What technologies and tools does your cyber security services company use to protect software against cyber threats?
As a competent IT security service provider, we implement lots of modern cybersecurity solutions to make the software we develop as safe and resilient as possible. Most importantly, we don’t provide individual security solutions by integrating with third-party cybersecurity services. Rather, we provide our customers with the competency to become compliant with regulations, minimize security risks, and achieve their goals. Some of our cybersecurity best practices include:
Secure coding. To avoid software weaknesses from the get-go, our development teams follow secure coding practices such as those listed in the OWASP Secure Coding Practices Checklist. We also implement a code review process and additional controls during testing to ensure the best result even before the first deployment.
Secure deployment. Once a software solution is deployed, a web application firewall (WAF) is used to monitor incoming and outgoing network traffic to detect intrusion attempts and ensure the system is protected against common cyber threats.
Which types of security testing do you perform?
Yalantis’ cyber security services involve many types of security testing, which we choose individually for each project based on the technology stack and specific threat model. The most common are:
- static application security testing (SAST) to check software components and source code for vulnerabilities
- dynamic application security testing (DAST) to spot any vulnerabilities when an application is running
- dependency scanning to evaluate the security of third-party components like libraries, frameworks, and base Docker images
- instrumental vulnerability scanning to identify known vulnerabilities within operating systems, databases, and other software components
- infrastructure as code (IaC) security scanning to detect threats in configurations before their deployment
- cloud audits to assess the effectiveness of cloud security controls, identify potential vulnerabilities or misconfigurations, and ensure adherence to industry requirements and regulations and best practices
- penetration testing to identify intricate vulnerabilities, uncover flaws in business logic, and evaluate the preparedness of products for real-world attacks
Yalantis’ internal cybersecurity policy: the main principles we follow as a cyber security services company
To provide our clients with trusted cybersecurity services, we have to ensure the due protection of internal company assets. Maintaining the security and confidentiality of company information is one of our core values. For this reason, we have implemented a range of security best practices that we stick to on a daily basis as a software development and cybersecurity company.
Corporate security guide. We’ve prepared a detailed document that includes the rules our employees have to follow to comply with our security policies, maintain the endpoint security of their personal and corporate devices, ensure password security, practice good overall cyber hygiene, and maintain network security.
Security awareness and knowledge-sharing sessions. The entire company is covered by security awareness training and other activities like Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which we observe every October. Our cyber security services team also holds frequent meetings to discuss changes in cybersecurity policies and mechanisms to prevent cyber threats.
Сomprehensive security measures. We protect all of Yalantis’ corporate devices with strong passwords, disk encryption, and regular updates. To detect security incidents, we have an endpoint protection solution installed on every device that monitors endpoints and alerts the security team to every detected security anomaly. To access internal systems, our employees have to use a corporate VPN.
On-demand security consultation and help. Whenever our coworkers have an urgent cybersecurity issue to discuss or important security information to share, they can get an on-demand security consultation via emergency communication channels.
How does the Yalantis cyber security services team maintain application security?
We keep ultimate security in mind when designing the application architecture (for web, mobile, and desktop) and throughout the software development process, deployment of software to the production environment, and ongoing operations.
Let’s cover the critical components of maintaining high application security at cybersecurity companies:
IAA (identification, authentication, and authorization) framework. This framework is a key component of application security when we provide cyber security services. Our solution architects carefully work on it to ensure regulated access to application data. Identification and authentication processes regulate the rules by which users access the application (by email and password, or with a username and biometric authentication such as fingerprint or Face ID). Authorization, in turn, is the process of granting a user access to the application’s content and resources based on the user’s role. For secure authorization, we often use the OAuth protocol.
Encryption. We use encryption as a fundamental technique to safeguard sensitive information and maintain data confidentiality. Encryption provides a robust defense against various threats including unauthorized access, data breaches, and information theft. It is widely used to protect sensitive data during transmission over networks, while stored in databases or cloud environments, and even on individual devices. We also use encryption for communications between the application and the server and implement SSL pinning for increased protection against man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks.
Preventing code injection. Both mobile and web applications can fall victim to code injection attacks (in particular, XSS and HTML attacks), which involve embedding malicious code into the application’s source code. To prevent these attacks, our cyber security services professionals ensure sufficient screening of user input and output on the client and server sides. Plus, they ensure that developers don’t use unsafe and potentially vulnerable functions in source code.
Applying tools to protect against reverse engineering. With the help of reverse engineering, hackers can detect sensitive information stored in the application’s code, such as encryption keys, and compromise the system, causing reputational and financial damage to the business. When developing mobile security applications, for instance, we make sure to integrate with tools from Google and Apple that protect from malicious reverse engineering.
Anti-debugging techniques. By means of debugging, attackers can also disrupt an application’s integrity and security. For this reason, we make it a rule at our cybersecurity services company to religiously implement root detection for Android applications and jailbreak detection for Apple software.
Our cyber security services team’s approach to eliciting security requirements
We’ve developed a unique approach to maintaining ultimate application security by conducting a comprehensive security requirements elicitation process that involves the following aspects:
Industry requirements (HIPAA, SOC2, GDPR, PCI DSS)
Our cyber security services company always ensures that the software development process complies with relevant industry requirements such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Service Organization Control 2 (SOC2), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
HIPAA is a law that provides comprehensive data privacy and security rules for healthcare organizations in the US. It requires healthcare organizations to protect electronic health records (EHR) and implement safeguards to ensure patient privacy.
SOC2 (Service Organization Control 2) is a framework that helps service organizations report on security, integrity, confidentiality, and privacy controls.
The GDPR is a regulation that imposes strict requirements on organizations handling personal information, including requiring explicit consent to data processing, notification of data breaches, and the right to erasure.
PCI DSS is a standard that focuses on measures to protect payment information, including secure network architecture, data encryption, and regular vulnerability assessments.
We take into account your internal business security requirements and your organization’s goals and objectives. These requirements may include specific security measures, access controls, encryption standards, and incident response procedures. Within our cyber security services, we establish a clear set of internal security standards and guidelines to ensure consistency throughout the development lifecycle.
Security best practices
We follow recognized security best practices and frameworks such as ISO 27001, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and CIS Controls. ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard that provides a framework for establishing and continuously improving an organization’s information security management practices.
These best practices also cover various aspects of application security we follow at our cybersecurity services company, including a secure development process, vulnerability management, access controls, secure configuration management, and secure system administration.
Our cybersecurity services company adopts methodologies provided by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). OWASP offers a wealth of knowledge and resources related to mobile and web security, including the OWASP Top Ten, which highlights the most critical security risks in web applications, OWASP SAMM, OWASP ASVS/MASVS, OWASP WSTG/MSTG. We leverage OWASP rules and security recommendations to guide our development and testing processes, ensuring the effective mitigation of common vulnerabilities.
Data privacy best practices
Maintaining data privacy is extremely important for us. We adhere to common data privacy best practices, including data minimization, user consent mechanisms, secure data storage, and anonymization techniques. Our cybersecurity services team establishes transparent practices for data collection, storage, and use and obtains explicit consent from individuals before collecting and processing their personal information, ensuring compliance with privacy requirements.
Secure deployment and post-release support
1. Secure software deployment
Yalantis’ cybersecurity department pays particular attention to secure software deployment practices.
Strengthening the underlying infrastructure. We apply security best practices to improve the infrastructure supporting the application, such as by enhancing cloud security.
