Why is Security Testing Crucial?
The significance of informational and operational technologies continue to increase day by day and their usage becomes more indispensable for business needs. Security risks that can not be identified and mitigated on time cause business, financial and reputational losses to organizations. Due to cyber attacks companies face denial of service problems, lose critical data and face reputational and financial damages. Attackers achieve their objectives by expoliting security vulnerabilities of targeted companies. You can be aware of the security risks of your company services and enhace the security level before attackers take action. A good part of security vulnerabilities can be remediated easily, however when companies are not aware of their security risks, they face significant lossess due to common and solvable defects.
It is possible to minimize loss by indetifying and remediating security risks before attackers exploit them. You can minimize reputational and financial loss by conducting periodic security tests and strengthening vulnerable points.
Standards and frameworks such as CoBIT, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, SWIFT Customer Security Framework and regulations of authorities force periodic penetration testing. You can meet the compliance requirements by conducting regular penetration tests.
Integrate Security Testing into SDLC
Integrating security testing into software development process is an effective security measure for applications. By conducting static and dynamic security tests through the software development lifecycle will reduce the cost of remediating security risks.
Be Aware of Risks
By conducting periodic security tests in production environment, it is possible to detect existing security vulnerabilities, be aware of security risks and remediate those risks. You can determine and improve your security level by periodic security testing.
Dynamic Application Security Testing
Dynamic application security testing (DAST) is detecting security vulnerabilities of an application in its running state. We conduct dynamic application security tests for your applications and report the findings along with the remediation recommendations.
Static Application Security Testing
Static application security testing (SAST) is analyzing source code to find security vulnerabilities that make the software susceptible to attack. We conduct static application security tests for your applications and report the findings along with the remediation recommendations.
Network Security Testing
Network security testing involves testing all kinds of IT and OT services that use IP protocol. We conduct network security tests and provide reports that include technical details of findings and remediation recommendations.
Penetration testing contains dynamic & static application security tests and network security tests. Besides, it involves analysis of system integration points, logical flow control, assessment of resilience to fraudulent events, exploitation and infiltration into systems by bypassing security controls.
