You may not believe this, but once there was a time when security was not that important in the world of IT, websites and apps. Apps used to be created without taking web application security into account. People didn’t even get what web application isolation was.
However, nowadays we can’t even imagine a business without secure IT. Of course, you don’t want to take the risk of having a security breach while opening your web apps or web content to the outside world. A security breach can be caused by vulnerabilities in your system or your APIs. The open web application security project (OWASP) played a big part in the progress of web app isolation. They document web app vulnerabilities in a top 10. This includes vulnerabilities like logging and monitoring failures, sensitive data exposure, xme external entities xxe, broken access control and components with known vulnerabilities.
More than ever it’s truly important that only the right people (thinking about co-workers and customers) have access to your sensitive data. Anywhere and anytime. Whether they are having a cocktail drink in the Bahamas using your apps or checking your data while hiking with a backpack in the Monteverde jungle of Costa Rica, looking for sloths. Whether it’s 4 a.m. or 11 p.m.
