In its sixth year, the OutSystems State of Application Development Report provides a comprehensive analysis of the challenges, priorities, and innovations faced by IT teams around the globe, at a time when organizational agility has never been so important.
Agility is the central theme of this year’s report because businesses and their IT organizations face a multitude of disruptive forces in 2019. The threat of digital disruption and the consequent need for digital transformation has been a driver of IT strategy for years. Add to that the current uncertain global economic outlook, and it becomes obvious why business leaders are so concerned about agility today.
How will IT “step up to the plate” and ensure that their organizations have the speed and adaptability to thrive, despite uncertainty?
This context serves as the backdrop to our sixth annual survey of IT professionals as we seek to understand the state of application development better. We set out with five critical questions
From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded.
The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp

Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.

Enterprises, beware. Threat actors are continuing to eye businesses for high returns on investment in Q1 2019, breaching infrastructure, exfiltrating or holding data hostage, and abusing weak credentials for continued, targeted monitoring. From a steadfast increase of pervasive Trojans, such as Emotet, to a resurgence of ransomware lodged against corporate targets, cybercriminals are going after organizations with a vengeance.
Yet every cloud has a silver lining, and for all the additional effort thrown at businesses, consumer threats are now on the decline. Ransomware against consumers has slowed down to a trickle and cryptomining, at a fever pitch against consumers this time last year, has all but died. Interestingly, this has resulted in an overall decline in the volume of malware detections from Q4 2018 to Q1 2019.
While threat actors made themselves busy with challenging new victims, they ensnared targets in the old ways, using tried-and-true malspam and social engineering tactic

Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever. As a result, companies that for years have taken a traditional approach to managing initiatives are moving rapidly to implement agile business practices. And they’re seeing results, in the form of improved quality, faster delivery of value, reduced development costs and increased customer satisfaction.
But this transition also creates new challenges and responsibilities for the project management office (PMO). In fact, the success of the transformation often hinges on the PMO’s ability to expand the underlying concepts of the agile development methodology into a companywide ethos¬—a concept known as business agility.

Recent attacks targeting mobile apps and operating systems have put an unprecedented amount of mobile business data at risk. Many enterprises are unprepared to combat the latest mobile threats:
One in 10 enterprises have at least one compromised device.
More than 53% have at least one device that is not in compliance with corporate security policies.
This white paper outlines how to protect enterprise data while realizing the transformative benefits of mobility.
Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.
Michael Parrish Dudell, bestselling author and one of the nation’s leading Millennial voices, explains why now, more than ever, is the time for businesses to anticipate the rapidly evolving expectations of the new workforce or face the very real threat of irrelevance. Read the brief to get the facts on the huge impact Millennials are making in the workplace:
• Within the next three years, Millennials will make up the majority of the workforce
• By 2025, they will comprise a whopping 75% of workers
• In the last five years, 87 percent of Millennials took on management roles—up 75% from the five years prior
The world is an uncertain place. Particularly for cyber security professionals, many of whom have learned the hard way that they can’t rest on their laurels. New technologies and fresh threats are constantly emerging, and these threats come from both outside and within organizations. In our 2019 privileged access threat research, we discovered that almost two thirds of respondents (64%) think it is likely they’ve suffered a breach due to employee access, while 58% say the same about vendors.
Meanwhile, the devices intended to make life easier can expose businesses further. Although hostile, external attacks are considered a significant or moderate concern by 61% of businesses, the threat of misused or abused insider access follows very closely behind at 58%. At the same time, 57% of security decision makers perceive at least a moderate risk from Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies and the Internet of Things (IoT) at 57%.
In this fourth edition of BeyondTrust’s annual Privileged Acces
