What You Need to Know About Application Security Trends (Security Products & Services)

On 6 June at Infosecurity Europe 2017, High-Tech Bridge released a summary report on application security trends for Q1 – Q2 2017. Statistical data mentioned in the report largely comes from the ImmuniWeb application security testing platform and High-Tech Bridge’s free web security services. The most interesting and important trends are outlined below: 1) Bug Bounty fatigue trend is one that will continue; 2) Mobile backends are the Achilles heel of the corporate defense perimeter; 3) Risks related to mobile applications are highly exaggerated; 4) Web interfaces of IoT devices represent an enormous risk; 5) DevSecOps cannot protect from human negligence; 6) XSS, CSRF and information disclosure are still the most popular vulnerabilities; 7) OWASP Top Ten becomes harder to detect; 8) Web server security hardening is massively ignored; 9) WAFs mitigate simple OWASP Top Ten flaws, but fail to protect from sophisticated flaws; 10) Growth of HTTPS encryption reliability is stagnating.
