Verizon Business has unveiled its Application Security Program in attempt to protect the applications layer of business services from cyberattacks.
A recent Verizon Business survey showed something in this area was needed. Of the 285 million compromised records from the 90 confirmed breaches in 2008 that were examined by the report, nearly 80 percent were compromised via Web applications.
The company is also making security certification available. That will allow businesses to meet regulations that often add to their costs.
