At Prolifics Testing, we pride ourselves on our Security Testing expertise.
We understand the vital importance of security considerations and offer a range of security testing services to find gaps and vulnerabilities before any software is released.
To that end, we offer businesses a dual approach, combining SAST and DAST capabilities, enhanced by our code-free, containerised PaaS, Quality Fusion (QF) and Security Testing Accelerator, both free of charge when used as part of our Security Testing service.
What is SAST?
SAST (Static Application Security Testing) is the traditional variety of Security Testing. Simply put, it allows developers to detect security flaws in the application source code early in the development life cycle. It also ensures that coding guidelines and standards are met, without having to actually execute the code under the hood.
What is DAST?
Where DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing) differs from SAST is in its ability to locate security weaknesses in a running application. Unlike SAST, DAST can locate issues with authentication and server configuration, as well as those issues that are detectable only once a user logs in.
How we can help
SAST and DAST both have their own unique strengths, and rather than choose between the two, our consultants are experts at practising both in combination.
One of the core tools we use for our SAST / DAST approach is Micro Focus Fortify.
MF Fortify enables automated end-to-end application security testing, yielding safe software with reduced vulnerabilities. It seamlessly integrates into CI / CD pipelines, and is highly scalable throughout the business. Fortify also focuses on actionable results, picking up on security flaws directly within the IDE and generating real-time analysis.
At Prolifics Testing, our Automated Security Testing service can be performed offshore for further cost and time savings, providing a genuine Test-on-Demand service. We embed our solutions within the application code, yielding a reliable and comprehensive set of results. Using secure, online tools and custom dashboards, we also collaborate with you every step of the way, ensuring complete visibility of the test process from planning through to execution and reporting.
