Additionally, since sensitive data is sent from the user to the application across the internet and back again, cloud-based applications are also more prone to security breaches. A public cloud security incident was experienced by about 26% of firms in the past year, an increase of approximately 9% from the year before, and about 79% of businesses had at least one cloud security event in that time frame across the globe according to a survey.

Hence, the need for application security is growing with the rise in number of online shoppers. The risk of cyber security rises with the growing trend of mergers and acquisitions of the company. Since integration and data exchange may expose assets to risks to their confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA), mergers and acquisitions constitute a considerable risk to organizations. Therefore, organizations should consider application security before merging or acquiring an organization.
