Although there are a variety of application security technologies, there is no silver bullet. You need to gather the strengths of multiple analysis techniques along the entire application lifetime — from development to testing to production — to drive down application risk. Each testing type, from static to dynamic to software composition analysis and manual pen testing, has different strengths and weaknesses and are better in different scenarios, but you won’t be effective without taking advantage of them all.
Join this session to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the different AppSec testing types, how they work together, and how to get started.
