As new vulnerabilities are discovered, businesses are forced to implement emergency fixes in their Web applications, which impose significant operational costs. Even more ignificantly, these businesses must re-test the application to ensure these emergency fixes do not introduce new problems that could be potentially even worse. Because of the exorbitant cost and the disruption to application schedules, businesses are searching for a more cost effective approach to maintain the security of their Web applications. This paper describes how SecureSphere protects applications and reduces costs and organizational disruption by eliminating emergency fix and test cycles. This paper then evaluates the cost savings in financial terms, illustrating how SecureSphere provides immediate Return on Investment (ROI) and saves organizations 530% over five years compared to disruptive fix and test measures.
