  • Outsourcing the problem of software security

    Sponsored by: ComputerWeekly.com

     

     By Bob Tarzey and Clive Longbottom

     

    This report from analyst group Quocirca assess the benefits of using on-demand services to ensure security throughout the application life cycle.

     

    Software applications are an integral part of 21st century business processes. The majority of software is still installed in-house, either as specially developed bespoke applications or commercially acquired packages.

     

    However, the proportion of software procured as a service is on the rise, as is the use of mobile apps and open source components.

     

    In addition, more and more in-house applications are being web-enabled and exposed to the outside world.

     

    Regardless of its origin, the vast majority of software will contain flaws which can constitute a security risk, especially for those applications that are web-enabled.

     

    The report draws on new research conducted amongst US and UK enterprises from a range of industries and assesses the scale of the software security problem, the ways in which it can be mitigated, the extent to which this is being achieved, the costs involved and how these can be minimised.
