Parasoft Application Security - Parasoft

Application Security

Parasoft enables development teams to build security into your application by facilitating code-hardening practices based on accepted industry standards, such as OWASP Top 10, CWE/SANS Top 25, and PCI DSS. Defend your software from security breaches and cyberattacks by preventing vulnerabilities where they occur--in the source code.

Out-of-the-box Support for Security Standards

Select the built-in standard you want to use and start testing immediately. Parasoft enables you to focus on testing . . . not configuration. Supported standards currently include CERT, PCI DSS, OWASP, and CWE/SANS, and more. Parasoft helps you avoid programming pitfalls by automating the application of proven programming practices that lead to safe, reliable, testable, and maintainable code, while avoiding unsafe constructs.

Flexible Configurations for Your Coding Policies

Parasoft’s continually-expanding knowledge base of rules–one of the industry’s largest and most extensive–can easily be customized. This provides the flexibility to test for security vulnerabilities within the context of legacy code, proprietary frameworks, specific infrastructure requirements, or particular coding policies. You can filter based on file, package, severity, age of code, category, and more. As a result, you can use the right configuration for the right code to reduce false positives and noise to meet your security priorities.

Proactive Defect Prevention—Not Just Detection

Parasoft not only finds security defects, it pinpoints the underlying source code that causes defects–allowing you to eliminate all instances. Parasoft facilitates a continuous process that enables you to proactively enforce secure coding practices. As a result, you can continuously harden your application as the code evolves.

Comprehensive Reporting

Parasoft’s centralized reporting system provides real-time visibility into overall security status and processes. Reports include links to documentation to help development teams understand programming best practices. With references to standards, such as Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE), reports outline and document improvements–helping you determine what additional actions are needed to safeguard security. Customizable dashboards give you the flexibility to create reports that help your organization create safe, secure, and reliable applications.
