Invicti is proud to announce that its DAST-first AppSec products are now also available for purchase through the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace as both a private listing and a public offer. The engagement with AWS makes it easier for existing AWS customers to bring best-in-class web vulnerability scanning to their cloud-based application environments – with the added potential for significant savings on their cloud spending.
The shortest route to continuous DAST for AWS users
Dynamic application security testing (DAST) is the easiest and most versatile approach to testing web application security. Because they are technology-agnostic and can test any web application that runs in a modern browser regardless of the underlying technology stack, DAST scanners are quick to set up and can start reporting security issues within hours. By bringing its DAST solutions into the AWS Marketplace, Invicti is making the purchasing process equally fast and easy for AWS customers.
Any AWS customer can now purchase Invicti using their existing AWS cloud agreement. This not only greatly simplifies the procurement process but can also count toward their contracted annual AWS spending. The option to purchase through the AWS Marketplace gives AWS customers the added convenience of consolidated billing as well as access to flexible funding sources to support their cloud migration, deployment, and security efforts.
“Now, AWS customers can protect their web applications with Invicti’s DAST solution in a streamlined purchasing process,” said Alvaro Warden, Director of Channels, Invicti. “Having the option for customers to add Invicti to their AWS bill directly through AWS Marketplace simplifies procurement, expedites return on investment, and extends the reach of our accurate, automated, continuous scanning solution to AWS customers worldwide.”
Enterprise-grade security testing integrated into the SDLC
Invicti is on a mission to provide zero-noise application security for organizations worldwide. Even as global cybersecurity awareness increases and cyberattacks are in the news every week, many organizations still rely on protection rather than prevention, downplaying the importance of application security testing – or struggling to test at the speed of development. With Invicti solutions now available for easy purchase via AWS Marketplace, we can now reach more companies with our security offering and help them finally take control of their web application security.
The value of taking a DAST-first approach to integrated AppSec lies in the combination of secure development and secure production. Accurate vulnerability scanning across entire application environments makes it possible to schedule what is, in effect, automatic penetration testing as often as needed (and at no extra cost) to continuously identify and mitigate any exploitable issues in production. In the case of Invicti, the same platform can also be used at multiple points across the software development lifecycle (SDLC), using out-of-the-box integrations with popular CI/CD platforms and issue trackers to deliver vulnerability reports into existing development workflows.
The key to finally moving the needle on web application security is to get only actionable issues to exactly the right people, complete with everything needed for a fast and effective fix. DAST examines applications from the outside in to find issues that could potentially be exploited by malicious actors, providing the shortest path to tangible security improvements. By using proprietary automated verification techniques, Invicti scanners can safely exploit the majority of direct-impact vulnerabilities and deliver proof that these are real issues and not false positives. This allows teams to finally reduce their security backlog and focus on delivering software innovation.
Streamlined cloud security spending
Finally, having the option of getting Invicti products from the AWS Marketplace can have additional benefits for organizations looking to streamline their overall cloud spending, especially around cloud security. Because purchases can count toward the contracted annual AWS spend, eligible AWS customers may be able to take advantage of Amazon’s Enterprise Discount Program (EDP). This allows them to save on industry-leading security technologies with accelerated procurement and consolidated billing via AWS.
