Ensuring adherence to the variety of industry and organizational security requirements can be a daunting task for development teams, application owners, and network operators alike. Security policy authors and owners don’t always have the best visibility or technical involvement in application development and deployment. This can necessitate a lot of facilitation on the part of security operation teams to ensure that policy is being met and adhered to not just during the implementation phase, but over the lifecycle of an application.
Using application delivery templatization tools such as iApps and iWorkflow, we can build technical security controls right into our application delivery toolkits once, and have deployed apps automatically inherit pre-approved technical measures that ensure that security policy is not only applied at delivery time, but remains firmly in place for the lifecycle of the application. Let app owners worry about the app and simply inherit the technical measures requisite to get their app out the door with the right controls, right now.
