The amazing ability to surf from anywhere sometimes distracts us from a very basic fact: the information may flow to us – but it can flow from us, in other, undesirable directions.So whether you are on your way to a vacation in a city that offers public Wi-Fi or you live in a city that
The DevOps era brings together skyrocketing complexity with white-hot speed of delivery to create growing value and responsiveness in software design. Companies such as Amazon deploy code every 11 seconds, while Facebook executes 50,000 builds each day. With so much complexity and speed, the risk of security vulnerabilities slipping through the cracks is magnified intensely.
Writing secure code is now a must for developers. The rising number of attacks on organizations big and small and the fallout for companies who’ve been breached are growing. As such, security is finally moving out of the periphery to become a mainstay for business continuity.
Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is an organization filled with security experts from around the world who provide information about applications and the risks posed, in the most direct, neutral, and practical way. Since 2003, OWASP has been releasing the OWASP Top 10 list every three/four years. The list consists of the top biggest Application Security
Being a part of today’s tech-industry, you probably notice all winds blowing towards the implementation of DevOps and CI\CD methodologies, and rightfully so. Today’s software developers face an ever growing need for speedy development-to-production cycles with uncompromising security and reliability. One way of facing the speed versus quality challenge is the introduction of microservices.
When we discuss vulnerabilities in applications, there are different categories that we come across. Some vulnerabilities are extremely common yet allow for little or no damage should an attacker discover and exploit them, while others are incredibly rare but can have major, lasting impact on the organizations behind the attacked application. Then, there’s the third
Today’s business cycles require faster and more innovative results more than ever before in order to stay competitive. As organizations speed up their time to market, they are realizing the waterfall methodology is no longer working. Now they are creating and adopting rapid application development methodologies. One of those methodologies, agile software development is arguably
Acclaimed by the DevOps world and best known as the leading open source automation server for continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD), Jenkins is a Java-based program designed to monitor a set of executions in a software environment. Jenkins allows developers to rapidly detect and resolve errors in the code base and boosts automated
PHP is an open source scripting language designed for web development. When the language was first released in 1994, PHP stood for Personal Home Page. Today, PHP is referred to as a backronym – PHP, Hypertext Preprocessor. PHP is a dynamic language allowing developers run their code instantly, without having to compile it first.
Metrics matter. Metrics are important because they tell you, stakeholders and budget planners how well you’re meeting your set goals. Metrics ensure that your program has visibility and is the only way to effectively communicate the value of your application security program. If you simply go through the AppSec motions of scanning and fixing,
