The 7 Deadly Sins of Low-Code/No-Code Security and How to Avoid them

What are the top security risks and concerns for Low-Code/No-Code development?

This paper lists the seven most common Low-Code/No-Code security mistakes, how to avoid them as well as professional tips to overcome them.

Bringing Application and Cloud Security Know-How to Low-Code/No-Code Development

Zenity’s security research team is exposed to real world low-code/no-code developed apps, automations or integrations on a daily basis, and we’re glad to share our knowledge and insights about the security risks in this technology wave. This top 7 article has also served as the basis for the OWASP Low-Code/No-Code Top 10.

Empower Citizen Developers

Organizations are increasingly leveraging low-code / no-code development to get more done without exclusively relying on professional developers. Gone are the days where a select few are needed to create applications and workflows to boost efficiency and productivity for the entire workforce. Citizen developers are now able to use low-code / no-code platforms to quickly build things they need.

However, with great power comes great responsibility. Citizen developers may not have the same security acumen as professional developers and IT. Tight security and governance is needed.

At Zenity, we are laser focused on enabling security and platform teams to seamlessly protect applications, workflows, automations, bots, integrations, and connections that are developed using any low-code / no-code development platform. Our solutions are built to help improve:


Generate a continuous cross-platform inventory of all No-Code / Low-Code apps, automations, connectors, data objects, bots, and more. Gain insights that include business criticality, security risk scores, relationships, and timeline of activities.

Risk Assessment

Perform continuous risk assessment to pinpoint vulnerabilities and insecure components within implemented business logic. Mitigate risks like identity impersonation, supply-chain risks, data exfiltration, excessive sharing, and other scenarios.


Apply security and compliance standards with customized policies, remediation actions and enforcement playbooks. Ensure that any unused or unowned low-code applications are identified, assigned ownership, or removed from the environment.
