Many organizations manage huge portfolios of custom applications on top of SAP. A number of them are mission-critical so it is vital to preserve or enhance the quality, robustness, maintainability and performance of these applications, whether developed in ABAP, Java or other languages, to reduce application maintenance costs and better manage outsourced development and maintenance.
Modern mission-critical applications are multi-platform, multi-language and multi-sourced. CAST AIP gives you the comprehensive visibility and control needed to achieve significantly more business productivity from complex applications with an objective and repeatable way to measure and improve the application software quality.
The aim of this document is to describe CAST AIP’s current support and future roadmap for OWASP Top Ten 2013 (the document applies the very same way to OWASP Top Ten 2007).
CAST Strategy for the on-going support of OWASP Top Ten is to provide users with the means to check that valid protection is in place and whenever possible to provide development teams detect places where vulnerability is left in the code.
