Application Security Tooling

 

The 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 the 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 prioritizes 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 prioritizing a vulnerability into a defect.
