Happiness is…securing your app before you launch it!

Today is the UN International Day of Happiness, and for us over at HP Security, happiness is securing your app before you launch it!

 

The bad guys know that your everyday applications are full of vulnerabilities! Did you know that when studying mobile vulnerabilities, we found that:

• 56% of the apps tested revealed information about the app, its implementation or its users
• 74% exhibited unnecessary permissions
• 80% were open to misconfiguration vulnerabilities

 

That does NOT make us happy, and in the era of BYOD, it’s extremely dangerous!

 

HP is dedicated to making you happy when it comes to security—whether it's legacy in-house code or a new cloud service you've authorized, we can help you detect, prioritize and remediate application security vulnerabilities. We help build application security capabilities into the early stages of application architecture and design, rather than later—so your app security is built in from the beginning of the application lifecycle.

 

To learn about keeping your apps secure, plus more, join us for a webinar on March 25th: Beyond Best Practices—Lessons from the HP Cyber Risk Report.

 

We want to know what security endeavors make YOU happy. Tweet us @Hpsecurity and use the hashtag #HappyDay. And of course, we wish you true happiness (and app security)!
