SAST/DAST/IAST

Service Overview

Malleum’s SAST (Static Application Security Testing), DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing), and IAST (Interactive Application Security Testing) assessments provide a comprehensive approach to identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities in your application’s codebase and runtime environment. These assessments help ensure that your applications are robust, secure, and compliant with the latest security standards. By employing a combination of static, dynamic, and interactive testing methods, we deliver deep insights into security weaknesses and provide actionable recommendations for enhancing your software security posture.

Key Benefits

Comprehensive Vulnerability Detection
SAST/DAST/IAST assessments offer a thorough examination of your application from multiple perspectives, ensuring that both static code vulnerabilities and runtime security issues are identified. This comprehensive approach helps catch a wider range of potential security flaws, leading to a more robust defense against various attack vectors.
Enhanced Application Security Posture
By integrating SAST, DAST, and IAST methodologies, these assessments improve your application’s overall security posture. You gain detailed insights into the security weaknesses of your software, enabling you to make informed decisions on how to strengthen your applications against potential cyber threats.
Streamlined Compliance with Security Standards
These assessments help ensure that your applications meet stringent security and compliance standards, reducing the risk of non-compliance penalties and enhancing customer trust. By systematically addressing security vulnerabilities, your applications are better aligned with industry best practices and regulatory requirements.

Our Approach

Malleum’s approach to conducting SAST/DAST/IAST assessments is designed to maximize the identification of vulnerabilities and enhance the security of your applications:

1. Initial Setup and Configuration

We begin by configuring the SAST, DAST, and IAST tools to suit your specific application architecture and technology stack. This includes setting up the environment for static analysis to examine source code without executing it and dynamic analysis to test the application during runtime.

2. SAST Execution and Analysis

Our team performs Static Application Security Testing to analyze the source code for vulnerabilities that could lead to security breaches. This step helps identify issues like input validation errors, insecure dependencies, and other common vulnerabilities that can be detected at the code level.

3. DAST Execution and Runtime Analysis

We conduct Dynamic Application Security Testing to identify runtime vulnerabilities by interacting with the application while it is running. This approach is effective in detecting issues such as session management weaknesses, authentication problems, and other vulnerabilities that manifest during the application’s operation.

4. IAST Integration and Interactive Testing

Interactive Application Security Testing combines elements of SAST and DAST, providing real-time feedback and analysis as the application runs. IAST tools are integrated into the testing environment to monitor the application’s behavior and identify security issues by observing interactions between the application and the test inputs.

5. Vulnerability Assessment and Prioritization

All identified vulnerabilities from SAST, DAST, and IAST are compiled and assessed for their severity and potential impact on the application. This prioritization helps focus remediation efforts on the most critical security flaws.

6. Reporting and Recommendations

A comprehensive report is provided, detailing all identified vulnerabilities, their potential impact, and actionable recommendations for remediation. This report serves as a guide for developers and security teams to address the identified issues.
