Getting started with application security


The security of an application is not simple. It is not an option that either gives you security or not. AppSec is more of a sliding scale. Furthermore, security layers will ideally tend to reduce the risk of a vulnerability. It will reduce it to a manageable level of danger. Application security testing is a vital factor during the SDLC process. However, it will have a significant impact on your users. So, getting started with application security is an important factor to secure your applications before you ship them to your customers.

Why Is Appsec Important?

Software bugs are common. 84% of AppSec issues are at the app level. You will ensure that bugs and vulnerabilities in the app are found and fixed as early as possible in the development cycle. Despite this, hackers will exploit major security flaws in production. So it’s important to get a start with application security during the development.


There are a few popular methodologies in AppSec. All of them are playing an important role in application security. These methods reduce the bugs. Eventually, it will make the application more secure. Get the precision you need to find and fix vulnerabilities problems quickly, with fewer false positives.

  • Static Application Security Testing (SAST)
  • Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)
  • Origin Analysis/Software Composition Analysis (SCA)
  • Mobile Application Security Testing (MAST)
