Companies that identify and remediate software vulnerabilities early and often will generate software maintenance savings that reduce overall development costs.
Between project deadlines and user demand for new features, security generally is not the highest priority for development teams. Too often, identifying and remediating vulnerabilities is seen as a task performed during the testing phase at the tail end of the software development lifecycle (SDLC). When it comes to secure coding, this reactive secure development approach is setting software teams up for failure.
To achieve true improvement, security should be integrated over the entire SDLC. To help development teams address emerging security challenges, Praetorian has created research-driven assessment methodologies that incorporate guidance from the OWASP Application Security Verification Standard.
In addition to detailed technical resolutions and strategic recommendations, engaging Praetorian will provide your teams a wealth of knowledge transfer opportunities from our experienced, frontline security engineers and computer scientists using up-to-the-minute methodologies and toolsets. Our team is truly dedicated to helping the world's leading companies deliver secure software faster and more efficiently.
Depending on the level of rigor required, Praetorian will employ a variety of techniques for uncovering unknown vulnerabilities and evaluating your team's SDLC practices including:
The overall goal of an application penetration test is to uncover software vulnerabilities, demonstrate the impact of the weaknesses, and provide recommendations for mitigation. During a penetration test, Praetorian has two primary objectives: the obtainment of unauthorized access and/or the retrieval of sensitive information.Application penetration testing methodology →
Using a combination of manual and dynamic analysis along with custom harnesses for automated fuzzing, Praetorian's Mobile Security Testing covers areas such as storage protection, transport protection, authentication, authorization, session management, data validation, and error and exception handling.Mobile Penetration Testing methodology →
Security code reviews help software development teams find security bugs early in the development cycle. Forrester reported that it can cost up to 30-times more to fix security bugs later in the development process. In addition, providing source code during penetration testing, known as whitebox testing, will maximize efficiencies and results.Learn more about Code Reviews
Praetorian's threat modeling service helps identify over 75 percent of major security design flaws, reduces the scope of security code reviews to only those lines and components that matter, narrows and guides the focus of penetration tests, and minimizes the need for expensive code rewrites when problems are discovered.Learn more about Threat Modeling
Praetorian works with your development team to integrate secure development activities over the entire software development process. The end goal of secure SDLC integration, is to drive and empower developers to perform secure development activities as part of their standard development process.Learn more about Secure SDLC Reviews
Building security in early, and throughout the software development lifecycle, is the most effective approach in achieving assurance. With that in mind, Praetorian will provide guidance for creating policies, guidelines, and standards that provide development teams with the resources and knowledge necessary for building reliable, rugged, and secure software.Learn more about Secure Policy Creation
