The fictional Juice Shop that I set up to demonstrate OWASP Top 10 risks is getting a workout. The Juice Shop app, which I developed on the HyperQube test platform, is designed to be super vulnerable – with “as many holes as Swiss cheese.”
In this next installment, I discuss how to quickly and easily address the security and compliance risks associated with a missing or bad SSL certificate – an issue that falls under two OWASP risk categories – Cryptographic Storage as well as Software and Integrity Failure, #2 and #8 of the OWASP Top 10.
SSL certificates provide cryptographic functions that ensure data integrity and are required for regulatory compliance. Sites lacking valid SSL certificates may be flagged as unsafe, leading to high bounce rates. But managing certificates is a hassle, and if one goes invalid, addressing the issue takes time and effort.
Ericom ZTEdge Web Application Isolation (WAI), an innovative cloud-delivered security solution that isolates web/cloud applications and their APIs from cyber-threats, functions as a much-improved, perimeter-less “next-gen” WAF solution. WAI policy-based controls that take the hassle out of managing SSL certificates, ensuring that they are always in place.

Using black hat SEO to achieve high rankings for particular search terms, threat actors can sit back as victims flock to their malware-infected websites.
As one of the keys to implementing least-privilege access, microsegmentation is an essential element in the Zero Trust toolbox.
In this post, we update the layered security concept for the age of Zero Trust, cloud computing, application-based work and work-from-anywhere.
