Application security (AppSec) is an integral part of the development lifecycle, ensuring applications are built with security against various threats, including insider threats and malicious intrusion. Internal threats can occur due to human error and malicious acts like phishing schemes, and external threats can involve malware and injection attacks.
Endpoints are devices connected to your network, such as smartphones, laptops, routers, and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors. Endpoints enable users to access the network from different physical locations and devices.

Read on to learn about some of the common data security threats, as well as a number of tools and practices that can help you protect your data in the event of a breach..
Tiered storage is a way of managing data by assigning it to different types of storage devices/media depending on the current value that the underlying information provides. The efficient management of data recognizes that all information provides an intrinsic value from the time it’s created to the time it becomes obsolete and that this value changes over the information lifecycle.
The typical factor determining the value of information is how frequently you access it, however, policy-based rules can factor a number of other issues to determine information value. For example, old bank transactions, which might have a low value, could suddenly shift in value depending on special circumstances, such as a tax audit. This article discusses some pros, cons, and best practices for tiered storage..
