What is Application Security?

Application security is the process of deploying steps and protocols by organizations and developers to identify, repair, and protect applications against security weaknesses throughout the application life cycle. Although application security usually occurs over several phases, the best practices can easily be established during the software development life cycle (SDLC). Application security certifications and trainings will help software developers to:

  • Deploy security controls, tools, and processes.
  • Understand the risks and weaknesses in an application.
  • Application security testing.
  • Secure application design and architecture.
  • Secure deployment and maintenance.
  • Secure coding practices for input validation.
