AppSec ‘Spaghetti on the Wall’ Tool Strategy Undermining Security
In order to mitigate application security risk, organizations often use a ‘spaghetti on the wall’ approach, meaning that they use lots of different tools and hope for the best, a new Radware report indicates. The most common AppSec solutions are Web Application Firewalls (WAFs, used by 75% of firms), cloud WAF services (63%) and code reviews (59%). In addition, 53% of companies used tools for dynamic application security testing (DAST), static testing (SAST) and runtime application self protection (RASP).
Despite all these solutions, a staggering 90% of companies have suffered a data breach stemming from application security issues and 88% experienced application-level attacks last year.
