Internet Security is critical for online applications
The Internet represents an insecure channel for exchanging information leading to a high risk of intrusion or fraud. In today's world most software applications are networked. Software applications have become the enterprise's new security perimeter. Internet Security consists of many disciplines and attack vectors. Areas of Internet Security include, but are not limited to, Application Security, Network Security, E-mail Security. Firewalls, Malicious software and antivirus.
Because web and internet applications must be available 24/7, and offer data access to customers and employees, they are frequently the weak link in Internet Security. When hackers gain access to web applications, they often have direct access to confidential back-end data on customers and the company. For this reason, testing Internet Security must be a high priority. A variety of online Internet Security products have been touted as effective solutions, but there is no one magic bullet. Testing your applications for Internet Security vulnerabilities should be part of your overall Internet Security strategy. Veracode provides a cost-effective and thorough solution to test your applications as part of an Internet Security strategy.
Veracode delivers Internet Security
Veracode's founders believe Internet Security should be cost-efficient. Veracode delivers an automated Internet Security test solution that makes dynamic and static analysis available as an on-demand service. Dynamic analysis is a “black-box” testing technique that analyzes web applications for flaws and vulnerabilities such as Cross-site Scripting (XSS) that could subject the enterprise to attack. Static analysis is a “white-box” testing technique that examines an application from the inside-out. Static analysis can find vulnerabilities such as Buffer Overflows and Application Backdoors. Both static and dynamic analysis should be part of an overall Internet Security plan.
Because Veracode is offered as a software-as-a-service model, enterprises can test Internet Security as needed and scale testing effortlessly to meet the demands of aggressive software development deadlines. There is no Internet Security software to buy, and no hardware to invest in. No Internet Security experts need be added to the payroll - Veracode employs a team of world-class experts who continually refine testing methodologies. Internet Security testing results are prioritized in a report that identifies the most serious flaws that need remediation as well as ones that can be fixed most easily.
Behavioral Modeling for Accurate Internet Security
Veracode's Internet Security test technology uses dynamic and static testing to build a model based on the behavior of the application, determines vulnerability attack vectors, and then conducts relevant analysis to ensure the highest level of coverage with the most accurate web focused Internet Security results.
Advanced Data Analysis to Find Hidden Internet Security Issues
Veracode's breakthrough web based, online Internet Security scanning analyzes the data and content of information presented by the application in order to find hidden Internet Security issues that are missed by other products. Veracode looks "inside" of directories, debug code, leftover source code, and resource files to find hidden username/passwords, SQL strings, ODBC connectors, and other sensitive information which hackers can exploit to gain unauthorized access to your application.
