Application Security

More and more software is being built at pace. The quicker applications are made, the more vulnerable your software is likely to be – putting your organization at risk of attack. Mitigating threats isn’t easy and requires a culture of security across the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

Immersive Labs measures and improves appsec teams’ security capabilities across the SDLC, with content experiences for everyone in the team.

Application Security from Immersive Labs

Cyber workforce resilience and application security

Immersive Labs is a Cyber Workforce Resilience platform that ensures all areas of an organization can prove its cyber capabilities as they relate to risk and resilience. We believe humans are at the forefront of cybersecurity – your applications can only be as secure as the people who build them. By training your entire workforce in up-to-date best practices, you can ensure every element of the development lifecycle is in safe hands.

Immersive Labs Cyber Workforce Resilience Platform

Reduce application vulnerabilities

The Immersive Labs platform hosts content for a range of roles involved in building applications, from QA testers to engineers. Everyone involved in your applications should have the capability to strengthen its security – and now they can.

Leverage data insights

Cybersecurity capabilities in appsec teams can be mapped to align with emerging threats and your organization’s wider risk strategy. You can measure and track the maturity of your organization’s DevSecOps over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to access and load content?2022-04-11T20:54:29+00:00

Labs are based in the cloud and load up in seconds, meaning you can practice your appsec development skills wherever you like.

Which languages and frameworks does Immersive Labs’ application security content cover?2022-04-11T20:54:52+00:00

As well as the fundamentals, the platform’s appsec content covers secure coding, testing, operations, and engineering, keeping developers up to date with the latest threats and tooling such as Apache, NGINX, and Burp Suite. You can also learn about security vulnerabilities in regards to specific languages and frameworks, with beginner to advanced labs on Python, Ruby, Java, Vue.js, Node.js, C#, C++, Go, Rails… you name it!

How is this approach different to security training for developers?2022-04-11T20:53:48+00:00

Application security specialists often have a creative mindset – the team includes front end developers, designers, and pen testers – that doesn’t suit the boring, point-and-click method of traditional training. It’s more interesting for upskilling to be hands on, realistic, and dynamic, which is one of Immersive Labs’ main visions.

The biggest defence in your appsec arsenal is the people. Although useful, vulnerability scanning tools often struggle to develop a culture of security or address the root cause of vulnerabilities appearing in applications. Immersive Labs aims to introduce a fully fledged knowledge of security best practices at every step of the development lifecycle, where all teams and roles know the relevant tools and techniques to both prevent and mitigate attacks.
