Web and mobile applications produced or used by government organizations are more likely than those in other industries to fail standard security policies like the OWASP Top 10 when initially assessed for risk.
Veracode’s analytics also show that government organizations only remediate 27 percent of application vulnerabilities once detected – last among the seven vertical markets analyzed. Moreover, government applications have the highest prevalence of SQL Injection vulnerabilities – commonly used to steal sensitive data from databases – upon initial assessment. In contrast, financial services and manufacturing ranked best across most categories, with healthcare, retail and hospitality near the bottom.
