The smart video solution from AMETRAS vision withstood an OWASP 10 security test and passed the penetration test on its second attempt. APF video+ now leads users in the service centres of CEP depots and forwarding agents not only extremely quickly, but also securely to the package they are looking for! Customers can rely on the high security level of the software.
The security of APF video+ put to the Test
Earlier this year, the AMETRAS video solution went through a comprehensive external security audit. According to the standards of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), the APF video+ software was tested for critical security vulnerabilities. The non-profit organisation OWASP regularly lists the ten biggest security risks of web applications.
The findings of this penetration test were analysed and categorised in detail, leading the AMETRAS development team to immediately get to work on closing the existing security gaps. The re-test carried out a few weeks later confirmed the effectiveness of the measures taken: APF video+ met all required security criteria according to the OWASP Top 10 - 2017 Vulnerability List.
Since April, all delivered releases have been classified as secure. Customers of previous releases also received the latest security patches in a special update process.
