Fast pace of product development does little good when product releases are held up due to vulnerability concerns. This is because application security testing is usually performed as an end-of-chain activity, which negates the true benefit of agile development. A comprehensive security model that facilitates inclusion of application validation right from product inception is therefore necessary to deliver secure product releases within project timelines.
we45 helps product teams build an application security tooling framework that enables identification and remediation of vulnerabilities within the development phase and ensure fewer security vulnerabilities in production. At the crux of this framework lies
Security Automation from the get go
Integration of application security testing with Continuous Integration/Deployment platforms like Jenkins helps perform security checks right from when the code is checked in.
Optimal Tool Chain setup
Existing commercial DAST/SAST tools can be brought alongside their open source counterparts and run with appropriate scan policies to ensure early discovery of vulnerabilities without disrupting development workflow.
Better DAST scans
Functional automation scripts created by QA teams can be used to provide additional “context” of the target application to DAST tools for deeper results.
Effective Vulnerability Management
we45’s application vulnerability correlation engine - Orchestron, automatically correlates and prioritises security vulnerabilities from across DAST/SAST result sets to help security and DevOps teams better manage vulnerabilities.
Improved Visibility of Security Defects
Orchestron's built in integrations with bug tracking platforms (such as JIRA) helps in feeding unique and correlated vulnerabilities back to the engineering pipeline, thereby practically prioritising a vulnerability into a defect.
