Next-Level AppSec Training for Leading Super Apps

Super apps have become a necessity because of their multiple services merged into one convenient interface. However, these diverse features also increase the risk of security vulnerabilities. A leading super app from Southeast Asia has this problem, and that's why they decided to partner with AppSecEngineer. 

With AppSecEngineer's expertise, the super app needed to strengthen its security measures across the board to protect its user's sensitive data.

Challenge

The super app was struggling to train its developers. Their existing training programs were too theoretical with their focus on generic principles without providing any practical, hands-on experience. The lab environments were inconsistent, which disrupted the learning flow and limited the scope to just secure coding remediation. They're unable to provide their dev teams with a deeper understanding of real-world attacks and their potential impact.

Solution

The company found a perfect solution to its training challenges in AppSecEngineer. Our platform was ready to provide tailored learning paths to address the specific needs of the super app's development team.

  • Each developer received their own easily accessible lab environment. We eliminated the inconsistencies that had previously disrupted the learning experience.
  • AppSecEngineer offered a vast library of content covering all the essential topics, from AppSec fundamentals to DevSecOps, cloud security, Kubernetes, containers, and even threat modeling.
  • The training was structured into focused modules so that each team member could cherry-pick the most relevant skills for their respective roles.
  • AppSecEngineer provided cloud sandboxes so developers didn’t need to have personal cloud accounts and the associated costs.
  • New materials were regularly added to the platform to keep the team engaged and make sure that their skills remained current with the latest trends and best practices.

With AppSecEngineer, the company finally had a solution that not only addressed the skill gaps within the team but also provided a more immersive and cost-effective way to train its developers. The team was excited to dive into the platform and take their skills to new heights.

Implementation and Impact

With AppSecEngineer's comprehensive training platform, the super app's security team could finally customize their learning paths and track progress through detailed analytics. Having this functionality, guaranteed that the team remained up-to-date with the latest AppSec techniques and effectively supported product teams on security requirements. The impact of this tailored training program was evident in the enhanced skills, increased engagement, and more effective support for product teams, ultimately strengthening the app's overall security posture and allowing the company to deliver a more robust and secure product to its users.

Key Takeaways

  • AppSecEngineer's platform addressed the super app's diverse training needs with scalable, reliable lab environments and a vast content library covering everything from AppSec essentials to DevSecOps, cloud security, Kubernetes, containers, and threat modeling.
  • The micro-learning approach helped team members to tailor their training by focusing on specific skills most relevant to their respective roles.
  • With regularly updated content, we kept the security team's skills current and relevant so that they could stay ahead of the curve and adapt to the latest trends and best practices.
