Modern web applications are rising to the challenge of satisfying user expectations. New versions can be deployed at a moment’s notice, bug fixes can be pushed several times a day, and user behavior can help guide the thought processes behind the next big feature. While cloud hosting can guarantee uptime and automatically scale as demand increases, this shift in application development and delivery has also introduced a whole new category of risk.
Join Dave Howe, Lead Application Security Specialist, as he lays out the complexity of securing modern web applications and key considerations for organizations wanting to address web application risk exposure. Dave will cover:
1. The evolution of traditional web applications into the modern ones we build and use today
2. The hidden vulnerabilities that come with today’s web apps, and why legacy application scanning tools overlook them
3. How InsightAppSec, Rapid7’s cloud-powered dynamic application security testing (DAST) tool, can address the issues and risk associated with today’s modern web apps.
