Automaker Uses Continuous App Testing to Go From Zero to Secure Faster

The Challenge

With a business model centered around data analysis and AI-driven insights, this SaaS asset management business provides financial and consumer information to business professionals. Third-party entities provide much of the data consumed by the organization and require strict security controls to meet contractual obligations.

This global organization relies on a strictly remote workforce to develop, maintain, and use its highly proprietary code, creating a security and compliance blind spot. No corporate network environment is maintained, so the firm had no in-house security staff and relied on its CTO to handle security-related issues.

Our Solution

Converge’s application penetration testing team successfully demonstrated the skills and techniques that embody their passion for rooting out vulnerabilities that others miss. 

The client engaged our Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) to deliver the continuous testing and retesting cycles the client wanted. Converge’s PTaaS includes 24×7 access to our custom Advanced Testing Services (ATS) Portal. The client’s team can see vulnerabilities and remediation recommendations in near real time as our red team progresses through their various applications. The ATS Portal moves vulnerabilities and remediation recommendations from penetration tester to developer in near real time, identifying issues fast so fixes can be faster.

The Result

By utilizing consistent, comprehensive testing and the ATS Portal’s up-to-date reporting, security now keeps pace with the client’s continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline. They can quickly remediate and retest discovered vulnerabilities at substantial savings over competitive offerings.

Throughout this ongoing PTaaS engagement, the Converge team works closely with the client to understand their security concerns, know their security stack, and collaborate with their internal teams.
