G2, considered to be the world’s leading peer-to-peer business solutions review website, has awarded Appknox with two awards. The platform leverages actual end customer feedback to rank the best business software and services. The G2 Crowd Grid Report and Relationship Index for SAST of fall 2020 has recognized the commitments of Appknox towards its products and businesses that work with the company.

Appknox provides the best in class mobile application security platform that helps businesses detect and fix security vulnerabilities using both the Automated Security Testing suite and human based approach. The multi-vector detection and protection services ensure mobile apps remain impenetrable to security threats and data breaches. Some of Appknox’s highest-rated features are:

Static Code Analysis - Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)

Appknox utilizes the DAST test which is an application security solution that attempts to find certain vulnerabilities in web applications while they are running in production. Also known as the Black Box Test, Appknox attempts to penetrate the security layers without a view into the internal source code or application architecture. Needless to add, skilled and motivated attackers use this technique to find potential weaknesses for exploitation.

Static Code Analysis is just a part of the entire process which analyzes software and websites without actually executing programs. This involves testing an application from the inside out by examining its source code or application binaries for issues based on the configuration that points towards a security vulnerability.

Compliance Testing - Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)

As the name suggests, Appknox also conducts compliance testing. The tests ensure the platform meets various requirements from regulatory bodies. Such tests help ensure information is stored securely and remains protected from hackers at all times.

Appknox is well-versed with multiple regulations. We can find out and advise on non-compliance or offer confirmation of the same.

Detection Rate - Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)

Appknox also conducts thorough scanning for vulnerabilities using the DAST methodology. Appknox’s DAST conducts a black-box analysis of the application and examines the targeted system’s responses to a battery of tests designed to highlight vulnerabilities.
