Businesses face an increasingly complex set of threats to their Web applications—from malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) to disgruntled employees and unintentional data leaks. Although there is no single security measure than can prevent all threats, there are some that provide broad-based mitigation to a number of threats. The use of SSL encryption and digital certificate-based authentication is one of them. Changes in the way we deliver services, the increasing use of mobile devices, and the adoption of cloud computing compounded by the ever-evolving means of stealing information and compromising services leave Web applications vulnerable to attack.
In this chapter, we turn our attention to the combined risk of losing data and losing customer trust.
We often think of malware as being designed to sit beneath the radar, collecting data in stealth mode, for the purposes of fraud or corporate espionage. Increasingly however, we’re witnessing attacks on corporations designed to cause substantial economic losses via wholesale destruction. For example, the Shamoon malware that recently hit Saudi Arabia-based Aramco (the world’s largest oil company) and RasGas (a Qatar-based gas company) corrupted files on tens of thousands of workstations, overwriting the Master Boot Records.
These malware attacks, which may well have targeted website vulnerabilities, resulted in destruction on an industrial scale. At Aramco, IT professionals were forced to replace 30,000 PCs and laptops. RasGas meanwhile, had to shut down all email communications, and the company’s website was forced offline.

Service-centric cloud ERP solutions have matured and are increasingly being adopted by midsize and large organizations.
Many vendors offer service-centric cloud ERP, but their suitability varies by organization size, geographic presence and industry.
An emerging competitive differentiator is vendors' delivery of "packaged" integration, which enables customers to loosely couple their cloud ERP products with professional services administration (PSA), CRM and other vertical-specific applications.
Cloud-based service-centric solutions now offer feature-parity with, and the same functional depth as, established on-premises solutions.
