Make sure your mobile offering is secure with CBR’s list of security tools.
In an age where every enterprise needs to put out an app just to keep up, security is becoming a hotter issue every day. CBR rounds up solutions to ensure your app is safe and secure.
1. HP Fortify Static Code Analyzer
The solution from the multinational IT giant verifies whether software is trustworthy by scanning the source code to identify the root causes of its security vulnerabilities.
The system provides line-of-code guidance for closing gaps in the app’s security. To ensure that the most serious issues with your code are dealt with, it correlates and prioritises its findings to deliver a risk-ranked list of issues.
Veracode’s on-demand software-as-a-service solution helps developers to test and rate their potential purchases, find flaws in applications developed with partners and evaluate the code that might be acquired in a commercial deal.
The cloud-based platform provides a simple and centralised way to secure applications throughout the whole development and production process. The company’s remediation reports takes businesses’ objectives and risk levels into account to help them develop a plan of action.
3. NowSecure App Testing Suite
NowSecure specialise in attacking systems and homing in on their weaknesses. Last year they found two vulnerabilities affecting Samsung devices and advised Samsung on a patch that addressed them.
In the app space, the NowSecure App Testing suite tests every component of an application with forensic analysis, code analysis, and network analysis and provides automated findings. The developer is then provided with results in a customisable report.
4. Checkmarx CxSuite
This solution identifies, tracks and fixes technical and logical security flaws in the source code, supporting a range of vulnerability categories, operating systems and programming languages.
Auditors can test code at the earliest stages of the Software Development Life Cycle. The suite got recognised as a "Visionary" technology in Gartner’s Static Application Security Testing magic quadrant.
5. Burp Suite
The provocatively titled Burp Suite is an integrated platform for security testing web applications. The programme contains an intercepting Proxy to inspect and modify traffic between the browser and application, allowing you to map and analyse an application’s potential vulnerabilities. The system is highly configurable and suitable for first-time users.
