What is Bright Security?

Bright is a Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) platform built for software developers. It finds vulnerabilities in running web applications and APIs.

Shifting DAST left - iterative in the SDLC

Why do you need a dev-first DAST tool?

With software developers testing their own applications, and fixing vulnerabilities before the security team sees it for the first time, you won’t only be saving time and money, but preventing security incidents before they happen.

What makes Bright a dev-first DAST platform?

Setup takes minutes

Setup takes minutes and there’s no need for security expertise – we take care of all that.

Remediation instructions that make sense

If a scan detects an issue, get easy-to-follow remediation guidelines with the information developers need to fix it.

Seamless integration with the developer toolchain

Bright works with existing CI/CD pipelines – trigger scans on every commit, pull request or build with unit testing. It can also automatically add tickets to Jira, GitHub, Azure Boards, GiLab and other systems.

No false positives

Our special technology automatically verifies that any vulnerability it detects is actually exploitable, so that devs don’t waste time chasing ghosts.

Control everything with code

Although Bright has a great GUI, developers love using our CLI that lets them control everything.

Scans take minutes instead of hours or days

Bright’s unique approach allows you to scan only the relevant parts of an app, so that you don’t have to slow down the build process – including for unit testing!

I’m already using an SCA/SAST tool, why do I need Bright DAST?

DAST is sometimes confused with other AppSec tools, such as SCA and SAST. So let’s define them:

Software Composition Analysis (SCA)

Tools look at third-party dependencies (framework, libraries, packages, etc.) in your application, checking them against known vulnerabilities. SCA tools run against your code base. There is no need for a server to run your app. This test is very fast and will report accurately if your application does or does not have a vulnerable dependency. That said, most SCA tools cannot tell you if your application is actually vulnerable or not.

Dynamic Application Testing (DAST)

we explained above, tests against your running application, taking into account how it works and how it is used, giving you much wider security coverage.

Static Application Security Testing (SAST)

Runs against the custom application code that your team wrote, not your dependencies or any other third-party code. It works by parsing your code, similar to a compiler, but with the goal of finding potential vulnerabilities. It then lists every possible vulnerability, and the user needs to dig through the results to figure out which results are something that needs to be fixed and which can be safely ignored. SAST tools often provide false positives, and are best used in the hands of a security expert, combined with manual code review efforts.
