Indecent Exposure

Read this whitepaper to review why today's application security leaves enterprises wide open to attacks. And even worse? The adoption of these tools has caused tensions within businesses and in some cases, cultivated a false sense of security. A new approach for securing applications will be introduced to provide the speed, visibility, and accuracy across the entire application portfolio while delivering all layers of defense organizations need.

Continuous Application Security Handbook

We reject the old paradigm of periodic and serial scanning, hacking, and patching, which has proven expensive and ineffective. Instead, Continuous Application Security (CAS) relies on security instrumentation in every application to provide security visibility, assessment, and protection in real-time and in parallel across the entire application portfolio.
