DAST’s ability to provide a simple, developer and AppSec friendly solution that effectively detects vulnerabilities without false positives ensures its continued relevance in the cybersecurity landscape.
Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) is an Application Security Testing methodology in which the application is tested in operating mode, from the outside-in. As DAST tools don’t have access to the application and API’s source code, they detect vulnerabilities by performing actual attacks, similar to a real hacker. In a sense, DAST tools perform automated penetration testing of your web applications.
As the world gets more connected, it is no surprise that threat actors are constantly on the lookout for vulnerabilities to exploit. With vast amounts of software and applications being released every minute, experts believe that a new development approach must be taken – one where security is weaved into the product from day one.
Today we are announcing an additional $20 million in funding to fuel our growth and continue to help organizations (and their software developers) secure their applications and APIs. We’re also changing our company name from NeuraLegion to Bright Security.
