Dark Reading Launches New Tech Center On Application Security

New Dark Reading subsite will offer news, analysis, and commentary on application security issues

This week Dark Reading launches a new feature: the Application Security Tech Center, a subsite of Dark Reading devoted to bringing you more detailed news, insight, and in-depth reporting on the vulnerabilities and threats that affect today's applications, and the tools and practices for defending them.

This new feature is the 15th of our Dark Reading Tech Centers, which are designed to provide you with a more focused view of specific issues, threats, and technologies in the world of IT security. The Tech Centers offer in-depth reports and studies, breaking news, and links to additional articles and information not found on the main Dark Reading site. Just as a traditional newspaper offers in-depth sections or supplements on sports, entertainment, or politics, the Dark Reading Tech Centers provide an additional range of news and information for readers who have an interest in specific aspects of IT security.

While Dark Reading has always covered issues related to application security, we are excited to have a new, focused subsite in which to explore the day-to-day issues that security administrators and applications administrators must wrestle with. For many, enterprises are both the crown jewels -- the tools that make the business run -- and the most frequently targeted asset that attackers go after.

Our additional coverage will explore the ways that attackers target applications, and the latest exploits used to crack them. Just as important, we'll offer more in-depth coverage of how enterprises can build a layered defense to protect their applications -- not just individually, but as an IT discipline.

We'll also look at the application development process -- how security can be baked into new applications, and how you can vet new off-the-shelf applications to ensure they aren't introducing new vulnerabilities into your organization.

Of course, the creation of this new Tech Center doesn't mean our coverage of application security on the main Dark Reading site will decrease. You'll continue to see news and analysis of new application-oriented threats and solutions on our home page and in our opinion section. But when you click on those stories or blogs, you'll be brought here, to the Application Security Tech Center, so that you can see the full range and depth of analysis that we offer on the topic, and gain additional context to support what you're reading.

We think this new Tech Center will help provide more depth and context around your challenges in application security administration. But in the end, this is your site. Please let us know what you think of the Tech Center, our coverage of application security, and what you'd like to see us cover in more depth. We can't guarantee we'll answer every query with a story or in-depth report, but we'll do our best to meet your needs for additional information and analysis.

If it has to do with application security, then you'll find coverage on Dark Reading. And if you don't, let us know -- our goal is to be the most comprehensive source of security news and information on the Web. Tim Wilson is Editor in Chief and co-founder of Dark Reading.com, UBM Tech's online community for information security professionals. He is responsible for managing the site, assigning and editing content, and writing breaking news stories. Wilson has been recognized as one ... View Full Bio
