Achieving “Shift-left” for Application Security Testing

We are delighted to share a recent achievement in our testing journey:

We’ve successfully integrated OWASP ZAP, a robust security testing tool, with our pAInITe (Selenium based Hybrid framework). This endeavor empowers us to conduct functional tests and security scans concurrently, greatly enhancing our testing efficiency.Security testing is performed post-development, leading to potential vulnerabilities. To counter this and reduce the risk of late-stage threats, early security testing is essential.

We use strategic approaches to improve application security, such as integrating OWASP ZAP, a powerful security testing tool, with our early-stage Selenium-based framework.” This proactive approach ensures effective security. Our preferred method is running OWASP ZAP alongside our scripts to continuously scan the application for vulnerabilities. This concurrent scanning method quickly detects vulnerabilities such as injection attacks, cross-site scripting (XSS), and authentication flaws. It does not stop at detection; it also generates thorough reports that highlight the severity of the issue and recommend effective methods for remediation.

We understand the importance of early security testing. We gain numerous important advantages by incorporating security testing from the start. We reduce the risk of releasing a vulnerable application, guarding against attacks and data leaks. Early detection allows swift issue resolution, ensuring a smoother development process. Starting security testing from the beginning assures complete coverage. We are dedicated to early security testing in order to create a more safe and efficient development process.
