There’s no denying that low-code is a rising trend in application development that’s likely to stay for the long run. Its impressive benefits in terms of agility and development time are convincing the enterprise, so it’s no wonder that the industry is on its course to achieve fivefold growth between 2017 and 2022.
In low-code platforms, building custom cloud applications can be achieved by reusing components through a simple drag-and-drop interface, which means reduced engineering efforts. Then, APIs can be used to hook components together and maximize compatibility.
Low-code still means a lot of code. Even though most of it will not appear on the front stage, development teams must not forget that it should always be protected. Attackers love low-hanging fruit and unprotected source code of enterprise apps is certainly a low-effort, high-gain venture.
