Expert Guide to Application Security – Real-time Hybrid Analysis: Find More, Fix Faster

This white paper details how hybrid app security enables organizations to resolve critical security issues faster and cheaper than any other technology

Over the years, two key techniques have emerged as the most effective for finding security vulnerabilities in software: Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) and Static Application Security Testing (SAST). While DAST and SAST each possess unique strengths, the “Holy Grail” of security testing is thought to be “hybrid” – a technique that combines and correlates the results from both testing methods, maximizing the advantages of each. Until recently, however, a critical element has been missing from first generation hybrid solutions: information about the inner workings and behavior of applications undergoing DAST and SAST analysis.

This white paper explores the next generation of hybrid security analysis – what it is, how it works, and the benefits it offers. It also addresses (and dispels) the claims against hybrid, and leaves you with a clear understanding of how the new generation of hybrid will enable organizations to resolve their most critical software security issues faster and more cost-effectively than any other available analysis technology.

A vulnerability glut

The exponential growth of software applications and their ubiquitous accessibility make security a daunting endeavor for even the best funded and staffed IT organizations.
As high-profile security breaches involving Sony, Citigroup, and legions of others demonstrate, exploitable vulnerabilities in software introduce substantial risk. While the sheer number of applications continues
to soar, so does the prevalence of vulnerabilities and the severe repercussions caused by insecure software.

Compounding the problem is the complexity of modern software, which increasingly targets versatile, “alwayson” scenarios including Web 2.0, mobile, and the cloud.
