  • 10 Most Recommended Application Security Testing - 2022

    As we are getting more reliant on various applications to make our life easier or make business processes efficient, the threats have certainly increased to the extent that not considering security during the development of an application may cause irreparable damages. To minimize the chances of an application from being attacked as well as subsequent damages reputational as well as financial, application security testing holds more importance than ever. Application security testing(AST) is the process of making applications more resistant to security threats, by identifying security weaknesses and vulnerabilities in source code. AST started as a manual process. Today, due to the growing modularity of enterprise software, the huge number of open source components, and the large number of known vulnerabilities and threat vectors, AST must be automated. Most organizations use a combination of several application security tools. AST tools can help developers understand security concerns and enforce security best practices at the development stage, it can help testers identify security issues early before software ships to production and also an advanced tools like RASP can identify and block vulnerabilities in source code in production. Security mechanisms can be incorporated right from the initial stages of the development, while they can also take the form of security testing activities after the development phase but before the deployment. To achieve the highest level of security, businesses are slowly moving towards incorporating security practices in the development as well as after the development. Security testing for applications is commonly known by two types static application security testing (SAST) and dynamic application security testing (DAST). However, if we explore various tools and techniques related to application security testing, there is much more to application security testing than SAST and DAST.
