Partners say developers must talk security with customers from the start.
Security’s complicated characteristics mean there is no one simple solution to secure application and software development, according to channel players.
Andrew McDonnell, VP of security solutions at AsTech, told Channelnomics there is no fix-all solution to handle the security challenges software developers face.
“The kinds of software that we’re frequently interacting with are things like mobile applications or web interfaces to a customer’s existing infrastructure, so the interactions at that level are always going to be complicated,” he explained to Channelnomics. “The security implications, even if considered ahead of time, may not be entirely clear, and so there’s no way to snap your fingers and make security problems go away.”
