Our world today relies heavily on software applications. Be it for work, businesses, grocery shopping, traveling and even for Government relations and public affairs. With these heavy dependencies, IT company and service providers are obligated to release an application or service that is powerful in the security department. Subsequently, the security team had applied various type of application security(for instance; SAST, DAST and IAST) into their software development practice. Nonetheless, new threats are ever growing as well as the method to address them. Three years ago, in 2019, Gartner introduced a new category of application security known as Application Security Orchestration and Correlation or in short ASOC in their technology trend for Application Security. What is Application Security Orchestration and Correlation (ASOC)?
ASOC and its definition
Application Security Orchestration and Correlation (ASOC) is a type of application security solution or tool that combines vulnerability testing and remediation through automation where it involved the integration of various testing results from multiple application security tools such as SAST, DAST and IAST and reinforce them into one database.
Many times, we are reminded about the expansion of attack pathways and the importance of cyber security. Thus, over the years, every security team is introduced with various methods and approaches, namely application security testing, shifting left security and DevSecOps to ensure delivery of high quality end product with lesser vulnerabilities. While the hype for ASOC is at its peak and had more to improve as according to the Gartner Hype Cycle for Application Security Testing from 2019 till 2022, the tool has high potential in allowing the Security team to have more data and carry out better remediation action to the detected vulnerabilities through one single source of truth. Not only ASOC will improve user experience, it will as well increase the quality of their software application, hence enhances customer experience.
