IBM AppScan was built by application security expert so that your developer can focus in features and function, and meet their timeline. Just imagine how many man days are saved every time you need to deploy a new version, if security regression test can be automated. Have we mentioned that it can also scans your application to check if it violates the PCI-DSS compliance?
Your application developers might be good in delivering business app, and it is also normal to outsource some of the application development to 3rd party, but how good are they in application security and compliance? On the other hand, hackers might not be an expert in business app, but they are very good in Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Heartbleed, Brute Force Attack, Watering Hole, Phishing, SQL Injection, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), Malware, and many others. That’s why hackers can exploit in many cases, because most developers don’t spend much time and effort on those security risks.
IBM Security AppScan is available in several modes:
- Static Application Security Testing (SAST) : This is a “white box” testing, it scans the source codes as if your application codes are being reviewed by a security expert.
- Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) : This is “black box” testing that tests on a running app, this simulates attacks (mutated http requests) and analyzes the vulnerabilities based on the application’s responses.
- Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) : This is a “glass box” testing that tests on a running app with a running agent on the target web server, thus it can discover deeper than DAST.
- Mobile App Analysis : It scans through Android APK and iOS IPA, clean it before the hacker exploit your apps.
