That software might be storage controller firmware, it may be running your network infrastructure, or it could be your critical enterprise applications. Those bugs might be security vulnerabilities, or the operational defects more commonly known as bugs. Finding those security vulnerabilities is no problem. These days CVEs are ubiquitous and readily available in a variety of security tools. But how do you find out about those operational defects before they cause problems in your technology stack? Well, if you want to implement an integrated platform that proactively creates tasks in your ITSM tool for the critical defects that may impact your enterprise.

On a recent webinar "Why Software Security Is Not Different from Software Quality" hosted by Consortium for Information & Software Quality (CISQ), John Keane shows us why he is the "Software Angel of Death". He provides data showing that Software Security is a subset of Software Quality and that a more holistic view of Software Quality will actually prevent many Software Security issues. The industry's current laser-focus on cybersecurity may be ignoring other information security areas like the Availability leg of the CIA Triad.

All businesses depend on software. All software has bugs. That software might be storage controller firmware, it may be running your network infrastructure, or it could be your critical enterprise applications. Those bugs might be security vulnerabilities, or the operational defects more commonly known as bugs.
ITIC’s latest research shows the Hourly Cost of Downtime now exceeds $300k for 91% of mid-market, and large enterprises. Overall, 44% of mid-sized and large enterprise survey respondents reported that a single hour of downtime can cost their businesses over $1M.
