Application security

Gain web and mobile app protection
without limiting business operations

To thrive in today’s connected business arena, your apps and employees need Internet access—and increasingly, that access is through mobile devices. In fact, more people worldwide have mobile devices than use toothbrushes.1 It’s no surprise that mobile devices are doubly appealing to hackers for personal and business data.

IBM Application Security Services helps you assess your current and future web use requirements and then provides the layered security protection designed to address today’s worst threats. Businesses and users alike can protect themselves by applying basic security best practices around passwords, network segmentation and security-rich software development.
