A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?

Enterprises today increasingly turn to array-based snapshots and replication to augment or replace legacy data protection solutions that have been overwhelmed by data growth. The challenge is that native array snapshot tools – and alternative 3rd party solutions – have varying degrees of functionality, automation, scripting requirements, hardware support and application awareness. These approaches can add risk as well as administrative complexity and make it more difficult to realize the full potential of snapshots – whether in single disk vendor estates or in heterogeneous storage environments.
This checklist will enable you to build a shortlist of the 'must have' features needed for snapshots to deliver exactly what you require in your application environment or Private Cloud.
With cloud, mobile and all the new tools & frameworks that come with them, application development has never been so easy – or so hard.
Join leading application development expert Mark Driver of Gartner as he answers your most pressing questions, including:
What is the impact of lightweight and scripting applications traditional IT process?
How has app development changed with the rise of cloud computing?
How has mobile development changed expectations of developers and the apps they build?
Akamai’s Threat Research team analyzed a week of cross-site scripting (xss) alert triggers to gain clarity on the nature of xss attacks. Read this case study to learn which vectors are vulnerable and specific techniques that were employed during remote resource injection exploitation attempts versus simple probing requests.
This paper touches upon the following topics:
-Critical vulnerabilities are on the decline, but still pose a significant threat
-Mature technologies introduce continued risk
-Mobile platforms represent a major growth area for vulnerabilities
-Web applications remain a substantial source of vulnerabilities
-Cross-site scripting remains a major threat to organizations and users
-Effective mitigation for cross-frame scripting remains noticeably absent

Read this technical whitepaper to learn how data architects and DBAs can avoid the struggle of complex scripting for Kafka in modern data environments. You’ll also gain tips on how to avoid the time-consuming hassle of manually configuring data producers and data type conversions. Specifically, this paper will guide you on how to overcome these challenges by leveraging innovative technology such as Attunity Replicate. The solution can easily integrate source metadata and schema changes for automated configuration real-time data feeds and best practices.
In this paper, learn how a proven workload automation solution can help you shorten development time and get Hadoop applications into production more quickly. By replacing scripting with the standard functions provided by a workload automation system, you can also deliver an application that is simpler, more reliable, and easier to debug once in production.
Why should we bother automating deployments in the first place? What should the scope of the automation effort be? How do we get started? This white paper provides a solid introduction to these topics.

Two of the oldest and most common attacks used against web applications, SQL injection attacks and cross-site scripting attacks (XSS), continue to impact thousands of websites and millions of users each year. Finding these exposures quickly is essential in order to prevent system compromise and avoid information leakage. SIEM solutions can be invaluable in this effort by collecting and correlating the data you need to identify patterns that signal an attack.
Businesses can gain greater value from their BI investment by improving the way in which data flows to the BI system are managed. Many problems result when the ETL process is handled by a patchwork of scripting, custom coding, and various built-in schedulers that are part of existing ETL solutions, because these systems do not provide end-to-end execution, monitoring, and control of the ETL process.
Microsoft Windows Deployment Services (WDS) provides an accessible, flexible way to perform mass deployments of current and legacy Windows operating systems. Using customized answer files and taking advantage scripting and other tools with WDS can help dramatically reduce the time to perform highly configured mass deployments with minimal infrastructure impact.
DigiCert implemented Imperva to protect their hybrid environment. They
were already using Imperva’s WAF on-premises to defend against Layer 7
attacks, known threats, and zero-day attacks to rapidly identify the threats
that required investigation. By expanding their usage of Imperva, DigiCert
was able to extend protection to AWS and maintain their security posture
both during and after migration.
Imperva’s sophisticated threat detection technology draws upon vast
experience in the WAF market. As traffic passes through their network,
advanced client classification technology (together with crowdsourcing
and IP reputation data) automatically analyzes it to identify and block web
application attacks. These include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, illegal
resource access, comment spam, site scraping, malicious bots, and other
top threats. Granular filters and controls reduce false positives and prevent
access from unwanted visitors, while IP address shielding hides the web
No question the UI in electronic devices today is playing a larger role in the success of a device. Get the UI wrong and your product will have little chance of surviving. And it isn’t enough to deliver a UI that is merely functional: it has to look good too. Studies have shown that a good cosmetic design can encourage users to explore the full range of features and often, can engender the perception that a product is easier to use, which can make consumers more tolerant of product deficiencies.

Traditional antivirus (AV) just doesn’t cut it anymore. From ransomware that holds intellectual property hostage to sophisticated malware-less attacks that exploit PowerShell, scripting, and memory, endpoints are facing more security risk than ever before. As a result, companies have set their sights on the next generation of lightweight AV solutions.
Cloud computing is becoming a key IT resource, but securing applications and data in the cloud remains a concern. Secure remote access tech, web application firewalls, network-side scripting and other strategies can make cloud deployments secure.
As the use of mobile devices exponentially expands, so too does security threats to the increasing number of mobile applications that companies rely on. As a result, companies struggle to keep pace with mobile application security and face the risk of embarrassing and costly data breaches.
In this technical session, you’ll learn how Worklight Application Scanning helps you deliver applications that aren’t susceptible to the most common types of malware, including SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting. In addition, you’ll learn how this powerful tool helps address the OWASP Top 10 Mobile Risks for 2014.
