Dynamic Application Security Testing is a web application security technology designed to identify security holes in applications. It does this by observing how the application responds to specially crafted requests that mimic attacks. DAST tools are also known as web scanners and the OWASP foundation refers to them as web application vulnerability scanners.
The DAST methodology attempts to replicate the labor of a manual Penetration tester probing the application for weaknesses. This can be extremely beneficial, however if security and speed are important for the system, then legacy application security technologies may not be the best fit. Dynamic Application Security Testing has several shortcomings such as poor coverage of security risks, lengthy scans, and lack of actionable advice for developers. As a result, a dynamic code analysis scan is essential to complement the variety of other security measures and tools. Overall, DAST technology is extremely inefficient, so we've come up with a solution.
Entersoft's DAST incorporates a mix of automatic and manual processes. Our customized scripts are developed in-house and optimized to improve efficiencies. This reduces the time burden for our white hat hackers to identify any potentially exploitable, low, and informational vulnerabilities. We adhere to all OWASP Top 10 pen-test guidelines while also designing subjective business test cases assessing the core functionality of each application.
Each test case is manually performed and any vulnerabilities are remedied by performing an offensive hack to provide visual proof of concept for the customer. Entersoft delivers all proof or concept designs through our state-of-the-art delivery system (Enprobe vulnerability management system).
By adhering to scoring mechanisms such as CVSS 3.0, our DAST provides clients with an in-depth analysis of their exposure in the event of an attack.
Entersoft's DAST methodology is a highly effective, ultra-efficient, developer-friendly process designed to identify and resolve vulnerabilities. As it's typically the developers who are left to remedy any loopholes, it's essential that they understand all potential attack vectors. Malicious users will often target these vulnerabilities to gain access to their victim's applications from a UI level.
With Entersoft's DAST service, clients receive complimentary training for their developers; an essential part of our methodology. When it comes to Application Security, ignorance is not bliss, hence it's absolutely critical that any security flaws are remedied immediately.
Our Dynamic Application Security Testing process focuses on leveraging our client's strengths to reduce vulnerabilities. Unlike traditional, automated Pen-testing methods, we believe in the power of human intelligence and intervention to identify, neutralize and prevent Application security attacks. Entersoft's manual DAST methodology allows for fast, seamless application security testing for commercial and open-source applications.
Our white-hat developers are fluent in a variety of programming languages. This allows them to provide your developers with various sample codes for different vulnerabilities in the same back-end language.
Our DAST is a journey rather than a destination. We endeavor to offer our full suite of Dynamic Application Security services until the developers and our clients are 100% satisfied with the result. We also provide assistance for vulnerability remediation, working in tandem with your development teams. Our vulnerability remediation service is an iterative regression testing process designed to resolve any identified vulnerabilities.
