Whether you’re building a highly automated web application security program that addresses thousands of applications across development teams around the world, or you’re focusing on a few primary applications that drive your business, navigating an ever-expanding application footprint can feel overwhelming. From the complexity of modern applications – and collaborating with the developers who build them – to keeping up with threats and scaling repeatable scanning across the enterprise, the challenges related to web application security testing are multi-dimensional.
AppSpider can find and reduce risk in even your most complex applications.
Covering highly complex modern applicationsApplications are ever-evolving, a collection of highly complex interconnected components of which no two are alike. Pile on web services, APIs, or a highly dynamic client leveraging Single Page Applications (SPAs), and you’ve got yourself an app cocktail most dynamic web application security testing solutions can’t cover thoroughly. Your best bet is a solution that addresses as much of the application as possible (with as little hand-holding as possible), such as a dynamic application security testing scanner. It frees up your expert pen testers to focus on the parts of the application logic that require human decision making.
Driving web application security through DevOpsApplication vulnerabilities are usually defects that need to be fixed in the source code. Unfortunately, in this case, knowing the problem isn’t half the solution—collaborating with developers and driving security earlier in the lifecycle is hard because you have different priorities than developers. The best way to find security defects early, without impacting development time frames, is to embed security testing into the Continuous Integration, issue tracking, and automated testing processes.
Keeping pace with threatsApplication attacks and attackers are evolving as rapidly as the applications themselves, and keeping up with the changes is a tremendous challenge. It’s not enough to just test for the OWASP Top 10. With numerous attack patterns that can be used against you, you need a solution that covers all of your bases by keeping up with both evolving attack patterns and the breadth of attacks.
Automating your way to free timeCall it an educated guess, but we feel pretty confidently you have no interest in babysitting your web app security solution to make sure it stays authenticated and maintains session, or in allocating precious resources to dealing with a high number of false positives and negatives. You need a highly sophisticated solution that addresses both your application complexity and program needs.
Scaling your web application security programMost organizations need to run highly coordinated and scheduled application security tests that are both predictable and conducted at a custom frequency. Some applications require weekly testing, others monthly, some quarterly, and a few annually. When you’re dealing with 50, 100, or 1,000 applications, it’s important to have a well-orchestrated system that you can rely on to give your stakeholders the info they need to assure customers and board members that application security testing is being addressed.
