Application Security Consulting

The security of application assets are a key concern for most organizations. The main issue is the lack of appropriate application security controls, which raise fears of regulatory noncompliance, business continuity failures and compromise of data. While the issue is well understood, there is a need for an effective end-to-end set of services that establishes an application security baseline which is holistic and sufficiently mitigates risk.

Holistic application security covers compliance and business security requirements, secure development best practices, operational security application frameworks for identity, access, business continuity and monitoring.
