What is application security and how does it work?
Application security, sometimes shortened to AppSec, refers to the security measures used to protect software from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction. The practice of AppSec implements safeguards and controls to protect software from cyberthreats, and to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the application and its data.
Application security testing
Application security testing (AST) is the process of making applications more resilient to security threats by evaluating the application to identify potential vulnerabilities that can be exploited. Although organizations have invested billions of dollars into application security, web applications are still vulnerable to a range of cyberattacks. To keep software safe, it’s important to use application security testing tools.
What is dynamic application security testing (DAST)?
Dynamic application security testing (DAST) is a method of testing the security of an application while it’s running. DAST tools test web applications during their operating states to find security vulnerabilities using simulated attacks, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and insecure server configuration. This application security (AppSec) testing type mimics a malicious hacker to find security issues in the running application, so developers can fix them before the application is deployed to the public.

Three AppSec pitfalls every security leader can avoid
Secure software is critical for business success today. Here are some common application security pitfalls every software team can watch out for.
Complex, siloed, slow: Top AppSec pitfalls and how to avoid them
Secure software is critical for organizations to stay in business today. But security can be easier said than done—due to the complexity, siloed teams, and slow processes.
Incorporating community-powered security into the developer workflow
What if you could have an extra team member who reviews each pull request, with a special eye towards security? A team member who knows all the latest security research, and gives helpful feedback, making security part of your engineering culture?
Solving for a security-first approach: building blocks for scalable product security
Cybersecurity is facing its watershed moment. As developer release cycles are accelerating, organizations are quickly realizing there are simply not enough skilled security engineers available to protect their code.
Secure software development strategy essentials
Trust is the foundation of the relationship between software companies and their customers. The ability to prevent sensitive data from falling into the wrong hands is a cornerstone of this trust.
