VIDEO: Adobe Chief Security Officer Brad Arkin explains how his company went from dealing with zero-day flaws on a regular basis to making security a core principle of the entire company’s development efforts.
There was a time when Adobe Systems’ products, particularly its Flash and PDF Reader applications were constantly attacked and exploited with a seemingly endless stream of zero-day flaws. Those days are now mostly in the past, as Adobe has made security an embedded part of its development process and rebuilt Flash and Reader to be more resilient and secure.
Leading the charge for Adobe’s product security efforts is Chief Security Officer Brad Arkin. In a video interview with eWEEK, Arkin explains how he transformed his organization from being in constant damage-control mode, to now being on a more sane and stable, security footing.
