Security Testing: Accurate detection of vulnerabilities

With Fluid Attacks, you can obtain accurate and detailed reports on security vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure, applications and source code.

solution Security Testing: Accurate detection of vulnerabilities

Fluid Attacks' Security Testing solution allows for the accurate detection of security vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure, applications and source code. While other security testing solutions focus on applying a single method, Fluid Attacks offers comprehensive assessments through SAST, DAST and SCA, leveraging the combination of tools and human expertise. Our security testing team consists of certified ethical hackers who work in diverse environments to perform reverse engineering, manual penetration testing and exploitation. Our approach allows us to deliver reports that contain minimal rates of false positives and false negatives.

We conduct security testing continuously, early and throughout the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC). You can find all the results of our assessments along with helpful details on Fluid Attacks' platform. Among this information, our hacking team provides you with recommendations and guidance on their remediation in order to mitigate the risks of cyberattacks from internal and external sources. Every time you have implemented the fixes, you can ask us to perform reattacks to assess their effectiveness.

Benefits of Security Testing

Continuous attack surface testing

Continuous attack surface testing

Our comprehensive Security Testing solution involves delivering attacks continuously to all the points from which unauthorized entry could be gained. This way, you can keep the security of all your digital assets monitored.

Exhaustive vulnerability reports

Exhaustive vulnerability reports

Our certified team of ethical hackers and our automated tools actively search for security vulnerabilities in your systems that may pose risks to your information assets and those of your users. You will receive detailed reports based on which you can decide what you want to fix according to the severity and impact on your business.

Minimal rates of false positives

Minimal rates of false positives

Performing security tests with automated tools and manual techniques, supported by artificial intelligence, allows us to detect vulnerabilities accurately. As a result, we achieve very low false positive and false negative rates in our projects.

Centralized attack surface management

Centralized attack surface management

We manage the security testing from a unique point: Fluid Attacks' platform. This allows our red team to be available and in constant communication with your developers in order to achieve high remediation rates. We also use this platform to provide you with easy-to-understand, up-to-date executive indicators.

Security Testing FAQs

How to perform security testing?

Security testing should be comprehensive and performed continuously throughout the entire SDLC. Depending on the phase, some methods will be more appropriate than others. So, for example, SAST is advised from the code phase onward, SCA from the building phase onward, DAST from the testing phase onward, and so on. The application of these methods should not rely exclusively on automated tools. They should also be performed and reviewed for accuracy manually. After remediating vulnerabilities, security testing should be performed again to verify the effectiveness of the remediation and find new vulnerabilities.

Do automated tools hack?

We argue that no tool hacks. Even though suites have been invented to run particular exploits (i.e., code strings that have been proven to take advantage of a vulnerability) also written by hackers, there always needs to be a human behind these tools who knows which exploit to use in any given context.

How do false positives impact the software development process?

False positives can be a hindrance as their analysis can be time consuming and frustrating. Moreover, developers may start to lose confidence in the reports generated by the security testing tool or method. Also, if it is within an organization's policy to break the build (i.e., to interrupt the delivery of vulnerable code to production), false positives can be a false alarm that triggers this action, resulting in setbacks for development.

How do false negatives impact the software development process?

False negatives can contribute to an organization's false sense of security. Moreover, moving into production with these vulnerabilities means that malicious attackers could exploit them, and remediation costs would be higher than in development phases.

What are the types of security testing?

Security testing includes various forms of identifying and addressing vulnerabilities in IT systems. Among the most common testing types are: web app security testing (specializes in identifying vulnerabilities such as those linked to the OWASP Top 10), mobile app security testing (focuses on finding vulnerabilities such as those associated to the OWASP Mobile Top 10), API testing (evaluates application programming interfaces vulnerable to specific threats), cloud infrastructure security testing (assesses compliance with security best practices and policies in the cloud), and network security testing (looks for weak points in the network infrastructure). More information can be found in our Security Testing Fundamentals post.

Why is security testing important?

Security testing is a key factor in the protection of digital assets, which needs to be proactively safeguarded. It aims to identify vulnerabilities, leading to their mitigation and elimination. It also helps ensure compliance with security standards, which is an indicator of the software’s quality and fosters user trust. Continuous security testing, along with reasonable vulnerability management, helps prevent data breaches, protect sensitive information, and keep unexpected threats to a minimum.
