The IT industry is constantly evolving, with more and more organizations ditching the old Sequential Design Process (Waterfall). Agile Software Development (ASD), an iterative methodology based on collaboration between various cross-functional and self-organizing teams, is becoming the go-to tactic for many organizations across the globe. But Agile software development also requires proper security implementation for optimal results.

The IT world is advancing at an astonishing pace. Just a few years ago data was stored physically on databases and software was managed manually. But today more and more organizations are gravitating towards cloud based solutions for their computing needs. While being extremely convenient, cheap and hassle-free, insecure programming can lead to a plethora of vulnerabilities and
With cybercrime escalating worldwide, application security has become a big challenge for organizations and governments. Penetration (Pen) Testing and Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) are capable solutions, but have their fair share of inherited deficiencies. Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST), an upcoming security methodology, is being increasingly compared with Static Application Security Testing (SAST). This
With the internet revolution in full swing, web and mobile applications are extracting more and more private information from us. While this is definitely making life easier and enhancing our productivity, large databases of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) are left exposed due to lack of security awareness and/or vulnerable applications. Identity Theft has become a
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
Despite the astounding rise in cybercrime and hacking incidents worldwide, the modern Application Security Program Leader faces numerous bumps and obstacles on a daily basis within his organization. Application security has come a long way in the last decade, but the inherited limitations of the traditional solutions are not making life easy.
The massive rise in the number of web and mobile applications in recent years has indirectly led to an inferno of cybercrime that aims to exploit application-layer vulnerabilities. Organizations have a wide range of security products at their disposal today, but they are often unable to decide between automated and manual application security testing. This
With the beginning of the New Year comes lots of reflection for the past 365 days. Here at Checkmarx, we had a fantastic and busy year – and it definitely shows on the blog. If you’re looking for some good security info to sink in to or want to catch up on the stories you
Doing security the right way demands an army – of developers, security teams, and the tools that each uses to help create and maintain secure code. With the increasingly important mindset of creating quality, secure code from the start, we’ve seen a greater shift towards the adoption of tools designed to detect flaws as
Just a couple of decades ago, the Internet of Things (IoT) idea was restricted to sci-fi movies and novels. But the internet revolution has changed everything. Millions of new home appliances are going online on a daily basis, enabling hackers to spread malware, create botnets and harvest sensitive information worldwide.
