Enterprise Cyber Security: 3 Ways to Protect Your Apps

Are you an enterprise business that implements apps into the day-to-day operational processes? If so, have you ever considered the security risks involved with using these apps, and how a compromise to your network can damage your business?

You only have to look at the media to see examples of how business’s data are affected by malicious internet users can damage businesses, either bringing down their networks, stealing data, or deleting it entirely.

However, while apps are an essential part of your business, you’ll need to be proactive in making sure you’re protecting yourself from these dangers, minimizing the risk of a breach, and ultimately the problems involved with this.

Today, we’re going to explore three ways you can protect your enterprise apps from these dangers, maximizing the safety of your business.

Fortifying the Mobile Device

One of the first and most important steps you’ll need to take is making sure the mobile devices of your users are protected. This will be the first point of call for hackers and dangers and will be the areas of your system with the most vulnerabilities.

Apple devices are renowned for being the most secure devices, thanks to their strict app store guidelines, but that doesn’t mean they are completely protected. Always make sure every device that has your enterprise apps installed are password-protected, have anti-virus and security software, and are always running the latest firmware.

Install an Embedded Protection Service

In addition to protecting your front-end devices, you can also invest in protecting the very core of your enterprise apps. You can do this by installing a service that embeds itself directly into the source code of your apps, protecting your data and network from malicious entities.

There are many services that can help with this, such as the Signal Sciences runtime application self-protection service. With services like this, you won’t have to install heavyweight mods that can slow your app’s performance down but can still protect you against all kinds of attack types, all backed by the data that’s collected from over 100 billion data requests a week.

Encrypting Your Connections

With both ends of your app and the end device protected, you’ll now want to focus on the connection between the two. Regardless of whether your app is used on a portable smart device, or through a computer (desktop or laptop), the connections you’re using will need to be secured.

The industry-standard here would be to implement an SSL 256-bit encryption service, along with an API that requires app-level authentication. You can send your more sensitive data to memory, which can be easily wiped, therefore keeping it much more secure.

Conclusion

 Using enterprise applications within your business can help you take your organization to previously impossible heights by streamlining operations and making your data more accessible. However, as with any online venture, data and security should be a top priority. Using the three methods above, you can lock down your network and connections, finishing the risk of any problems occurring.

Low Rate DDoS Attack

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
