Keep customer data secure and build customer confidence
While application security is mostly about mitigating risk from both internal and third-party sources, it also maintains your brand image by keeping your customer data secure, which builds customer confidence
How do most businesses find out they have insufficient application security controls or practices? Well, either your IT partner or team carries out a penetration test where the report comes back with lots of red flags – or you get hacked. This could happen for a range of reasons that lead to gaps in your IT security. Assuming you don't want to be hacked, it is best practice to engage a partner such as The Missing Link to help close these security gaps.
Risk mitigation: All apps introduce risk. Designers might not have anticipated the risks or have left vulnerabilities simply due to a lack of expertise.
At The Missing Link, we can operate in-depth testing from the start and run reports on your existing app landscape.
