Pervasive Application Edge Defense: An Application-Based Framework for Trust

By: Christopher RodriguezResearch Manager, Cybersecurity Products, Frank DicksonProgram Vice President, Cybersecurity Products, Jay BretzmannProgram Director, Security Products


This IDC Market Perspective discusses the growing need for an application-centric approach to security. Pervasive application edge defense (PAED) is an application-centric approach to cybersecurity. Instead of traditional piecemeal or siloed application security practices, PAED provides a holistic and unified view of application security considerations, requirements, and best practices. This IDC Market Perspective compares the similarities and differences between web applications and enterprise applications including application characteristics, buying centers and motivations between web applications and enterprise application providers, different risk and threat vectors, and varying roles of security tools including identity and identity life-cycle management. Further, the document provides an overview of key technologies used to deliver PAED including network security, identity and digital trust, cybersecurity AIRO, endpoint security, and DevSecOps and also provides strategic recommendations for buyers and vendors.

"Applications are a key control point for security and are set to become even more important as the machinery that powers the digital transformation," notes Christopher Rodriguez, research manager, Network Security Products and Strategies at IDC. "Pervasive application edge defense is not merely a conglomeration of loosely affiliated point products but a strategy to fully integrate traditionally disparate security technologies into a framework that aligns with the specific goal to imbue the importance of application-centric security into the digitally transformed enterprise."
