Application security and product security#
Regrettably, application security teams often intervene late in the development process. They maintain the security level of exposed software, ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of consumed or produced data. They focus on securing data flows, isolating environments with firewalls, and implementing strong user authentication and access control.
Product security teams aim to guarantee the intrinsic reliability of applications. They recommend tools and resources, making them available to developers and operations. In the DevSecOps approach, each team is responsible for the security of the applications they create. These teams apply secure coding practices, perform static and dynamic testing, and ensure that applications are resistant to exploitation, sensitive data remains secure, and the applications can handle loads and attacks.
