Applications are astonishing assets which reshape how we interact with data and connect to the world around us. That being said, because applications often handle sensitive information end users are exposed to security risks that range from data theft to operating system disruption. However, with Aescit’s Application Security Testing (“AST”) platform, you can rest assured that your applications are operating knowing that security vulnerabilities within your applications have been mitigated.
Whether it is existing modern or legacy applications that are in use, or new applications in development, Aescit’s Application Security Testing (“AST”) service platform can assess security vulnerabilities at all stages of the Software Development Lifecycle (“SDLC”).
Application Security Testing ("AST") is the process of evaluating the security posture of an application in order to identify security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by cyber-attack originators. If discovered and exploited by malicious activators, these vulnerabilities could cause numerous problems such as, preventing data access, compromising proprietary data, crippling operations being managed by the software in use, or even disrupting customer loyalty software and industrial plant controls.
To help our clients secure applications and realize savings, Aescit provides security services throughout the entire Software Development Lifecycle (“SDLC”).
|Application Types||App. Lifecycle Stages||Aescit Security Services||Related Security Activity|
|Mobile Applications||Concept and Planning|
|Web Applications||Requirement Analysis||Security Alignment||Align application usage with associated security risks.|
|Desktop Applications||Architecture and Design||Threat modeling and architectural analysis||Review app. architecture for security gaps.|
|Industrial and Distributive Control Systems (ICS/DCS)||Development||Static Application Security Testing||Analyze all binary code for security vulnerabilities.|
|Pre-Deployment Testing||Dynamic Application Security Testing||Identify architectural weaknesses while running the application.|
|Internet of Things (IoT)||Operation & Maintenance||Risk Management||Monitor and update applications in use to keep them stable and secure through-out their lifecycle.|
Some vulnerabilities are difficult or even impossible to find while an application is running. SAST takes is a deeper analysis to examine an application's source code, byte code and application binaries for indications of a security vulnerability.
DAST is an application security evaluation process which tests security while the application is in a running state. Using a myriad of proprietary tools, Aescit will often run several virtual machines to emulate the hardware specifications of the device(s) that your software is intended for.
Our isolated test environment enables our Security Operations Center, Network Security Auditors, and Engineers to run RWS in order to place the system under real world scrutiny and operational review. We put applications through their paces with the most advanced threats to ensure maximum security.
Less than 9.0% of third-party software comply with enterprise security standards. To keep our clients safe, mitigate liability and in regulatory compliance, Aescit provides Vendor Application Security Testing (VAST) to mitigate the risk from outsourced software services and third-party applications.
Our world-class engineering team merges their extensive experience, credentials and certifications with the most current threat data, proven proprietary assessment methodologies and a wide range of technologies to find, profile and prioritize application security vulnerabilities.
