Application security is the general practice of adding features or functionality to software to prevent a range of different threats. These include denial of service attacks and other cyberattacks, and data breaches or data theft situations. There are 2 types of Application Security:
Testing tools, commonly referred to as application security testing (AST) tools. These are designed for software development teams (and their testing and ops colleagues working in a DevOps fashion) who need to ensure that security is built into applications prior to deployment.
Runtime protection tools, which are designed to protect applications running in their target, operational environments. Runtime tools protect against a variety of incoming threats after an application is delivered and deployed.
The global application security market is expected to reach $10.7 billion by 2025. Increasing targeted attacks on these applications are anticipated to be a major factor that is expected to drive market growth. In addition, BYOD adoption in the organisations that are deploying application security services and solutions to protect against potential threats has contributed to the market demand.
