Web application vulnerabilities are one of the biggest challenges that security professionals have to face today. According to Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys, they are the “soft belly of the internet.” He believes that it's difficult to grapple with these problems from a compliance standpoint, and that security tools are the best option.

In this video shot at RSA Conference 2013 in San Francisco, Illena Armstrong, VP of editorial at SC Magazine, sits with Courtot to discuss some of the big problems facing CISOs today, as well as his thoughts on this year's big conference.
