Frameworks Security Hotspots (CVEs)
Have you heard recently about what happened to Equifax with Struts? Highlight helps you identify security issues that your applications may have before black hats get their hands on it. It verifies if the frameworks and third-party libraries contain CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) across 100K+ vulnerabilities referenced by MITRE and NIST.
How are your applications compared to industry peers? Are your core business applications more resilient or complex than the average? Highlight benchmarks each application in your portfolio against 1700+ anonymous applications. Compare “apples to apples” using more than a dozen benchmarking dimensions (e.g. technology, application type or exposure, team skills and turnover ratio, total end-users, etc.).
Trends on Application KPIs
How do you ensure your application KPI are effectively improved? Is your software health decreasing or increasing across time? Highlight records the evolution of each health/sizing indicator to let you know if your remediation strategy is finally paying off.
