Application Security Testing Solutions
Discover Security Vulnerabilities While Functionally Testing Your Applications
It's common knowledge that the cost of fixing defects found during functional testing is much lower than fixing them after an application has been deployed. The same thing can be said about security vulnerabilities, with the additional caveat that vulnerabilities in deployed applications can have disastrous consequences.
PowerTest implements security testing practices in the QA function and integrates vulnerability discovery and remediation with the normal defect workflow. If our client is using HP's Quality Center, our methodology extends that tool to include security testing.
The PowerTest Application Security Testing Solution includes the use of Fortify’s Program Trace Analyzer (PTA) and HP’s QAInspect in the software test environment. Both tools complement each other to expose vulnerabilities in software code during functional testing.
