Securing Your Applications

Application Security Testing should be an integral part of your development and subsequent maintenance for web & mobile applications, as well as their associated APIs. Applications are constantly being designed and released to make our lives easier, but the increased flow of sensitive information creates more opportunities for a bad actor to intercept. Whether being developed by a vendor or in-house, you have to be thinking about the data in your application, and how you’re going to keep it secure as it’s stored and shared.

TraceSecurity’s Application Security Testing program is based on standards and procedures created by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Foundation. OWASP offers industry standard guidance, as well as publishing the Top 10 Critical Security Risks for web applications, mobile applications, and APIs.

Web Application Testing

A web application is a software application that runs on a web server. These are similar to desktop software in that they have a user login, graphical user interface (GUI), perform tasks, and store data. Everything from your online banking site to your favorite shopping site is a web application.

Mobile Application Testing

A mobile application is a software application that runs on a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. Users are relying on mobile over desktop apps more than ever before, and it only continues to grow. Mobile platforms like iOS and Android provide some security controls designed to help with app development, but it's really up to the developers to choose their own security options.

API Testing

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are software intermediaries that allow two applications to talk to each other. APIs can be fairly simple, such as the one you use to check the weather on your phone, or extremely complicated, such as your banking app pulling data on your accounts from the bank's systems.
