At iQ-Cyber we understand that application security testing has become too generic and not aligned with the business environment.
When assessing software risk, it is critical to recognize and test for security issues across all three layers of an application:
- The custom code developed in-house
- Third-party components, frequently used by software engineers to accelerate development, and
- The network infrastructure in which the application runs
We can help mature your
Application Security process
Defective software can result in lost clients and users, failing business processes, revenue impacts, security breaches and regulation violation. These risks grow proportionality as organizations increase their dependency on software.
To mitigate these risks, organizations need to build and mature an Application Security Program that aligns with the level of acceptable risk. For example:
Are you assessing the correct applications?
Many organizations don't have a full inventory of applications. Understanding which apps pose the greatest security risk can be even more difficult to determine. Our risk ranking and assessment planning approach employs OWASP SAMM & ASVS to quickly clarify which apps deserve your highest attention and how to assess their security.
Are you conducting the right types of assessments?
Automated security testing tools may only find 14% of an application's vulnerabilities. At iQ-Cyber, we employ OWASP ASVS across our testing practices to expose the other 45% of defects hiding in your software. With OWASP SAMM & ASVS we are able to find defects related to security controls that are not discovered through other activities such as: SAST, DAST, IAST or pen testing.
Are assessments run frequently enough?
With new releases, applications can expose new vulnerabilities. We can help develop an assessment schedule that integrates with your development cycle and catch vulnerabilities before they're deployed in production.
