In today's world where applications are distributed through cloud and mobile platforms, the risks to vulnerable applications are multiplying. Application managers are looking for ways to consolidate controls around their disparate applications and assign the proper staff, leadership and workflow processes to do this.
Based on the 2014 Application Security Programs and Practices survey, application security is on the rise, with 83% of 488 respondents reporting some sort of application security program in place (up from 66% in SANS' 2013 survey).
