SAAS APPLICATION MONITORING

Find vulnerabilities in web apps with SaaS application monitoring.

As organizations rely ever more heavily on web applications for critical business functions, SaaS application monitoring is quickly becoming an essential capability for IT teams charged with enterprise security.

Web applications are often of the point of attack in attempted security breaches. Their frequent weaknesses and 24/7 availability make them both an easy target for hackers and a difficult asset to protect. Complicating matters is the fact that many enterprises don’t even know how many web applications or websites they have, thanks to lapses in tracking or the complexities of mergers and acquisitions.

Traditional on-premise solutions for monitoring the web perimeter are costly and resource-intensive, and integrating them into the software development lifecycle can be problematic. That’s why so many companies seeking to improve application security turn to cloud-based, SaaS application monitoring solutions from Veracode.
