In the process of developing software, it's vitally important to ensure that the application is secure from hackers, malicious users, viruses, and automated vulnerabilities. apHarmony will be happy to bring our team of experienced security developers to your software project. Please feel free to give us a call at 630-855-7522 for a free evaluation and quote.

Oftentimes, security becomes a concern when it's too late – when the software has already been infiltrated, or an external auditor has rules the software below par. While these are certainly strong motivators to improve software security, the design of security principles should ideally happen in-line with the development workflow of the software. Security should be a basis of each component of the platform, making sure that there possible loopholes are minimized from the ground-up.

One of the most notorious methods of software security is the technique called “security by obscurity.” This is so prevalent in novice security techniques that most software created by unseasoned developers will employ this method. The idea is that instead of creating a truly robust platform, developers think it will suffice to “hide” administrative features, or make them difficult to access. Sooner or later, through either automated methods or a new opening in the firewall, the system will be breached.

The process of creating a secure system relies on using publicly-verified and proven techniques, such as hashing functions, two-factor authentication, secure backups, and an effective password policy. Although some techniques may seem like unnecessary overhead during development, as developers are in a rush to produce their “MVP” or get to the next sprint in their Agile framework, the reality is that neglecting security will cost much more in the long run. First, it is easier to implement security algorithms when they are adopted early in development. Second, and most important, often the time when “we will implement better security later” never comes. Due to tight deadlines, trade shows, and release requirements, the task often keeps slipping until it is too late. For a robust architecture, it is important to build with a focus on security from the beginning.
