App-Layer Security in Real Time

Cross-Industry White Paper

Network Encryption Isn’t Enough

Traditional protection approaches are increasingly ineffective against the most dangerous type of cyber threats like ransomware (which is rising 40% year-by-year). Old security mostly monitors the infrastructure layer of IT environments such as network activity and overlooks a host of growing app vulnerabilities. Indeed — 43% of databases in the cloud are unencrypted.

Even proper disk-level encryption (itself rare) won’t be enough to keep data safe. A new approach to enterprise-wide cybersecurity is therefore gaining traction, which aims to offer visibility into apps — this includes monitoring baseline application for expected behaviors/dependencies — not just network patterns.

Know Your Risks
Most attacks are “outside in” which is enabled by:
20 OSS components per app…  each with a prerequisite licence(s)
91% of commercial apps being outdated…  in terms of third-party code management
At least half of apps having security vulnerabilities… in industries, and 50% for mobile banking apps

Outdated AppSec Risks

Poor SDLC encryptions

that encourage attackers, as with Equifax’s preventable breach.

Uncertainty of stakeholders

due to failed ad hoc tool stacks.

No DevSecOps

leading to more compliance threats.

Poor app penetration

which causes cascading vulnerabilities  that eventually does reputational damage.
