Your path to a mature AppSec program

According to a recent Verizon study, almost 40% of observed security incidents and data breaches were the direct result of a cyberattack targeting web applications – but it’s no secret that apps are often the target of today’s threats.

This e-book, Your Path to a Mature AppSec Program, provides expert guidance to help your organization modernize its AppSec approach – chapters include:

  • An introduction to application security
  • AppSec stages
  • Steps to reach AppSec security
  • & more

  • How to choose the right AppSec vendor/offering

    The adoption of application security (AppSec) tools and capabilities has seen a steady rise in popularity over the last decade, with no signs of slowing down.

    However, each organization’s application environment is unique – requiring an AppSec program that is custom-fit to their unique needs.

    Read this infosheet to for helpful guidance when it comes to evaluating and choosing the right AppSec vendor/offering.

  • SAST vs. DAST: What Are the Differences and Why Are They Both Important?

    If you only use static application security testing (SAST), you won’t detect open source vulnerabilities, configuration errors, or business logic flaws. If you use dynamic application security testing (DAST) with SAST, you’ll uncover more flaws – but still not all.

    The point is: the more application security scan types you employ, the more flaws you uncover. Plus, faster time to remediation.

    This infographic dives deeper into the differences between SAST and DAST, and establishes the benefits of using both scan types in unison.
