacks which could result in millions of dollars in losses.
For instance, does your application use proper encryption? Does it comply with the organization’s existing security standards? These factors, and several more, can contribute to the overall security of your applications and thus the safety of the end user.
One of the most essential components of delivering a secure application is testing – and very thorough testing. Developers should never assume that an organization’s security protocols will be sufficient to remedy any inherent risks in the application’s code. Security starts first at the development level and is enhanced by additional security precautions taken by users.
