Next Application Delivery May Be Jeopardizing Security-5 Next

A mentality exists to invest in what we know.

More than half of respondents claimed that investment in quality assurance (QA) tool and process support would have the most impact on improving security across the software delivery lifecycle. Yet less than five percent blame QA for failing to detect bugs and issues. Creative Intellect advised that QA is the goalkeeper in the development process and should not be the primary investment focus.

Failure to take software security seriously is putting organizations, brands and people at risk, says software delivery analyst firm Creative Intellect Consulting in its inaugural report on the “State of Secure Application Lifecycle Management.”

The report highlights the disconnect between secure software policy and implementation, begging the question as to whether organizations are really ready and able to deliver secure software targeting technologies such as cloud computing and mobile delivery platforms.

In association with information security professional body (ISC)2® and the International Association of Software Architects (IASA), Creative Intellect conducted a survey of software development, IT and information security professionals around the world to develop its report. This slideshow highlights key findings from the report.
