Building secure web applications requires more than testing the code to weed out flaws during development and keeping the servers on which it runs up to date. Public-facing web apps remain the primary source of data breaches. To keep web apps secure, IT ops groups are increasingly adopting Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) tools. Learn how DAST tools can reduce dev costs and security flaws; how to avoid organizational gaps between dev and ops that can make remediation difficult; and other AppSec/vulnerability scanning issues.
