FortiDevSec automates application security testing to detect and remediate security vulnerabilities in applications' source code, included open-source and third-party libraries, container images, and Infrastructure-as-Code files early during the development stages of the application lifecycle, without requiring much security expertise from the developers or DevOps.

The comprehensive SaaS-based continuous application testing solution enables developers to detect and remediate security vulnerabilities within the DevOps continuous integration/continuous delivery/deployment (CI/CD) lifecycle.



Application Security Testing with FortiDevSec SaaS Application

Automate application security testing (AST) with a comprehensive SaaS-based solution from Fortinet. FortDevSec automates the testing process to detect and remediate security vulnerabilities.

FortiDevSec is designed to deploy the appropriate application security test based on the attributes and settings of the application. These testing technologies will analyze and detect software vulnerabilities throughout the different stages of the software development life cycle (SDLC) to secure the CI/CD pipeline.

Some of these applications scanners include:

Software Composition Analysis (SCA) also known as Open Source Software (OSS)

  • Identifies all open-source components in the application software
  • Validates dependencies across the integrated software
  • Ensures vulnerable versions are not being used in the application
  • Checks for license policies and organizational mandate
  • Verifies applications live on secure infrastructure components

  • Scans source code and all previous builds for unsecure confidential data

Static Application Security Testing (SAST)

  • “White box security testing”
  • Detects security issues in the application source code
  • Ensures application is compliant with secure coding guidelines
  • Detects and remediates bugs introduced by Developers
  • Complements SCA/OSS and infrastructure vulnerability testing

Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)

  • “Black box security testing”
  • Detects run-time application security issues
  • Ensures application is compliant with secure coding guidelines
  • Detects bugs that only emerge during run-time
  • Complements SAST, SCA/OSS and infrastructure vulnerability testing

  • Detects software vulnerabilities in container images that are built in the application's CI/CD pipeline

Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

  • Scans Infrastructure as Code (IaC) files such as Terraform, Dockerfile, and Kubernetes to detect potential configuration issues that expose your deployments to the risk of attack
