Web Application Security

The leading vector for cyber-attacks

More than half of all breaches involve web applications (Source: Verizon DBIR) — yet less than 10% of organizations ensure all critical applications are reviewed for security before and during production (Source: SANS).

It happens because it's not easy to assess security. Identify security bugs is a challenge nowadays that requires not a one-size-fits-all approach, but a combined approach to maximize the identification potential and then move to vulnerability remediation. This approach should contemplate a well defined application security program, manual pen testing, manual code review, automated scanning and training for developers.

The Leading Vector for Cyber-Attacks

Securing Web Applications

To secure web applications only manual analysis won't do, because you can't scale. Only automated only won't do, because business logic flaws won't be detected. Only training won't do, because developers need resources to protect applications. Of course every individual activity helps, but you have to combine them all if you want to defend from attackers.

Gauntlet's Methodology

It's simple and has only 2 steps:

  1. Identify and fix immediate vulnerabilities: the first step is to find and fix immediate security vulnerabilities in production application and servers using a combination of automated and manual analysis;
  2. Fix the process and train people: then we assess the development and security processes to identify and fix potential activities that lead to unnecessary vulnerabilities and train developers for future development.
