Continuing the security industry trend of publishing infographics, the folks at Enterprise Strategy Group on Thursday published an infographic that illustrates some of the challenges associated with web application security.

Data used to generate the infographic was based on a recent ESG survey of 200 IT and info security professionals at midmarket and enterprise organizations in North America, the company said.Web Application Security Infographic

According to the responses ESG received:

Web application volume is growing. One-quarter of organizations have more than 100 web applications in production today, and this number is expected to increase steadily over the next few years.

Organizations plan to increase their investments in application security testing tools. ESG uncovered organizations’ plans to increase web application security testing, with 78% planning to increase their investment and effort in static application security testing (SAST) and 58% planning to increase their investment and effort in dynamic application security testing (DAST) tools and services over the next 12-24 months.

Many organizations use Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) throughout their web application security testing. Advanced organizations are aggressively integrating DAST tools with WAFs. This is a leading indicator of an impending trend examined in detail in the ESG report.
