Invicti launches AI-enabled predictive risk scoring for application security testing


Invicti has announced its new AI-enabled Predictive Risk Scoring capability, which assigns predicted risk to applications and helps organisations gain a strategic view of their overall application security risk.

According to Invicti, Predictive Risk Scoring allows organisations to determine which web applications should be scanned first and proactively prioritise remediation efforts.

This new capability remaps the application security testing process to profile and calculate a risk score on all discovered web applications–before any scanning begins.

Risk management and prioritisation are ongoing challenges in application security with the high volume of vulnerabilities that are discovered across web applications and APIs.

While vulnerability severity helps order which vulnerabilities might require attention over others, there’s still a lack of information around exploitability and risk.

“Everyone working in cybersecurity needs to work faster, with more confidence that they are doing the right thing to protect their organisations. This new advancement in AppSec testing helps make that a reality,” said Neil Roseman, CEO at Invicti. “CISOs can now look at their application attack surface using a risk-based approach, guaranteeing that their AppSec program is focusing efforts in the right areas.”

Predictive Risk Scoring addresses the gap in vulnerability severity information by applying an AI model on discovered assets and calculating risk score from a set of 220 parameters with a minimum 83% confidence level.

Among many advantages from this innovation, no scanning resources are required and no customer data is required to assess the risk score.

“Protecting applications is crucial for companies of all sizes but it’s challenging with the complexity and noise in the application security market, amplified with the adoption of AI,” said Melinda Marks, Practice Director, Cybersecurity at ESG. “Now more than ever, security teams need to prioritise their efforts to address to the riskiest issues, with speed and scale.

“Risk-based prioritisation can help organisations best deploy their resources and optimise efficiency to secure their environments to support business growth.”
