The enterprise cybersecurity world is facing a shakeup. Traditional methods, such as firewalls and anti-malware, are proving insufficient to the task of today’s configurations. With mobile devices, varied network connection points and cloud services all in play, companies can’t simply create a border and expect to keep it closed against attacks.

Instead, organizations need adaptable security that can be built into every layer of the IT setup. This sounds like a lot to deal with, especially as mobile devices and corresponding apps explode into widespread use. However, mobile application development platforms can create data protection opportunities that weren’t readily present in the past.

Enterprise Cybersecurity World Shakeup Organizations need adaptable security that can be built into every layer of the IT setup What is Needed The Scope of the Cybersecurity Problem The number of tracked data breaches last year climbed to 1,579,   a 44.7 percent year-over-year increase. The Scope of the Cybersecurity Problem There are a variety of ways to handle cybersecurity in today’s climate, and most businesses will need to mix and match different options to adequately keep up with the threats that are out there. However, focusing on the applications themselves, not the closed-off enterprise system, is increasingly important. Secure the App The App Development Magazine report suggests companies focus on securing the apps themselves. The logic is simple – if you can’t control the device or the user, you can at least take ownership of the app. Application development platforms  can offer opportunities for app-level security that don’t require the complicated backend work, and Appian is leading the way in driving innovation in the space. Application Development Platforms With the core architecture providing a vital layer of data protection, organizations can then set up checks and balances to ensure that the actual applications operate in secure ways. Using a Platform to Establish Security Our platform is constructed with business process management functionality in place, meaning it doesn’t just let you build and control apps, it also enables users to establish process frameworks and automate many elements of regulatory compliance. What's More Single sign-on functionality Leverage pre-built, pre-tested code Automate policy enforcement through built-in checks Establish data workflow guidelines Remove the security burden from the device and the user Create role management profiles The Appian Records system lets you incorporate robust records management functionality, including integration with legacy systems, into the controlled platform. These capabilities combine with process management tools to make our platform a regulatory compliance powerhouse. We're in Line with these Industry Standards: SOC 2 and 3 PCI DSS HIPAA FISMA FEDRAMP GxP UK G-Cloud Our platform is built with security in mind and it extends data protection through the apps, workflows and processes to drive data protection without getting in the way of innovation.
