Don’t settle for cobbled together application protection
Truly comprehensive security should come from a single provider
According to Gartner, “by 2021 more than half of enterprises that use application shielding will do so via a single, multi-channel application protection platform.”1
Application protection is somewhat like cooking. If you start with quality ingredients and put them together just right, the end result can be magic. But even if you start with the best ingredients, yet fail in the execution, the finished product may be unappetizing. Unfortunately, poorly executed application security results in more than a dissatisfied palate — it can be disastrous for your brand, your bottom line and your customers.
A recent announcement about a collaboration between two application security providers would lead many to believe that simply mixing two separate solutions together produces a single comprehensive solution. The idea of combining two less robust offerings together to fill gaps in feature functionality seems like a good idea in theory. The reality is that different solutions, created by separate development teams jammed together in one application, don’t make for a seamless experience — let alone sufficient protection.
Rather than settle for a cobbled together application protection solution that may cause you heartburn in the long run, find out out how Arxan can help you close the application security loop — no matter what platform or language you need protected.
