Perimeter Defences are not sufficient for building secure applications

The paradigm of perimeter (network-centric) defence is now unable to keep up with malicious innovations that target the web applications, and that method of protecting assets is approaching a technical dead-end.

It is crucial that cyber-security spending is targeted at preventing the real threats to your organisations, and not misplaced into unbalanced defences purely due to tradition.
