Does Application Security Pay?

With the escalating number and increasing sophistication of cyber attacks, perimeter defenses are no longer enough. Enterprises must ensure application vulnerabilities don't open doors for hackers. Mainstay surveyed 12 organisations that implemented application vulnerability testing with HP Fortify. Their findings: HP Fortify customers reduced application vulnerabilities from hundreds to tens, the average time to fix them from weeks to hours, and time-to-market delays due to vulnerabilities from 120 days-per-year to none. And companies who used HP Fortify on Demand - a cloud-based solution - saw results and achieved time to value faster.
