Through this outside-in technique, we can simulate potential malicious hackers’ interactions with your applications, observing how the latter would respond to attacks from the former, in order to detect vulnerabilities not found through other types of methodologies.
While the DAST technique is applied in many cases on a running application after production, in DevSecOps, it can be moved to the left to detect vulnerabilities earlier in internal pre-production environments, thus saving time and money.
Fluid Attacks’ ethical hackers continuously verify what is automatically obtained in this technique, and complement the evaluations with a manual DAST to eliminate false positives.
Thanks to DAST assessments and reports, and following the necessary remediation procedures, you will be able to comply with various policies and regulations (e.g., OWASP, PCI DSS, NIST, HIPAA, CWE, GDPR, CAPEC, NERC, ISO27K), which you can define as required.
Our hackers’ efforts allow the DAST evaluations to be executed incrementally according to your application’s evolution in your SDLC. In other words, after an overall analysis and in order to avoid delays, we look for vulnerabilities only in sectors which have been modified in the application (always with several hackers attacking the same target several times).
A DAST technique performed both automatically and manually allows us to guarantee low rates of false negatives, contrary to what can be achieved by companies that depend exclusively on tools.
The DAST technique can be complemented by other techniques used in Fluid Attacks, such as SAST, IAST, SCA, SRE, and Manual Pentesting, to constitute a comprehensive application security testing.
