Application Security Testing

 

SAST (Static Application Security Testing)

The solution for static source code scanning, analysis, and detection of programming vulnerabilities thereby recommending remedial measures according to different information security standards, by command line location, syntax, and the risks the application can be exploited when it is Go-live to use.  Flexible report according to many different criteria, through which the unified report form - reports by a group of administrators and senior management.

SCA (Software Composition Analysis)

 

The solution is to find and analyze vulnerabilities and information related to open-source code. It is a fact that enterprises increasingly tend to use open-source code as important parts of internal and customer service applications. Open-source code is also on the top list of being exploited to perform the most attacks related to supply chain issues. Therefore, checking factors such as copyright, open library vulnerabilities, and fixing the problem will make businesses feel more secure when bringing their applications to the internet environment for business.

API Threat Prevention

Why an API is used?

APIs are needed to bring applications together in order to perform a designed function built around sharing data and executing pre-defined processes. They work as the middleman, allowing developers to build new programmatic interactions between the various applications people and businesses use on a daily basis.

Why is API security important?

 

Why is API security important? API security is important because businesses use APIs to connect services and transfer data, and so a hacked API can lead to a data breach. API abuse issues have roughly doubled over the past 4 years.

What is API security risk?

The most critical API security risks include Broken object level, user- and function-level authorization, excessive data exposure, lack of resources, security misconfiguration, and insufficient logging and monitoring.

Mobile Application Testing

Mobile application security testing?

Mobile application security testing involves testing a mobile app in ways that a malicious user would try to attack it. Effective security testing begins with an understanding of the application's business purpose and the types of data it handles. The mobile AST market is composed of buyers and sellers of products and services that analyze and identify vulnerabilities in applications used with mobile platforms (iOS, Android, and Windows 10 Mobile) during or post development. Many variations and flavors of techniques exist, but fundamentally mobile AST solutions test applications in three main ways:

(SAST) These solutions statically analyze the source, binary, or bytecode of an application to identify vulnerabilities. (Behavioral testing)Mobile AST solutions use behavioral analysis to observe the behavior of the app during runtime and identify actions that could be exploited by an attacker. (DAST) These solutions also use dynamic analysis to test the app in its runtime state. DAST simulates attacks against an application and analyzes the application's reactions, determining whether it is vulnerable.

Why mobile app security testing is important?

Evolving technologies have also increased the threat of cyber-attacks and ransomware incidents. With the availability of more sophisticated and refined technological tools, it becomes necessary to have mobile app security testing as a process integral to your app development lifecycle

What features should a mobile app security testing tool include?

First, mobile app security testing tools shouldn’t be hard to install. It should have easy security integrations with most mobile developer environments and operating systems. No CTO should have to worry about its architecture because the company wants to use a new mobile app security testing tool. 

Second, real-time bot protection. Mobile app security testing tools can’t just be about finding loopholes during the development process. They need to be active when the app is live too, and thoroughly able to combat threats as they’re happening. Because these threats often come in the form of bots, you need to consider mobile app bot protection. 

Third, low memory and CPU usage. Mobile app security testing tools shouldn’t noticeably slow down the apps they’re protecting. They need to run on as few resources as possible. Users who go through the effort of downloading an app onto their device want it to be fast. 

Fourth, companies of all sizes and all industries should be able to use mobile app security testing tools. It’s not because a company works in an industry where a particular type of security attack is less frequent that they don’t have to be protected against it. The right MAST protects companies regardless of size or industry. 

Finally, mobile app security testing tools should have as little friction as possible for real users. Most users should never know it’s there. The lower its false positives, the better. In case of doubt, a good security tool should always offer a fallback first, such as asking the user to complete a CAPTCHA instead of an immediate hard block. 

Static Application Security Testing
(SAST)

A fully automated security test that checks for basic configuration issues in code and the application.

Dynamic Application Security Testing
(DAST)

A deeper dive into the app’s transport layer checks for loopholes in communication between the application and the server.
