Citrix AppDNA: Your Secret Weapon for Preventing Attacks

In recent blog posts, we have talked a lot about how to prevent attacks from happening and how to make it more difficult for hackers to infiltrate your environment.

But what about when authorized administrators unknowingly introduce apps that have exploits in them into the environment? It is neither scalable nor foolproof for administrators to manually inspect each application for vulnerabilities. This is where AppDNA can help.

They would have to look at the information for the application or dig into the code.
