Application Security

Applications power today’s enterprise. They provide an array of benefits such as increased productivity, business intelligence. However, applications can be sources of risks. Applications are typically developed with functionality in mind with security being an afterthought. Thus, vulnerabilities are discovered later on during the development lifecycle and at worst when the application is production.
Peritia LLC‘s application security consultants work with organizations to develop secure applications from the ground up. We start at the architecture and design phase of the software development lifecycle (SDLC)carrying out attack surface evaluation using threat models and misuse case modeling, control identification, and prioritization based on risk to the business or mission are all essential software assurance processes.
Our secure coding services involves defensive coding techniques and processes, covers code analysis and code protection techniques. Our consultants can provide programming language-specific secure coding guidelines, best practices, checklists and in some cases integrated secure code assist tools with the developers IDE to develop secure code.
Already have an application developed? Our consultants can carry out vulnerability assessments on your developed application. The application security assessment looks at your application and reports on weaknesses found. Our consultants employ automated and manual techniques to discover security flaws, map them to Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC) and the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) to standardize the security defect classification, document them and work with the application development team to remediate them.
