Why are so many threats against applications succeeding? Finding a software vulnerability is only part of the problem. Reused open source code and third party applications pose new challenges because you can't fix vulnerabilities for codes you don't have access to.

In this webcast, SANS application security expert Eric Johnson looks at the application security landscape, and provides perspective on the following questions:

  • What percentage of applications is custom built versus commercial off-the-shelf software?
  • What types of applications are of most concern (hint: .NET and Java apps)?
  • What threats are getting through to applications?
  • Who do enterprises think is responsible for application security?
  • What is the average time to repair vulnerabilities in applications?
  • How can you speed up detection and repair of application vulnerabilities?
  • How can you block application-based attacks with confidence?

Because it runs in the application, RASP (Run-Time Application Self Protection) is an emerging technology that can help protect applications against unknown threats and protect against vulnerabilities while a patch becomes available. This technology will also be discussed.
