Static Application
Security Testing (SAST)

Security Simplified consultants work alongside with your development or security team to decode those bulky and complex results from commercial-grade static code analyzers such as HP Fortify and Checkmarx. We perform technical analysis of each “Kill Chain” to eliminate the false positives and log tickets into your issue tracking system.

We work with your team to support your static code review initiative and ensure each actual vulnerability is tracked and remediated in a timely manner.

Our methodology and test cases are derived from the below standards:

  • Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)
  • OWASP Code Review Guide
  • Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM)
