Organizations are having to manage more and more critical software applications to conduct business. These applications may be developed in-house, by an outsourcer or commercially acquired. The vast majority of these software applications will contain flaws which can constitute a security risk.
This report, delivered by the analyst firm Quocirca, looks at how businesses are deploying software and what measures are in place for checking the security of applications. The report draws on new research conducted amongst US and UK enterprises from a range of industries and assesses the scale of the software security problem, the ways in which it can be mitigated, the extent to which this is being achieved, the costs involved and how they can be minimized.
