As a longtime innovator of automated mobile appsec testing software and services, NowSecure continues to embrace emerging technology by delivering the world’s first Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) technology purpose-built for mobile. Sometimes called DAST 2.0 or the next generation of DAST by the security industry, this advancement provides security analysts and app developers with greater visibility into app vulnerabilities and privacy issues.
Although we recommend periodic in-depth pen tests for high-risk mobile apps that run business-critical processes or access sensitive information, this practice doesn’t scale well for DevOps teams. Mobile app pen testing requires intense human labor that simply can’t keep pace with the volume, velocity and frequency of DevOps releases. Many organizations can benefit from incorporating automated mobile appsec testing in the mobile DevSecOps toolchain to speed the delivery of secure mobile apps.
What will 2020 hold for mobile application security? NowSecure predicts we’ll see an intensified focus on privacy, mobile DevSecOps gaining traction and ample activity around wearables and Internet of Things (IoT). Here are some of the mobile appsec trends and challenges that our experts anticipate we’ll see in 2020.
IDC estimates that by the end of 2019, organizations worldwide will have spent more than $1 trillion on digital transformation initiatives. But organizations struggle to develop apps fast enough to satisfy business demand and security often falls by the wayside. Learn how mobile DevSecOps can support digital transformation by enabling companies to swiftly develop apps without compromising security.
NowSecure enables organizations to leverage Microsoft tools such as Azure DevOps, Visual Studio, Visual Studio App Center and GitHub to ship software faster. Over the years, NowSecure has helped organizations automate security and privacy testing of mobile apps in their DevOps continuous delivery toolchains. We’re pleased to announce the availability of a new pre-built connector for Azure DevOps and Azure Pipeline CI/CD tools — the NowSecure Extension for Microsoft Azure DevOps. Devs can find the Azure DevOps extension in the Microsoft Visual Studio Marketplace. Formerly known as Visual Studio Team Services, Microsoft Azure DevOps provides developers with a suite of integrated tools.
