Software Industry

The software industry is changing rapidly with more scrutiny than ever before. The shift from supporting applications in house to a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model has changed the rules and put more focus on third party relationships. Software organizations offering hosted solutions and services are now required to meet a number of industry standards and federal regulations.

According to recent research from Symantec, approximately 75% of all web applications on the market have some form of vulnerability contained within them. The software industry faces a number of challenges, including:

  • Fast paced development cycles
  • Web applications are a preferred attack vector for hackers
  • Ease of use and Information Security compete at times
