Build & Test
In the Build & Test phase of the software development lifecycle, we can match you with automated AppSec tools that cover the following functions:
IDE Security Plugins
During the Build & Test phase, our partners’ IDE Security Plugins continue to monitor and identify potential vulnerabilities during coding. In addition to reducing analysis burden downstream, this improves secure coding skills, and elevates code hygiene overall.
SCA also continues during the Build & Test phase—this automated process reduces security, compliance, and code quality risks.
Static Analysis Security Testing (SAST)
Also known as “white box testing” SAST is an automated testing methodology that analyzes an application from the inside out by traversing the entire code graph. This helps to find security vulnerabilities in the application source code early in the software development life cycle.
Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)
Also known as “black box testing” DAST is an automated security solution that analyzes the application from the outside in while it’s running in production. It represents a hacker approach to identify issues with requests, reponses, interfaces, scripts, injections, and authentication.
Container Security Testing
This is the automated process of implementing security testing for containerized environments. It assures that all in your container is running as intended and provides visibility into security posture in your pipeline—reducing the attack surface before containers are deployed.
Infrastructure as Code Security Testing (IaC)
IaC Security ensures best practises are built into the declarative pipeline. This automated process finds and fixes Terraform and Kubernetes IaC issues while in development. This enables developer and application teams to detect configuration issues that could open deployments to attack and malicious behavior.
Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST)
IAST is an automated security testing hybrid that combines static and dynamic approaches. It performs testing on applications from the inside out, and outside in—flagging security vulnerabilities in real-time while the application runs. The analysis typically provides coverage across all modules that have been included in an executable package.
Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP)
RASP uses security automation to both detect and block attacks on applications in real-time. It is designed to provide personalized protection to applications and visibility into the application's behavior.
Penetration Testing & Red Teaming
Red Teaming is the practice of launching authorized, simulated attacks against software for the purpose of exposing potential security weaknesses and vulnerabilities. It is conducted manually by experts or expert teams, commonly referred to as Red Teams, with the aid of specialized tools. These simulations are as close to a real security incident as possible, and accurately tests incident response. Penetration testers, however, are geared towards identifying and solving existing vulnerabilities. Manual testing is an essential part of the security verification process of mission critical systems due to inherent limits of AST tools. It detects vulnerabilities often residing in areas automation can’t reach, such as; an application’s workflow, business logic and security controls.
