Unifying AppSec from Development to Deployment

We reject the old paradigm of periodic and serial scanning, hacking, and patching, which has proven expensive and ineffective. Instead, Continuous Application Security (CAS) relies on security instrumentation in every application. This instrumentation provides security visibility, assessment, and protection in real time and in parallel across the entire application portfolio.

CAS is a unified program covering the entire software lifecycle, including both development and production, designed to create a clear line of sight from the threat to strong defenses, and ultimately to assurance.

Why Application Security Leaves Enterprises Wide Open to Attacks

This paper reviews why today's application security does not work and how they failed to deliver on their promises. Worse, the adoption of these tools has caused tensions within businesses and, in some cases, cultivated a false sense of security. After reviewing some of the pitfalls of legacy application security tools and why they have failed, a new approach for securing applications will be introduced. An approach that provides the speed, visibility and accuracy across the entire application portfolio while delivering all layers off defense that organizations need.

The Unfortunate Reality of Insecure Libraries

The first real study of how developers use insecure libraries.

Did you know that 29.8 million (26%) of library downloads have known vulnerabilities? Learn more about this prelavent issue and how to prevent hacks from software libraries. The study analyzies millions of downloads of libraries from the Central repository and identifies startling patterns of insecure component used by major enterprises. This analysis reveals interesting findings and insights, including:

  • The most downloaded vulnerable libraries were GWT, Xerces, Spring MVC, and Struts 1.x
  • Security libraries are slightly more likely to have a known vulnerability than frameworks
  • Based on typical vulnerability rates, the vast majority of library flaws remain undiscovered
  • Java apps are likely to include at least one vulnerable library

TECHNICAL BRIEF — RELEASED DECEMBER 2016  4-Dimensions-Tech-Brief.png
The Four Critical Dimensions of Application Security "Coverage"

For many vendors, “coverage” is the third rail — but perhaps the most critical part of your application security strategy. It is a deceptively complex concept, but in this Technical Brief, our recommendations can help you build an application security program that allows you to understand and improve coverage, instead of just measuring the size of your pile of vulnerabilities.

5 Facts About Protecting Applications with RASP 
Learn how RASP uses instrumentation to automatically weave protection directly into applications.

RASPExecBriefCover0217.pngThis Executive Brief outlines 5 facts that executives must know about RASP. RASP is an emerging technology that lets organizations accurately easily stop hackers from comprising the #1 data breach vector – custom enterprise applications.

RASP products use instrumentation to automatically and accurately weave protection directly into applications, without requiring any application changes. The result: applications can defend themselves against attacks in real-time. Instrumentation technology has already helped transform other markets, such as Application Performance Monitoring. Leading vendors such as Dynatrace, New Relic and AppDynamics have successfully employed this approach. By leveraging instrumentation, RASP delivers a level of accuracy with the potential to dramatically alter the product and labor costs for securing apps against determined attackers.

A False Sense of Application Security
OWASP-A-False-Sense-of-Security.pngAn Executive Overview of the OWASP Cyber Security Benchmark Study

In 2015, the Cyber Security Division of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) co-funded an application security benchmark project to measure the speed, coverage, and accuracy of application security products. The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Benchmark Project lets organizations freely assess products they have or are planning to use. The results demonstrate conclusively that most organizations are operating with a false sense of security, and need to revisit their application security technology choices.

Time to Reevaluate Application Security Products and Programs

With the OWASP Benchmark, organizations now have a way to systematically evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their current solutions and alternatives. Contrast Enterprise, which the OWASP Benchmark demonstrated is exceptionally accurate, is a natural choice to augment or replace existing SAST and DAST solutions.
