Managing Apps in the Enterprise Can Be a Risky Business

Managing applications in the enterprise can be a risky business.  Organizations are under constant attack by hackers targeting applications used by employees. The University of Maryland quantified the near-constant rate of attacks on computers with Internet access to every 39 seconds.  In the latest Vulnerability Review 2017, published by Secunia Research, the absolute number of vulnerabilities detected in 2016 was 17,147, discovered in 2,136 applications from 246 vendors.   Attackers can easily take advantage of security holes in these programs because they are so widespread.

The best defense requires a holistic approach and collaboration of different teams in a concerted effort to reduce the attack surface for hackers.  Whether you are an asset manager, a desktop or datacenter manager, or an IT security professional, your role in the enterprise software asset lifecycle has a significant impact on your organizations ability to reduce the risk of cyber-attack.
