5 Most Important Security Measures To Secure Your Custom Application
5 most important security measures to secure your custom application – Custom software development is the process of developing software for a specific set of users, functions, or organizations. Such software is designed to address specific needs within an organization, as opposed to the more traditional, standard software used by the general public.
Maintenance and development of custom applications like enterprise software, CRMs, CMS, payroll system and other management systems include optimization, modernization, and management. Application customization refers to modifying commercial off-the-shelf software applications to support individual requirements. Application modernization plays an important role in maintaining the viability of the business’ custom software to meet growing modernization and market demands. Application management makes software effective by supporting tasks such as installation, updates, performance and availability optimization, and service desk functions.
What is meant by security in terms of custom applications and why is it important?
Custom application security describes security measures at the application level, intended to prevent data or code within the app from being stolen or hijacked. Application security may include firewalls, DNS level proxies, intrusion detection systems and input filtering processes that identify or mitigates security vulnerabilities.
Application security is important as the software are now mostly running over the internet, vulnerabilities, security threats and breaches are increasing. As a result, there is an increasing pressure to ensure security not only at the network level but also in the applications themselves.
