Application Security Risk Report

Application Security Risk Report

Attacks targeting the application layer are on the rise.

Standards and legislation provide incomplete security coverage:

  • 61% of applications had at least one Critical and High Issue NOT covered by OWASP Top 10.
  • This up 12% YOY, from 49% to 61%.

Open source code has blind spots:

  • Among the top movers in applications with vulnerabilities mapped to the OWASP TOP 10: A9 “Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities” had a significant 16% increase.
  • 87% of the applications tested inherit a critical severity vulnerability from referenced components—up by 22% since 2017.
