In the application development processor, security often comes at the end of the cycle. All too often, it came at the very end, once design, development and testing were completed. The result was often apps that were insecure and difficult if not impossible to secure. So IBM is taking a new approach and adding the security portion of an app during development. The result should be more secure apps from the start, reports Datamation.
IBM is enhancing its portfolio of application-development security technologies and services this week, offering improved access, source-code analysis and security-assessment services.
The new releases from IBM (NYSE: IBM) include the AppScan Source Code Edition, Tivoli Access Manager and a services capability for source code assessment. With the product rollout, IBM is expanding its efforts to enable enterprises to secure both applications and access.
