Download Software applications need to be delivered faster and across more platforms than ever. To build high quality software in short order, we've seen a dramatic shift from source code to component-based development, with open source and third party components providing the innovation and efficiency that developers need. Unfortunately, our dependence on components is growing faster than our ability to secure them. Worse yet, components are increasingly the preferred attack surface in today's applications. The combination of growing component usage, coupled with lack of security, requires us to urgently re-evaluate traditional application security approaches. Read this paper to identify practical next steps for closing this security gap.
