The path of least resistance for cyber-criminals is often to attack well-known vulnerabilities in enterprise-developed web and mobile applications. This infographic shows that large enterprises have thousands of applications to address in order to minimize the risk of a data breach.

On average, enterprises spend $1.65 million to test 37% of their applications for security vulnerabilities commonly used by cyber-criminals use to attack enterprises. This assessment gap leaves the majority of an enterprise’s application inventory open to attack.

The data is from a survey of 306 enterprises of over $500M in revenue in the US, UK, Germany and Switzerland.
