Ignoring severe findings in the legacy coding can cause a considerable risk unacceptable for the executive leaders of the board.
Although any security measure is better than no security measure, those who follow a planned approach have a strategic advantage. It is especially beneficial that the SecurityBridge Code Vulnerability Analyzer can help you implement many industry best practices.
Remember that achieving perfection is impossible, even if you invest time and money in your company’s security. You should benchmark every measure and investment you take against the effort, complexity, and impact on your security posture.
We recommend our customers first address the issues that are simple and easy to achieve and that simultaneously have the largest impact.
Knowing where to start requires some preparation time. Confronted with the initial scan result, we review the findings to prioritize and categorize. While the priority will help you specify an action sequence, categorization is vital to group similar problems since those typically also have an identical solution.
SecurityBridge customers have this simplified since all findings have a severity (Low, Medium, High, Very High) and a vulnerability category (Backdoor, Insufficient, or discriminated authorization check, Access to password hashes, etc.).
