How to hack smarter and find critical vulnerabilities with the new fuzzing engine

There is a common tendency that the typical DAST scanner finds the easiest to locate known security vulnerabilities. If you need to find vulnerabilities that are more difficult to detect – you need the help of security experts. But what if the DAST product could behave more like an automated hacker? The Security Research team at Detectify set themselves up to solve this problem and fundamentally upgrade the way we do fuzzing in our vulnerability scanner, Deep Scan.


5 reasons integrated patch and vulnerability management mitigates risks swiftly and efficiently

ESG research on cyber risk management, which involved 340 cybersecurity professionals, revealed that 40 percent felt tracking patch and vulnerability management over time was their biggest challenge.


Setting Up an Effective Vulnerability Management Policy

Considering the continuous increase in cybersecurity attacks targeting large organizations over the past few years and regulations like PCI DSS, HIPAA, NIST 800-731 – to name a few – it’s no surprise that enterprise investment in vulnerability management is on the rise. Detecting, prioritizing, and remediating security vulnerabilities in today’s rapidly evolving threat landscape is no small feat.


What matters most: VA scans or pen tests

All sources agree that cyber crime is increasing year on year, putting businesses small and large at increasing risk. Attacks jumped by 31% during the height of the 2020 pandemic alone, and is predicted to cost the global economy over $10 trillion by 2025. In order to stay ahead of the hackers, savvy enterprises are stepping up their security scanning regimes by using vulnerability scanning and penetration tests to uncover security flaws.


Analysis of an attack on automotive keyless entry systems

The convenience of keyless entry systems can come at a price: your security. Learn how key fob hacks happen and why proactive security measures are a vital part of stopping them. With increased connectivity capabilities and larger and more complex software in automotive systems, modern vehicles are becoming more susceptible to cyber security attacks.


Dangers of Only Scanning First-Party Code

When it comes to securing your applications, it’s not unusual to only consider the risks from your first-party code. But if you’re solely considering your own code, then your attack surface is likely bigger than you think. Our recent State of Software Security report found that 97 percent of the typical Java application is made up of open source libraries. That means your attack surface is exponentially larger than just the code written in-house.
