Application Security Consulting

Internet applications are now the number one choice of attack for hackers. To reduce risk, it’s crucial for organizations to assess their internet-facing applications and build secure programs.

That’s where our Application Security Consulting can help. We know how to find security issues as well as analyze them to minimize false positives and eliminate false negatives, while evaluating the associated risk of any vulnerabilities present.

Who’s Affected

Vulnerable organizations can include any that utilize internet applications and software programs that are critical to their business operations—in particular, companies that develop their own applications, such as:

  • Mobile applications
  • Internet-facing applications
  • SaaS offerings
  • Cloud-hosted applications

How It Benefits You

Securing application vulnerabilities reduces the odds of a successful attack on your company. We can help you strengthen the information security posture and reduce the risk that your critical data is jeopardized by offering guidance on how to sure-up application and cloud-based software vulnerabilities.

The Challenges You Face

Nearly all business and financial operations are technology-driven, making IT applications and systems central to your organization’s success. This means nothing is more important than ensuring the security and availability of those systems as well as protecting your sensitive corporate information and that of your employees and customers.

How We Serve You

Our application security professionals can help you assess your current security program, develop a program to minimize risk and comply with regulatory and compliance standards, and provide security education and training to your employees.

Our application security professionals have significant software development experience and deep understanding of programming practices using a variety of frameworks. Our application security capabilities include:

  • Assisting in locating security vulnerabilities with internet and mobile application penetration testing, including both dynamic (behavioral) and static (code level)
  • Remediating application security vulnerabilities
  • Developing a software development lifecycle (SDLC) program that can help organizations create safer, less vulnerable software applications
  • Providing hands-on training for developers on how to write secure code

Our Services

Application Penetration Testing (Static and Dynamic)

Penetration testing is a valuable tool to help you identify vulnerabilities in your web application, network, ATM, mobile device, or any IOT-related device. A typical penetration test uses a combination of automated tools and manual techniques, and is performed by a highly skilled ethical hacker who attempts to gain unauthorized access to a target application or network via the internet. Application penetration testing can be either dynamic (behavioral), static (code level), or both (hybrid).

Mobile Application Code Review

Mobile applications are pivotal in our day-to-day communications with employees, clients, and potential customers. With the growing dependence on mobile applications, businesses must ensure mobile applications are also secure. Our mobile code review is an assessment to test the reliability and security of your organization’s mobile applications.

Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) Program Development

Our software development lifecycle (SDLC) program assists in finding security bugs early in the development cycle to reduce the risk of introducing new issues and threats to your applications. Most organizations have an SDLC of some type that they use to complete medium-to-large sized development efforts. Incorporating security in the SDLC increases the likelihood that once the effort is complete, the product isn’t only functional, but also isn’t introducing additional bugs and risk into the infrastructure.

Adding security into an SDLC is the way to add a layer of protection for your organization. We provide software development program services to introduce application security testing early your development stream to verify your code is secure—without adding unnecessary overhead to the process. Whether you’d like help with your current SDLC or want assistance developing yours, we have the resources to meet your needs.

Training

Secure coding techniques training is an investment that can provide immediate security impact on your application development initiatives. When your team has the know-how to write secure code, you'll see significantly reduced downstream vulnerability remediation costs. The need for application rework will decrease and production release deadlines will be met more consistently. This is foundational to building security into software. We provide your development staff with the ability to create and maintain secure code in many commonly used languages and frameworks. 

Application Security Analysis

Our understanding of programming practices uses a variety of frameworks and creates a customized plan based on your application and architecture needs. First, we develop a baseline source code assessment of your application, and from there we tailor the service to your build and release cycles so that you have fresh results at the optimal time for efficient remediation. After vulnerability discovery, we prioritize and categorize these risks to reflect the real-world threat they represent, and we create a customized, executable remediation plan. There are varying depths of application security analyses we can provide, all of which deliver actionable results.
