OWASP: application security
It is extremely important to understand the concept of application security. Using the correct softwares and adopting procedural methods, will protect the applications from external threats. Countermeasure is the most popular method that prevents or mitigates any effect of such external threats to a standalone system, server or network. For example, setting up an application firewall is one of such methods.
As far as hardwares are concerned, it is the router that acts as the most effective countermeasure technique that prevents the visibility of your system’s IP address on the internet. However, other commonly used methods are: encryption and decryptions, biometric authentication, anti-virus set up or spyware programs, etc..
Application security could be stricter, how? Defining corporate assets and their relations to the applications. A customised security profile for each application can then be prepared after identifying and grading potential threats. Threat modelling is the name of this process.
As a matter of fact, OWASP annually releases a list of the top 10 application security risks. Basically, this list includes the most dangerous vulnerabilities and aims to raise awareness towards these threats. Swascan helps comanies identify and solve these vulnerabilities. Actually, Swascan Vulnerability Assessment spots SQL injection , Path Traversal , Cross Site Scripting and many other vulnerabilities.
In order to assure to your business the best tool available, Swascan developed a special ( Premio Cisco-Marzotto winner ) cybersecurity platform. It is completely in Cloud, Pay per Use and SaaS.
