Application & Cloud Security: Our Vision & Roadmap for Your Digital Transformation

The start of a new year is a perfect opportunity to make new resolutions. If ‘going digital’ is part of this new year’s resolution list for your business to evolve and grow, we can help you achieve this goal by securing your digital future. With an ever-accelerating pace of digital transformation embraced by most businesses across all industry sectors, it is essential that cybersecurity vendors underpinning that change are able to commit themselves to a roadmap adapted to the changing technological landscape while providing true value to users. Our vision & roadmap demonstrate such commitment by a sustainable strategy and execution plan while disclosing the uniqueness of our products.

1 Our mission

The creation of new digital services aims to enhance people’s access to data that is relevant to them, to facilitate direct interaction with the organization, and aims to improve customer satisfaction and loyalty. Applications are the conduit to digital data in an open world and will continue to be the central force behind any online experience. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity’s Application & Cloud Security portfolio facilitates the transition to digital by securing applications and data made available to people.

2 API economy

Digital transformation is mostly based on web technologies made accessible to everyone and powered by Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Even mobile applications are talking to backends through APIs. APIs are becoming an important part of any development project as they allow to create new apps that tap into other web services. APIs allow businesses to benefit from an increasing number of applications including homegrown apps. But the flip side of the coin is that with each API implementation the attack surface is increased, and so is the potential exposure to vulnerabilities and the risk of attack. Did you know that the largest data breach of 2018 was actually API-related? And although APIs and websites are impacted by the same web threats, their risks profiles are fundamentally different, obliging APIs to be protected by distinct and effective security measures.

3 Continuous integration

Continuous integration is the practice of creating new solutions often and fast for complex software development processes within an agile framework. Widely used, it calls out for security integration in order to avoid the pitfalls of “panic patching” and to streamline security into what is often referred to as DevSecOps movement. Injecting security into the DevOps cycle makes it an integral part of the product development process thus avoiding security bottleneck while allowing to develop more secure applications faster.

4 Ubiquitous security

Today infrastructure teams require the flexibility to deploy application on premise, into mono-cloud, multi-cloud, or hybrid cloud. The cloud offers scalable SaaS products for software vendors, also offering flexible data storage, and effective collaboration. The cloud may even provide a better level of protection but multiple deployments must be supported by ubiquitous security capable of retaliating against to the changing threats.

5 Cloud integration

Cloud adoption is accelerating leading to higher integration rates between different cloud providers and platforms, as well as between cloud-hosted and local or on-premises resources. While the cloud promise is mainly fulfilled by greater flexibility and lower costs, cloud integration raises a set of daunting challenges. The fear of vendor lock-in is often called out as a main impediment to cloud service adoption. The best way to avoid vendor lock-in is to choose a service where multi-cloud and hybrid cloud scenarios can leverage agnostic technologies (pick-in), including the security layer associated to the application. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity supports agnostic technologies within the most comprehensive mix of public and private clouds to limit the cloud vendor lock-in and allow you to benefit from multi-cloud or hybrid cloud deployments best able to scale and handle any peaks of traffic.
