Do Your Development Tools Make Adding Application Security Easy?

We all know that Security (along with Data Access and Integration, Offline Support and User Experience,) is one of the key considerations when building mobile and web enterprise class applications. Businesses often require data is encrypted in mobile applications. However, adding application security can be difficult if the platform you use doesn't include a security framework. Building mobile app security from scratch can be a huge undertaking, and unless you bake it into the design from the start, integrating data security into a mobile app can be nearly impossible.

There are two questions to think about when selecting a mobile and web development and deployment platform.

1) How comprehensive is the security framework that comes with the platform?

2) Does the platform make it easy and does it encourage you to incorporate security in to your app from the "get go" vs allowing you to "forget" about security till you are well down the development path and therefore may be hesistant to have to redo work you have already done?
