Secure development

ApprovalMax develops security best practices and frameworks according to OWASP Top 10 and SANS Top 25.
To ensure the highest security in our software, we use the following best practices:
  1. Developers participate in regular security training to learn about common vulnerabilities and threats.
  2. We review our code for security vulnerabilities.
  3. We regularly update our dependencies and make sure none of them has known vulnerabilities.
  4. We use Static Application Security Testing (SAST) to detect basic security vulnerabilities in our codebase.
  5. We rely on yearly third-party security experts to perform penetration tests of our applications.
