Background

As a heavily security regulated company by the local Filipino government, Maya is invested in the security of their platform and adhering to PCI-DSS compliance policies and procedures.

With their previous DAST solutions, the team ran into operational inefficiencies such as long scan times, high false positives, manual testing, and overall business delays, which also increased the potential for risk of bug/vulnerabilities undetected for periods of time.

“Our scan times range from 20-30 minutes with StackHawk, compared to 20 minutes to 2 hours with our previous DAST solutions.”

Choosing a Solution

With high developer adoption, the team at Maya wanted to ensure an application security testing solution aligned with their business goals of delivering applications faster to support the overall growth of the business. Understanding the importance of security testing early in the software delivery lifecycle, the team was focused on a solution that was purpose-built to integrate with existing DevTools like Jenkins and Gitlab CI. Additionally, the team was looking to automate DAST for web and API security testing.

“With StackHawk, being embedded in the pipeline it enabled our developers to detect and remediate the vulnerability right away even before any security audits, which reduces the time to remediate to only a few days compared to weeks before the implementation.”

Experience with StackHawk

StackHawk has significantly increased operational efficiencies and speed to market by reducing manual testing with automated API calls and time spent between teams (Developers and DevSec) on triage and fix. Additionally, integrating StackHawk was seamless.

“StackHawk saves us a lot of hours (approximately 1.25 every day) doing back and forth calls to why and how a vulnerability should be fixed.”

With a larger number of Developers, Maya was able to integrate 65% in 4 months. Additionally, StackHawk continues to meet Maya’s compliance requirements, passing with flying colors with their ISO auditor.
