Application Security Verification Standard Makes Cloud Security Assessments Simpler Than Ever
Online PR News – 02-August-2021 – Centraleyes today announced that it has added the OWASP ASVS 4.0 framework to its cloud-based, cutting-edge cyber risk management platform. By gathering information from multiple sources and consolidating that data into a single pane of glass, the solution automates much of the repetitive manual tasks often involved in cybersecurity. Offering multiple security standards and frameworks, the Centraleyes platform is designed to evaluate different types of risk and compliance.
With the introduction of OWASP ASVS, customers are able to use the Centraleyes platform to launch security assessments of cloud-based apps in a matter of seconds. Software developers can use the platform to gain real-time insights into the security posture of the applications they are developing. The framework is also designed to serve as a baseline requirement that can be used during the procurement stage for software.
"Securing the enterprise has never been more challenging," says Yair Solow, CEO at Centraleyes. "With so many moving pieces, traditional security assessments are not enough. The addition of in-house developed applications with a heavy reliance on vendors, has created the need for a dedicated application assessment framework, that is capable of defining metrics by which all applications can be rapidly assessed OWASP ASVS is precisely that."
First published back in 2009, ASVS initially gained momentum through community involvement and feedback, with adoption growing increasingly widespread year over year. It features three implementation levels:
Level 1: Basic assurance, able to be completely assessed via penetration testing.
"Awareness and scrutiny around vendor and supply chain risk has been growing for some time, especially in the wake of high-profile attacks like SolarWinds and Kaseya," Solow continues. "Organizations are anxious to ensure the software they procure and develop is sufficiently protected. As always, our aim is to enable them to do exactly that, adjust to a world where solutions are ever-evolving, and the threats are right behind."
