RSA Conference 2016: AppSec Track Impressions

Mar 13, 2016 By Amit Ashbel | 2 weeks ago I attended RSA Conference 2016 in San Francisco. I had the chance to attend multiple talks in the AppSec track and listen to what the other vendors, thought-leaders and experts had to say. In a nutshell, all talks and discussions revolved around how to get the developers engaged with the security process. Buy them in, get their participation and educate them. I couldn’t help thinking to myself how all of these things have been on Maty’s and Checkmarx’s agenda for over 10 years.

Static Analysis vs Pen Testing

Static Analysis vs Pen Testing – Which One Is Right For You?

Jul 28, 2015 By Sharon Solomon | Penetration (Pen) Testing has long been the go-to tool for organizations looking to safeguard their applications. But the ever-evolving hacking techniques are exposing this aging solution’s shortcomings. The growing consensus in security circles is that applications need to be bolstered from the core – the source code. This is exactly where Static Analysis enters the picture, helping detect application layer vulnerabilities and coding errors.

SAST vs WAF – 5 Reasons To Opt For SAST

Jun 03, 2015 By Sharon Solomon | With the industrialization of cybercrime and rise in hacking severity, the value of traditional application security techniques is imploding. The Web Application Firewall (WAF), considered as a go-to security solution until not long ago, is currently experiencing a constant erosion in its effectiveness. On the other hand, Static Application Security Testing (SAST) solutions are gaining momentum.

The Ten Commandments of Proactive Application Security

May 29, 2015 By Sarah Vonnegut | When you’re constantly reacting to suspicious alerts and fixing vulnerabilities only after they’ve been exploited, you’re missing the point of application security.   Application security, according to Wikipedia, “encompasses the measures taken throughout the code’s life-cycle to prevent gaps in the security policy of an application or the underlying vulnerabilities… of the application.” The practice of application security, at its core, exists solely to protect the data of an organization’s applications and, more importantly, the organization itself.

5 Deadly Code Injections That Can Obliterate Your Application

May 13, 2015 By Sharon Solomon | Cybercrime has evolved significantly over the years. While initially based mainly on social engineering and phishing, hackers today implement a wide range of techniques to exploit vulnerable applications with porous code. Code injections have arguably become the weapons of choice for hackers and are constantly being used to perform high-profile hackings worldwide.

Ensuring your developers love – or at least don’t hate – security

Aug 14, 2014 By Sarah Vonnegut | This post originally appeared on SCMagazine.com.  By Maty Siman, Checkmarx Founder & CTO
When it comes to an organization’s software security, there’s been a chronic disconnect between the developers who write and build the code and the security teams who audit and enforce the code’s security. This divide historically arose from common misunderstandings: programmers believe that security hinders their productivity, while security folks are frustrated that security is not at their top-of-mind.
