UncategorizedQuick Web Application Vulnerability Detection Strategies During Testing

Get Accelerated Remediation and Missed Vulnerability Detection During Testing

free k2 use for 60 daysK2 Cyber Security can help you with faster vulnerability remediation in your web application code during your penetration testing cycle.

How does it work? The K2 agent is deployed on the pen testing /QA server and no change in testing methodology or setup is required. K2 works in conjunction with your existing scanning tools or pen testing tools. K2 creates a vulnerability report at the end of the testing cycle.

What are the benefits?

1) Exact location of the Vulnerability: We provide the exact line number in the code and the code file name of the discovered vulnerability resulting in faster debugging and remediation for your developers.

2) Detect Missed Critical Vulnerabilities: Scanning tools miss many important vulnerabilities such as remote code execution (RCE) attack vulnerabilities. Recently, in a test with a leading scanning tool, the scanning tool reported only two vulnerabilities, while K2 found and reported on an additional 196 RCE vulnerabilities. Similarly, the scanning tool only reported two SQL injection vulnerabilities, while K2 discovered an additional 46 SQL injection vulnerabilities!

3) No False Reports and Errors: We help you avoid chasing any false errors reported by the scanning tool. For example, in the previously mentioned test, for XSS vulnerabilities, the scanning tool reported 2 XSS vulnerabilities but K2 did not see any and on further investigation, both the XSS vulnerabilities reported by the scanning tool proved to be false positives.

K2 Cyber Security is providing a 60 day free license to help you get to faster vulnerability remediation in your web application code.  We will provide free production licenses during your testing cycle to assist with finding vulnerabilities in your application code. K2 Platform will help find missed important vulnerabilities, significantly reduce remediation time and enhance your investment in pen testing and scanning efforts

K2 Cyber Security delivers the Next Generation Application Security Platform to secure web applications and container workloads against sophisticated attacks in OWASP Top 10 and provides exploitable vulnerability detection during pre-production. K2’s Platform is deployed on production servers for runtime protection of applications and on pen-testing/pre-production/QA servers for interactive application security testing to identify the location of the vulnerable code. K2’s solution generates almost no false positives, eliminates breaches due to zero-day attacks, detects attacks missed by traditional security tools like Web Application Firewalls and host based EDR, finds missed exploitable vulnerabilities and dramatically reduces security cost. K2 Cyber Security is headquartered in the USA and provides cyber security solutions globally.
