If your enterprise has a fully-manned web security team, you can consider yourself lucky, at least for now. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that by 2021, there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity job positions. To realize how many people this means, imagine the current population of Berlin, the second largest city in the European Union.

Announcing the Enterprise Web Security Best Practices Whitepaper

If you’re not one of the lucky ones, you certainly had to cut things short or make the best out of what you have on more than one occasion. Perhaps you had to focus only on the critical issues or only on the most important web applications. No matter what issues you encountered, they all usually come down to two primary problems: you have too few security resources or the tools that you use aren’t fit for the job.

We have good news for you! We at Netsparker have a solution that can help you tackle these problems and we can show you how to use it in the best way possible. With our new whitepaper, Enterprise Web Security Best Practices: How To Build a Successful Security Process, you can find out how successful security professionals worldwide use Netsparker Enterprise to support their processes. The foundation of this guide is formed on the basis of our own experiences and the experiences of our customers. This guide will teach you all you need to know.
