An Adversarial Perspective of Web Applications

What are Some AppSec Security Challenges?

Software vulnerabilities. They’re still a huge target for attackers. Even after leveraging regular testing, code reviews and the best scanning tools, your security team may still be struggling to find and remediate vulnerabilities. And this puts your organization at risk.

 

You probably:

 

  • Have too many applications and may not even know what they all are or if they meet compliance standards
  • Have application developers who aren’t security professionals, which means that security for applications is not their priority

 

Vulnerabilities in applications are among the most significant threats because many issues are the result of an application’s logic and design and aren’t readily identified by automated scanning software programs.

 

Optiv can help with our real-world adversarial tactics and techniques.
