An effective web application security program needs to cover every corner of your complex and fast-changing application environment and deliver reliable intelligence on your current security posture. At the same time, it has to mesh seamlessly with your development workflows so your organization can maintain security without hampering innovation. And it all needs to work today, tomorrow, and every day in the future – for all your applications.
Until recently, doing all this across a variety of web technologies and application architectures has been extremely challenging technically. Organizations have also struggled to deploy workable solutions in a reasonable time and see measurable improvements to their real-life security posture – but as the security industry matures, things are changing at long last.
This white paper presents the four pillars of a best-practice web application security program and outlines Invicti’s tried-and-tested approach to holistic AppSec, including clear and practical steps to:
Keeping a modern web applicationenvironment secure in the face of escalating threats and under relentless pressure to innovate needs a systematic and future-proof approach.
You can’t secure a web asset if you don’t know it exists. When you have thousands of web assets, your organization is bound to lose track of some of them. This leaves them vulnerable to attacks.
Gain complete visibility into all your applications — even those that are lost, forgotten, or hidden.
Scan any type of web application, web service and web API — including first and third-party (open source) code — regardless of the technology, framework or language they’re built with.
Scan the corners of your web assets that other tools miss, with advanced crawling and our combined interactive + dynamic (IAST + DAST) scanning approach.
Your security challenges grow faster than your team. That’s why you need security testing automation built into every step of your SDLC.
Without complete visibility into your apps, vulnerabilities, and remediation efforts, it’s impossible to prove you’re doing everything you can to reduce your company’s risk.
Head-to-head tests by independent researchers show that Invicti consistently identifies more vulnerabilities than other scanning tools. And returns fewer false positives.
Security bottlenecks. Complex infrastructure. Your ever-growing list of vulnerabilities. It’s no surprise that teams like yours are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of work in front of them. Take control with scalable security testing that makes life easier for your security team.
The longer a vulnerability lasts in your SDLC, the more costly it is to fix. Invicti helps you prevent vulnerabilities by showing your developers how to write more secure code in their existing environment. Because the easiest vulnerabilities to manage are the ones that never exist in the first place.
Build your resistance to threats. And save hundreds of hours each month.
