Designed for all application types, assessments range from a deep inspection conducted by world-class security engineers, to a combination of manual/automated testing with expert verification of vulnerabilities, to a rapid automated scan with engineering analysis to remove false positives. This approach helps ensure maximum ROI through decreased costs, shortened test cycles and reduced time-to-fix. Additionally, because MAST does not require organizations to have hardware or infrastructure in place to begin application security testing, it can be launched in as little as a day.
"Security relies heavily on consistency, and good metrics are critical to achieving that consistency," said
Regular and iterative assessments ensure that problems are caught before they propagate. Additionally, they enable risk trend analysis, which helps organizations make more informed remediation and security investment decisions. From a cost perspective, MAST ensures a practical approach to help organizations determine the optimal application testing needed, which typically yield a 20% to 30% reduction in cost over individual testing services, according to company data.
"Application assessments should not be a one size fits all solution. Business critical applications require significant time and effort while low risk applications may require a very light touch," said
