Control Application Security & Risk
Challenges to Building Secure Software
With businesses constantly changing, software is always needed yesterday. In agile development environments that are designed to meet this demand, security is the last thing on the mind of developers and the business is often content if they can get a functional application.
Incorporating Security into Software Development
CAST Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) has the industry’s best application analysis engine to help organizations build security into their software assets by integrating security vulnerability feedback right at the development stage of SDLC.
CAST AIP analytical capability not available through open source code quality checkers or utilities provided as part of the developer environment. Deep understanding of a systems security is only possible when analysis techniques such as Data Flow Analysis, Architecture Analysis, Transaction Risk and Propagation Risk Analysis are employed to identify vulnerabilities.
Some key highlights of CAST AIP Secure Programming capabilities include:
- Design flaws account for 50% of security problems and cannot be found by code review, or open source code quality tools. CAST AIP’s holistic, system level analysis is required to understand architectural risks that pose security threats and vulnerabilities.
- Security training and guidance to development teams improves application security. CAST supports continuous improvement through automated feedback and training based on 300+ security best practices.
