WhiteHat Application Security Report is a Call to Arms for DevOps Teams

WhiteHat Security, the leading application security provider committed to securing digital businesses, has released its 2018 Application Security Statistics Report, “The Evolution of the Secure Software Lifecycle,” which identifies the security vulnerabilities and challenges introduced into the enterprise through traditional applications, and through agile development frameworks, microservices, application programming interfaces (APIs), and cloud architectures.

WhiteHat’s annual study was published in partnership with NowSecure, providers of automated mobile app security testing; and Coalfire, providers of cyber risk management and compliance services for public and private enterprises.

One of the greatest concerns discovered by these methods, alongside WhiteHat’s application security testing, is that with few exceptions, the number of serious vulnerabilities per site has increased across all major industries, despite some improvements in finance, healthcare, and retail.
