Application Security

Application security: Protect enterprise-critical applications.

In the course of digitalisation, many companies have made their applications accessible from outside the network or installed them on publicly available infrastructure so that employees and customers can reach them as well. This includes customer portals, the CRM systems and important ERP systems. These developments are placing huge demands on security and the protection of vulnerabilities. According to the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), most attacks on businesses are multi-vector attacks that go unnoticed. Using an incorrectly programmed code, applications such as invoicing systems and online shops are targeted as a way of getting into the network and accessing other apps and data, which is why the traditional approach of only securing the network and data centre falls short. Application pen testing and regular vulnerability scans to pick up known and unknown weaknesses both inside and outside of the network are as much part of an application security concept as, for example, leveraging modern web application firewalls and multi-factor authentication for securely accessing web applications.

A security concept at application level is part and parcel of every modern IT architecture.

How you can protect your apps with application security and Bechtle.

Protect your critical web apps and databases from direct attacks such as SQL injection, DDoS and cross-site scripting. Application attacks can affect online shop systems and critical internal tools such as your CMS or ERP. By exploiting known vulnerabilities in widely used standard apps, attackers can have a field day if they are not additionally protected. Web application security doesn’t only keep corporate data secure, but also user data, i.e. your customers. Prevent attackers from getting between you and your customers and web apps and stealing user data or compromising your critical applications. Attacks targeting web applications are often carried out by criminals.

Professionally protect your web applications from current and future threats with support from Bechtle, that ensures your database is safe and that no threats arise through unauthorised SQL parameters so application vulnerabilities don’t become vulnerabilities for the entire system.

Web application security – a definition.

Generally speaking, this describes secure access to web applications and the necessity to ensure that these apps aren’t compromised or paralysed.

To do so, it is necessary that these applications’ codes do not contain any security gaps and that the applications themselves can be scaled up and down. It’s important to ensure the data centre hosting the required infrastructure cannot be crippled by, for example, DDoS attacks.

By leveraging technologies such as  web application firewall, we secure individual applications without the need to make any changes to them. The firewall defends against attacks via the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) using cross-site scripting and SQL injection. In contrast to a standard firewall, a web application firewall checks data on an application level.

This more sophisticated firewall checks all incoming and outgoing queries to a web server and prevents suspicious connections, all the while learning standard behaviours in order to distinguish between normal and malicious use such as a database query that sends invalid parameters via SQL.

Bechtle has a complete package of solutions that help companies protect against today’s and future threats. Secure crucial databases and web applications against attacks without having the change them.

Web Application Security

Web application security.

Bechtle takes on application security so that your web apps are protected at all times and can be reliably used by your employees and customers. Bechtle experts protect your critical web applications and sensitive data with our tailored security concept. Don’t let your online shop or CRM fall victim to an attack, because if they are successful, the consequences could be enormous and lead to a shortfall in revenues, data protection regulation breaches and damage to the organisation’s reputation.

Web Application Firewall

Application security has four elements:

For example: 

  • Web application firewall
  • Database security
  • Authentication
  • Penetration testing
  • Fuzzing

secure. now and then.

Application security:

Protect your applications today and into the future.

Digitalisation and the increasing interlinking of services and applications has led to a growing number of potential attack points in corporate IT. The more services and applications can be accessed externally, the greater the risk to your systems from multi-vector attacks that go for multiple targets simultaneously, and simple firewalls around the data centre and network simply aren’t enough anymore. Bechtle’s experts support your application security with consultation, security pen testing, integration and operation of systems required to secure your web applications and ultimately your business processes. Bechtle implements and configures the best solutions to protect important applications from new and ever-more sophisticated attacks.
