RSA conference is one of the leading security conference worldwide.  It creates tremendous opportunity for vendors, users and practitioners to innovate, educate and discuss around the current security landscape.


Application security testing are tools and services that helps you discover security vulnerabilities in all kinds of applications. Current application security practices/tools available broadly falls into following categories:


  • SAST: Static application security testing tools analyzes the application source code to determine if vulnerabilities exist. IT is also referred to as White-box testing.
  • DAST: DAST tools are also referred to as Black box testing tools. They find potential vulnerabilities inside an application by trying to penetrate them in variety of ways, while the applications are running.
  • IAST: AST is the mix of DAST and RASP, Run-time Application Security Protection, techniques. This approach analyzes application in the testing phase, using the RASP runtime agent and DAST as an attack inducer.
