SAST is one of the matured security testing methods. In the SAST, the source code is examined from the inside out while components are in a static position. It performs scanning in-house code and design to identify flaws that are reflective of weaknesses, and that could invite security vulnerabilities. The scans performed by SAST tools are dependent upon prior identification of rules that specify coding errors to examine and address.

Organizations that develop mobile apps need to be aware of the potential cyber security threats. These threats can lead to the loss of users' private data, which can have serious repercussions for industries like fintech, healthcare, ecommerce, etc. In order to prevent these malicious practices, Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), a security testing tool, has been introduced. It helps to weed out specific vulnerabilities in web applications whenever they run in the production phase.

In public-facing cloud environments with faster than ever deployment and delivery speeds, we need security models that can keep up with the pace. However, security still remains one of the most downplayed affairs in many organizations. While DevOps practices have helped organizations find means to build and react to the market faster, the hurdles of relying on traditional security are still making inroads for more and more threat incidents.

Appknox is the worlds most powerful plug and play security platform which helps Developers, Security Researchers and Enterprises to build a safe and secure mobile ecosystem using a system plus human approach to outsmart smartest hackers.

Our Products:

  • Static Application Security Testing (SAST): With 36 different test cases, Appknox SAST can detect almost every vulnerability that’s lurking around by analyzing your source code. Our tests cover security compliances like OWASP Top 10, PCI-DSS, HIPAA and other commonly used security threat parameters.
  • Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST): Detect advanced vulnerabilities while your application is running. Appknox DAST simulates actual attacks on our test environment to analyze, detect and plug those pesky vulnerabilities that can fall prey to runtime and network attacks like MITM.
  • Application Programming Interface (API) Testing: Quite different than SAST or DAST, Appknox's APIT tests the server-side of your application. Appknox API scan captures API's at requested endpoints and runs 15+ tests on each of these API's to detect vulnerabilities that may compromise the security of the app servers.
  • Manual Application Security Testing (MAST): Nevertheless, the human mind is much sharper than a machine. Hence MAST in our security testing product that utilizes experienced security researchers to test vulnerabilities in your app.
  • Remediation for Mobile Apps: Prioritize remediation with a research-driven security evaluation guided by OWASP security standards. Appknox remediation framework is designed to help development teams understand and remediate vulnerabilities without slowing down on SDLC.

Build and deploy world-class mobile apps for your organizations at scale and leave your mobile app security to us.
