Application Security Services Improve Your Security Posture With Robust, Intrinsic Application Security Overview App Vulnerabilities AppSec Services Solutions The Optiv Advantage Contact Us Unknown Application Security Vulnerabilities Are Both Expensive and Painful Software vulnerabilities are a major attack vector, but businesses continue to struggle to secure their applications. As apps become more numerous and complex – web apps, mobile apps, client-server apps, etc. – finding and fixing the growing volume of vulnerabilities just gets harder. Security teams often aren't clear about all the apps they’re supposed to be managing. And because software developers aren’t security professionals, security isn’t one of their top priorities. As a result, countless apps aren’t secure and fail to meet compliance requirements. Image As apps get more complex, finding and fixing vulnerabilities gets harder. Without an effective approach to secure application development and use, you run the risk of breaches that can impact your company’s reputation and bottom line. You may also see inefficiencies internally that can create friction between your development and security teams and can continually impact your bottom line. Oh… you could also be looking at steep fines or costly litigation if your apps are non-compliant (this can also cost you long-term through damage to your reputation. No one wants that.) What Is Application Security? Application security (or AppSec) includes all application-level tasks introducing a secure software development life cycle (SDLC) to development teams. The goal is to prevent data or code within the app from being stolen or hijacked and improve security practices and, through that, find, fix and preferably prevent security issues within applications. Application Security By the Numbers Image By 2025, 70% of attacks against containers will be from known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that could have been remediated.* *Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing, April 29, 2020 Image By 2025, organizations will speed up their remediation of coding and vulnerabilities identified by SAST by 30% with code suggestions applied from automated solutions, up from less than 1% today, reducing time spent fixing buys by 50%.* *Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing, April 29, 2020 Image By 2024, the provision of a detailed, regularly updated software bill of materials by software vendors will be non-negotiable requirement for at least half of enterprise software buyers, up from less than 5% in 2019.* The recent Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity from the White House is likely to increase this projection. *Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, The White House, May 12, 2021 Reduce Costs and Risk With Optiv AppSec Services With Optiv, you can improve your existing application security program using both manual and automated testing solutions.

Leave the security headaches to us. We’ve been here before. If it runs code – we test it. Types of Application Security and Testing Methods Application security and its testing methods can be broken down into: Authentication Including application protocols to ensure that only authorized users have access Verifying user identities via application login verification (username and password) and leveraging multi-factor authentication Authorization Giving a user access and allowing them to use the application only after being authenticated Comparing the user’s identification to a list of authorized users so that the system can verify application access user permissions (to match validated user credentials to an approved user list, authentication before authorization) Encryption Encrypting sensitive data that flows between end-users and the cloud in cloud-based applications Logging Determining who got data access and how, post-application breach Application Security Testing and Tools Design review, white-box or code review, black-box security audits, automated tooling, coordinated vulnerability platforms, DAST, SAST, IAST and RASP are all tools and technologies that help ensure security controls are functioning effectively AppSec Solutions Depending upon your specific requirements, Optiv can provide both your security and development teams with application testing, guidance on best practices and remediation assistance.
