Application security

Say - "app security should be considered in larger application development projects". Boooo - you're wrong, oh how very wrong you are! Mobile technologies made it clear – security is a much too often overlooked but extremely important aspect of every single application development project.

Even for a lone cowboy who's coding free mobile apps. Do you want apps on your phone for which not even an author knows in how many ways they can be exploited to get to your data or lock up your device? Single developers should use at least a code audit plugin for their IDE, preferably with some security checks. And then there are of course commercial application security solutions for development teams and software companies. Start using them now, because you will not believe how much the cost of security rises if it's introduced later in the project.
