Application Security 2.0

Protecting Sensitive Data by Design

Reinforcing perimeter control is one thing, controlling data flow by design is quite another.

Security tools that analyze source code only check on best practices that prevent intrusion (SQL Injection, XSS). CAST does the same with much fewer false alarms, and is uniquely capable of protecting data against hackers or unhappy developers who manage to get inside the network.

The CAST Application Intelligence Platform visualizes “as is” architecture and automates the inspection of connections to sensitive data structures. It identifies data call pathways that are unsafe and intrinsically vulnerable to attack. CAST for Security can enforce controls that are needed to prevent common attacks and new architectural constructs to keep your most sensitive data secure.

Contextual Software Analysis significantly reduces the number of spurious findings flagged by traditional code checkers and can help find flaws that traditional application security tools can’t catch: malicious code gaining forbidden access to data, lack of input validation and back doors.
