WhiteHat Security Introduces AppSec Stats Flash: A Modernized Approach to Application Security Reporting
WhiteHat Security, a wholly-owned, independent subsidiary of NTT Ltd. and a world leader in application security, today announced the launch of AppSec Stats Flash, a monthly podcast and statistics report aimed at providing a more accurate view of the current state of application security.
Until now, WhiteHat Security and other leaders in the space have produced annual reports that provide historical context. However, with the rapidly evolving threat landscape, a more frequent analysis is required to empower relevant and actionable takeaways that DevOps and SecOps teams can deploy in real-time.
AppSec Stats Flash will provide consumers and security professionals the context and insight needed to dissect the monthly findings most relevant to their organization. In each episode, hosted by WhiteHat Security’s Setu Kulkarni, VP, Corporate Strategy & Business Development, with analysis from Zach Jones, Senior Director of Detection Research, industry experts will join in on the discussion about how this information affects different markets and what can be done to improve the state of application security. In today’s launch episode, WhiteHat Security is joined by Vishwas Manral, CEO and founder of NanoSec.
Other January highlights include:
- The Window of Exposure for Manufacturing and Healthcare related applications deteriorated significantly, resulting in more applications remaining exploitable for longer durations of time. In contrast, Finance related applications saw a welcome improvement in the Window of Exposure data.
- Common vulnerability types continue to plague applications – the top five vulnerability classes from 2020 highlight that organizations need to double down on prioritizing common critical vulnerabilities to impact the overall security posture of applications.
WhiteHat Security’s research found that 70 percent of manufacturing apps and 60 percent of healthcare apps had at least one critical exploitable vulnerability open throughout the year. Moreover, many of these critical exploitable vulnerabilities are common vulnerability classes. This presents an enormous risk to organizations.
