No-code development is making it easier to build business apps. Security should still be front and centre.
The increasing popularity of no-code development is facilitating the creation of business-focused applications by non-traditional DevOps teams, whether for web apps, mobile apps, or interactive websites. With this in mind, security should be front and centre for no-code-developed business applications.
If you have experience working on application projects that involve sensitive customer or business data, you are aware that ensuring a platform’s security and safety is of utmost importance when developing apps that are critical to an organisation’s function. This holds true even for no-code platforms.
No-code platforms allow users to create apps without the need for extensive coding knowledge.
However, the ease of use of no-code platforms can lead to security risks, such as the possibility of creating vulnerabilities in the app.
As developing becomes more accessible, organisations and developing teams should ensure that they have proper security measures in place, including using secure hosting platforms, implementing access controls, and regularly testing the app for vulnerabilities.
Users of no-code platforms should also educate themselves on basic security practices and ensure that they are using the platform responsibly.
While no-code platforms have the potential to improve productivity and efficiency, it is important to continue to prioritise security to protect sensitive organisational information.
