Application Security

Application Security

Application security refers to a series of procedures, technologies, and practices that have been designed to protect applications against risks throughout their entire life cycle. Cybercriminals who specialize in stealing data, intellectual property, and sensitive information are highly organized and motivated to exploit any vulnerabilities that may exist in corporate systems. Application security can help businesses safeguard all types of applications (including legacy, desktop, online, mobile, and microservices) that are used by internal and external stakeholders, such as customers, partners, and employees. Additionally, application security can be delivered as a complete solution through software as a service (SaaS) offerings provided by application security providers.

Organizations want application security solutions to protect all of their software, starting from internal apps to popular third-party apps on consumers’ phones. These solutions must:

  1. Cover the full development process
  2. Provide post-deployment testing to detect issues
  3. Must be able to test web applications for possible and exploitable vulnerabilities
  4. Analyze code
  5. Assist in the security and development management processes by coordinating efforts and facilitating communication among diverse stakeholders
What is SAST?

Static Application Security Testing is a testing methodology that used Application Security tools to scan applications.

  • Find and fix flaws in source code, binary code, and byte code.
    Review static analysis scan findings in real-time, including suggestions, line-of-code navigation, and collaborative auditing.
  • Completely compatible with the Integrated Developer Environment (IDE).
What is DAST?

Dynamic Application Security Testing simulates controlled assaults on a live online application or service to find exploitable flaws.

  • DAST can be incorporated into Dev, QA, and Production to provide a continuous holistic view of application security by concentrating on what’s vulnerable and covering all components (server, custom code, open source, and services).
  • The dynamic analysis allows a larger approach to manage portfolio risk (thousands of apps) and may scan legacy apps as part of risk management.
  • Functional app testing, unlike SAST, is not language bound, allowing for the discovery of runtime and environment-related problems.
