The sheer magnitude of compromised data from supposedly security-rich servers and mobile apps is shocking. Technologies such as virtualization and cloud help introduce new value to your business, but they can also add complexity to your infrastructure without really enhancing security measures. Hackers devise new ways to intercept sensitive data and plan malicious attacks on your systems every day.
The application security assessment from IBM taps the expertise of the IBM® X-Force® team to help resolve application and security issues before data thieves can exploit them.
We provide a “hacker’s eye” view of your security posture through attack simulations and assessing apps and the networks that support them. With the application security assessment, you get:
- Enhanced security and data protection
Simulated attacks identify weaknesses in your applications and provide detailed remediation steps
- Mobile application dynamic assessment
Penetration testing on mobile apps takes a hacker’s approach to identify and fix vulnerabilities that can lead to exploitation and attacks
- Improved compliance management
IBM assesses your compliance state and delivers specialized security consulting to help you manage regulatory compliance
- Reduced cost and complexity
Industry-leading assessment tools and services can be more economical than maintaining in-house security expertise
- Improved performance
The assessment helps reduce application downtime and improve productivity
- Continuous reporting
Detailed reports include recommendations for mitigating discovered risks
- Leading security intelligence and resources
