Find and Fix Software Vulnerabilities in Your Mobile Applications
Mobile internet usage has long surpassed desktop usage. It’s quick and easy to develop mobile applications, and the competition is fierce. Because end users have high expectations, your mobile applications need to be revised and updated even more frequently than conventional applications. At the same time, serious risk of breach and regulatory pressures are driving you to turn attention to the security of mobile applications, but you don’t have the time, people or money to move the needle.
Veracode’s mobile application security testing (MAST) solution is built by iOS and Android experts to enable your DevOps team to quickly identify and remediate mobile application security flaws. Our innovative scanning engine combines static and behavioral analysis in one lighting fast scan to provide your team with full visibility into their mobile applications vulnerabilities in real time. As a SaaS-based model, Veracode is easy to use and delivers highly accurate results because our engine learns with every scan. Our team of experts helps lead you to success with a combination of program management, application security consulting, and premium support. Veracode helps you comply with regulations and enables you to expand to other types of application security testing within the same platform.
Most applications were not built with security in mind: More than 63 percent of applications fail the OWASP Top 10 on first scan.
Test mobile apps to the appropriate depth
Not all mobile applications are created equal when it comes to security assurance. A simple marketing application may just need a fast automated scan with each incremental release. On the other hand, for an application that handles personal, financial or health care information, you need to secure the entire mobile ecosystem, including the customer-installed application, the back-end web services it communicates with, and the data that flows between them. Veracode’s mobile application security testing solution addresses the full range of use cases for mobile application security with our static and behavioral analysis scanning engine. Unlike other behavioral scanners, which execute and observe mobile applications to analyze behavior, Veracode follows the data flow in the application without having to execute the application. Veracode’s approach is more thorough because we can detect all behaviors an application is capable of, not just behaviors exhibited during a test run. Combined with Veracode’s patented static analysis DevOps teams get fast, fully automated, actionable code security results to make changes faster and improve the overall throughput of the DevOps process.
Deliver highly accurate scan results
Veracode’s mobile application security testing solution uses an automated process to assess the security of mobile applications and deliver quality results. Our patented technology can test binaries, enabling us to analyze the data flow in compiled applications across proprietary and third-party components, as well as third-party and legacy applications. Since we give you accurate results and prioritize them based on severity, you won’t need to waste resources dealing with hundreds of false positives. So far, we’ve assessed over 2 trillion lines of code in 15 languages and 50 frameworks, and we have improved with every assessment.
Veracode has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing for the last four years.
Get the help of experts to lead your program to success
Everything’s harder when you do it the first time, so Veracode offers services to guide you through the process. Our program managers work with you to onboard your development teams and provide metrics for you to report to management. Our support team can assist you when you have questions on how to best integrate security into your development toolchain. When vulnerability reports and on-demand training don’t provide enough clarity, you can set up one-on-one consultations with our experts who have backgrounds in both security and software development. Companies using this service have increased fix rates by 147 percent.
Comply with company policy and industry regulations
Veracode’s mobile application security testing solution helps you comply with custom policies to satisfy industry regulations. For instance, PCI DSS Requirement 6.5 requires all custom application code to be reviewed to identify coding vulnerabilities. Veracode also supports other risk frameworks and security standards like NIST 800-53 and HIPAA. Each mobile application is graded against the policy as you have defined it, combining results from static and behavioral analysis.
A global bank went from scanning 80 applications per year to 500 in the first year and now 1,000 annually, without adding any headcount.
Access all of your application security solutions in one platform
The cloud-based Veracode Application Security Platform offers multiple assessment technologies that assess mobile and conventional applications, including Veracode Static Analysis, Veracode Software Composition Analysis, Veracode Manual Penetration Testing, Veracode Web Application Security, and Veracode Runtime Protection. The SaaS model reduces your operational overhead because you won’t have to build and maintain in-house hardware. By providing both security expertise and program management, Veracode helps you accelerate the delivery of your pipeline of applications without hiring specialists. Our customers often scale from securing tens of applications without Veracode to hundreds or thousands of applications.
