A software bug, system flaw, security gap—these are all terms you may have heard in the world of application security (AppSec). Yes, they all mean slightly different things, but the reality is each one can lead to a vulnerability—which translates into a weakness that can be exploited to compromise the security of an application.

DevOps is one of the latest IT methodologies to be offered ‘as a Service’. With DevOps as a Service (DaaS), all tasks related to selecting, managing and maintaining DevOps tools and infrastructure, policies and processes are handled centrally, much of it automated, by a specialist team and provided – as a service – to all the development teams across the organization.

Bugs and flaws in software are common and unavoidable. In fact, about 84%[1] of software breaches happen at the application layer, which means organizations looking to build secure software must use at least a handful of application security (AppSec) scanning tools to test their code—from code commit to build to deployment.

Sorting out the differences and similarities among the various open source (OS) security tools is no easy task. In fact, many security practitioners today agree, it can be staggeringly complex. Although automated OS security scanning tools make it easier to find and patch existing vulnerabilities in web applications, thereby reducing the burden on security and development teams, they do require a good deal of management and oversight.

Visibility within an application security (AppSec) program is key to accountability. CISOs and executive leaders can’t expect to hold developers and product lines responsible for security when these professionals don’t have the comprehensive insight needed to properly assess risk and security gaps.

If you have ever considered how hackers and other cyber attackers on the internet use different paths to harm systems and software, you already know a bit about what application risk means. While understanding the essence of risk—and what it can do to the business—is critical, it’s also important to visualize how the notion of security risk is impacted and affected by other areas of threat and vulnerability.

In a nutshell, application security (AppSec) testing is the process of ensuring software is built to be as resistant as possible to outside threats. When applications are secured through effective testing methods, weaknesses and vulnerabilities in the source code and third-party components can be easily identified, managed and actioned before the software is deployed.

Considering the threats posed by the digital world, organizations today must think about security and the way it affects their software. With business outcomes and revenue on the line, setting up and running an effective application security (AppSec) program is no longer just nice to have—it’s imperative. Practitioners need to identify vulnerabilities in their applications to prioritize risk and mitigate risk, a goal that can only be achieved through comprehensive AppSec testing.

Software supply chain breaches are headline news right now, and they’ve even been given an honorable or, more accurately, a dishonorable mention in the White House’s recent Executive Order on cybersecurity. But the software supply chain is not new. In fact, it’s been around since the mid-’80s, and so has the risk. The software supply chain contains all the software components needed to create and deliver a fully functional software product.

With software now at the heart of both business and life, the need for application security (AppSec) has never been more critical. If your software is at risk, so too is your business and the people using your software. However, as organizations rush to innovate and deliver on the promise of digital transformation, security and compliance are often left behind.

Digital transformation involves removing the barriers to delivering value to customers. The mechanisms of digital transformation: DevOps, microservices architecture and others, simplify and speed delivery but complicate aspects of security–particularly vulnerability discovery. Yet, as firms release more and more microservices to production, and do so more frequently, the need to understand changes to the attack surface increases.

As digital transformation is driving organizations to become software-centric, many turn to Amazon Web Services for the flexible infrastructure that supports the rapid development and delivery of software, such as microservices. But gaining a comprehensive view of risk across an AWS environment can become challenging. In this webinar, ZeroNorth vice president of Engineering Andrei Bezdedeanu shares details on how the platform’s integration with AWS Security Hub provides a comprehensive view of application and infrastructure security across AWS, from custom code development, to open source libraries, to applications moving towards production.
