An internal security team in a software company is critical to ensure application security. One of the main selling points is that a dedicated team is able to stay on top of the latest knowledge about the latest types of attacks.
The world of cybercrime is constantly changing, and there are always new threats to watch out for. If an internal security team receives regular training and stays informed of the latest developments, they can respond effectively to these threats. Measures can be taken proactively to protect applications against attacks. Test environments in which periodic tests are performed on an ongoing basis, support for emergencies and, of course, training are all part of the process. For example, if employees are poorly trained, settings in the backend or on the server can be misconfigured, enabling attacks.
A dedicated internal security team is also able to respond quickly to threats. When a threat occurs, they can act immediately to minimize the impact on applications and systems. This can help ensure that vulnerabilities are quickly remediated before major security issues or even business outages occur.
In addition, a software vendor's internal security team can work closely with other teams. This ensures that security issues are addressed at all stages of the development process. And this, in turn, helps ensure that security vulnerabilities are avoided from the start and that applications are developed securely from the ground up.
