HP provides application security for the LDS Church

Fifteen years ago, companies still needed to be sold on the basic need for web application security. Nobody has the luxury of that naiveté now.  Knowing you need it is one thing, though...implementing it correctly something else entirely. In fact, one of the hardest things organizations have to do is implement an application security program. For one thing, risk is a measurement unique to each organization. There’s no universal formula to define it.  There’s simply too many variables, and too many opinions. For another, security keeps getting harder for a variety of reasons. Long story short, the playing field keeps shifting.


So in a one-size-fits-nobody perfectly world,  companies are often left wondering what the best approach is. One thing that can help is seeing how other companies and organizations successfully met the same application security challenges. Here’s how one customer solved theirs with HP Fortify solutions.
