Features & functions--not security--have been top-of-mind for most companies in application development. But the price for that oversight can be steep: exposed confidential data, stolen customer account information and multiple vulnerabilities.

Many of these problems can be avoided by planning for security at the starting gate--in software development. Architecture, design and coding offer opportunities to make applications and services more secure.

By taking security into account throughout the development cycle--defining security requirements, classifying data, coding securely and conducting thorough testing--you can start off on the right foot with secure applications.

So, on your mark, get set, code!
