• Less than a third ( 32 %) of the application security vulnerability alerts organizations receive each day require action , compared to 42 % last year
• On average , application security teams waste 28 % of their time on vulnerability management tasks that could be automated

The convergence of observability and security is critical to providing development , operations and security teams with the context needed to understand how their applications are connected , where the vulnerabilities lie and which need to be prioritized . This accelerates risk management and incident response ,” continued Greifeneder .
