Not Just Another Acronym - IAST: a modern approach to application security testing

Technical Level (3 being the highest score): 2

With the wide spectrum, application security testing tools available (SAST, SCA, DAST, RASP etc.) you may wonder whether IAST or Interactive Application Security Testing makes sense for your Organisation.

IAST is an emerging technology that transforms the way organizations secure their web apps at the speed of DevOps. It automatically and continuously scans apps during QA testing to detect security vulnerabilities earlier in the SDLC ( Software Development Life Cycle) to produce highly accurate and actionable results that can be interpreted directly by the developers responsible for fixing the code. All this, without the need for application or source code scans.

If one of your goals is to get the best bang for your security bucks, IAST enables organizations to focus their DAST or pentest budget on more difficult corner-case vulnerabilities that require high intensive security expertise.

Join this session as the speaker demystifies IAST, a next-generation AppSec tool that provides the most value with the least overhead and friction. Learn about the unique benefits and use cases of this non-disruptive tool and which types of organizations stand to gain the most from it.
