Vulnerabilities in web applications are the leading cause of high-profile breaches. The attacks on web applications are increasing in number and becoming more sophisticated often evading detection from pattern matching and signature-based solutions like EDR and WAF. K2’s unique patent pending OCFI technique protects against the OWASP Top 10 and other sophisticated attacks in real time with the least amount of false positives.
Sophisticated attackers are increasingly using memory-based attack techniques like return oriented programming which cannot be detected by network and end point security solutions such as firewalls and EDR. The K2 Platform uses optimized control flow integrity (OCFI) that creates a “DNA” map of the application. The “DNA” map is used to validate that the application executes as designed and detects in real-time deviations caused by memory based and file-less attacks.
Security teams have a short window to find and fix vulnerabilities in applications. Current pen-testing and scanning tools create too many false alerts and provide limited information on the location of vulnerabilities resulting in wasted resources and testing cycles. K2’s Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) module is deployed in tandem with QA/penetration testing/scanning tools and finds exploitable vulnerabilities with exact location of vulnerable code resulting in faster remediation. K2’s IAST increases the number of vulnerabilities that can be addressed on a tight schedule and improves the efficiency of application security and development teams.
