Organizations increasingly depend on information technology to process vital data and for operations. It is estimated that as of today, there are 13 billion devices connected today. By 2020, this number is expected to grow to 25 billion. This enormous growth presents cyber attackers an opportunity to breach security and compromise organizations' data. An organization needs to be proactive in detecting unknown vulnerabilities in business-critical software and devices. Since it is better to detect and prevent anomalies earlier than later, there is a need for software that discovers and remedies unknown vulnerabilities early in the development lifecycle and supply chain.
Defensics from Synopsys is a powerful testing platform that enables developers and asset owners to proactively discover and remediate unknown vulnerabilities in software and devices. It uses fuzzing to identify and mitigate potential security threats.
A fuzzer is a piece of software that tests a piece of target software and fuzzing is the process of sending intentionally malformed inputs to a piece of software to see how it reacts. If it fails, it indicates a bug, which can then be fixed to improve the robustness and security of the target software. Fuzz testing exposes software defects and vulnerabilities more effectively than any other solution in the market.
Defensics is a fuzz testing tool that dynamically triggers and detects unknown vulnerabilities in a test environment and can be used proactively to preempt security attacks.
