Application Threat Testing

What is application security testing (AST)?

Application threat testing is the process of identifying, valuation, exploiting and strategizing on future vulnerabilities in application code, computer network and server applications, web based applications, cloud applications, API's (Application Protocol Integrations), mobile applications (Android and IOS application Security) and IOT (Internet of Things) applications including wearables, manufacturing systems and robotics.

Application threat detection has several techniques, the cyber security industry utilizes to target threats:

Static Application Security Testing (SAST)

Static Application Security Testing (SAST) is a white box testing technique security analyst applies to a static code base. SAST deploys tools that analysis source code, pre compiled code including errors in mathematical formulas, syntax and invalid data inputs.

Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)

Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) is a black box technique that utilizes tools to simulate small to large scale code inspections and evaluate code at runtime scanning for vulnerabilities in memory leaks, query errors, authentication and cookie errors, third party and code injections.

Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST)

Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) is the present technique that combines SAST and DAST. These dynamic tools can do reach a larger array of vulnerabilities including API's, source code, large volume data records, and third party applications at runtime.

Mobile Application Security Testing (MAST)

Mobile Application Security Testing (MAST) is a dynamic analysis of vulnerabilities in mobile applications on Android and IOS. The tools leverage IAST by evaluating data breaches, jail break mobile devices and wifi enabled malicious networks.

Runtime Application Security Testing (RAST)

Runtime Application Security Testing (RAST) is the evolution of SAST, DAST, IAST and MAST which leverages a variety of automated and dynamic tools to detect systems vulnerabilities.

RedSeer Runtime Application Security Testing (RAST)
