AppSentry Overview

AppSentry is a new generation of security scanner and vulnerability assessment tool. Unlike other security scanners, AppSentry knows the application it is validating – its technology and data model. The security audits and checks are written specifically for the application being tested. Hackers and mischievous employees often exploit security issues at different layers of the technology stack, thus only a complete and comprehensive security validation will uncover all risks in a multi-tiered environment

The advantage of AppSentry is you don't need separate tools for the operating system, web server, database, and application. AppSentry is a single tool that can validate and audit the security of the entire application technology stack from operating system to application layer.

AppSentry Checks and Audits

AppSentry performs over 1,000 security audits and checks against the Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Fusion Middleware, and Oracle E-Business Suite. All technology components – operating system, web server, application server, and database – are analyzed as well as the application. The audits and checks are internal and external; some are performed through penetration testing while others are performed by accessing the file-system, database, and application.
