Under Attack?

Application Security – DAST & SAST

Identify vulnerabilities in your applications and mitigate risks.

Ensure that your software is secure and safeguarded against exploitable vulnerabilities. Improve your DevSecOps processes. Running a scan is simple, gaining valuable insights is a challenge.

Securing applications from risk has become imperative to protect businesses and customers. Ensuring that each risk is tracked, assigned and eliminated is key to a strong application security posture.

Our team of experts have invaluable knowledge, backed by extensive experience to help you in that journey.

SAST Detecting poor coding practices, security vulnerabilities and insecure libraries in real time is challenging.

Static Application Security Testing (SAST) is an integral part of the Continuous Integration/ Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) Pipeline. It identifies critical vulnerabilities in an application before it is deployed to the public.

DAST Examining an application in its running state from an attacker’s perspective.

Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) interacts with the application, probing for security vulnerabilities in its deployed state. DAST simulates real-world attacking techniques, providing a comprehensive insight into an application’s security posture.

>40% of security breaches target software web applications

Successful delivery of business objectives is key to any organisation’s success.

Kontex design a security plan that is tailored made for you to enable uninterrupted service within your organisation and to customer alike.

We do this through aligning your business’ short and long term goals with industry leading certifications and regulatory requirements. Through this model we ensure that all stakeholders are protected for threats and vulnerabilities through a mixture of industry security standards, technologies and Kontex’s highly responsive monitoring service.

SAST SAST is a white-box testing methodology, focusing on conducting source code reviews, checking for coding and application design flaws. It removes the manual overhead of pinpointing the exact location of a vulnerability.
DAST DAST employs a back-box testing methodology, assuming no knowledge of the inner workings of the software. It detects a wide range of vulnerabilities, including the OWASP Top Ten, testing an application’s internal state and external environment.

Developing safe and secure software is paramount. Foster continuous collaboration during and after the SDLC. Avoid unexpected issues. Reduce costs.
