Developing Secure Applications
Most applications developed over the past 20 years use 3-tier architectures and connect as one big application user to the database. This shift in security models was driven by the Internet, the resulting ability to make applications easily accessible and the need to scale to thousands of users. At the same time, however, security requirements such as identity propagation, fine-grained security and auditing have become important security controls. Additionally, compliance and privacy regulations continue to emerge and threats to data continue to evolve. The number, size and frequency of data breaches seem to be accelerating.
Real application security provides a declarative interface that allows developers to define the data security policy, application roles, and application users with ease. It ensures uniform data security while securing end-user identity propagation - providing better security minus the performance trade-off.
Less headaches and more proactive measures against threats
Many organisations in the government, banking and healthcare sectors have stringent requirements to follow. This is why solutions have to constantly provide newer and more robust security and compliance features. Organisations today expect advanced security capabilities which include protective, detective and administrative controls. By providing a fully integrated security product/tool, businesses can make better decisions and take a more proactive approach towards preventing data crime.
