There is always news about a breach here, a compromise there. And yet, the Internet, which has made hacking easier, is ubiquitous and cannot be ignored due to being business-critical. Therefore, securing internet, applications and data has become even more essential.
The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Testing Guide has set standards to solve the security issues and Indium has designed its approach towards security testing based on the principles of engineering and science derived from the OWASP guidelines.
iAVA (Indium’s Anti-Vulnerability Assessment Framework) is a culmination of Indium’s decades of experience with Security Testing and helps in performing security test execution, manual test penetration, automated application scanning, code review and analysis, log defects, initiate remediation of defects and complete retesting.
Vulnerabilities need to be fixed immediately for improving security features of an application. However, traditional testing consumes a great deal of time by executing the test scripts on a single device or a single platform or a single browser at a time. The iAVA framework adds efficiency to the assessment process, by helping the team identify and classify risks as * high, * medium and * low to make it easier to fix the errors.
Focusing mainly on the different steps that an attacker might follow in order to perform an attack, the methodology tries to use exactly the same discovery and information gathering techniques that will be used by an attacker.
Being composed of different modules that handle specific scanning tasks, it is chained in an intelligent way in order to avoid performing any meaningless vulnerability checks. Based on services that were discovered and properly identified, it only performs vulnerability detection.
It performs the test in a very dynamic manner to optimize speed and performance.

GAIN THE INDIUM ADVANTAGE!
iAVA framework verifies whether the security mechanisms are trustworthy and the current security architecture adheres to the security policy. It helps find a solution for the vulnerabilities that are exploited repeatedly by attackers to attack weaknesses that organizations have not patched or corrected. Being produced with the guidelines of OWASP, it is a perfect platform to bring out a successful output.
Some of the other best practices Indium adopts around iAVA include:
