LCAP’s Missing Link:
Modern Security Practices and Tooling.

By empowering anyone to create complex applications by abstracting code, LCAP platforms greatly simplify and speed up the application development experience.They make application development accessible for anyone in the business, so that they can build what they need, when they need it, and on their own – without waiting on professional developers or IT. Yet, with the power of LCAP comes a variety of potential security risks.

  • Security teams often have no visibility over LCAP platforms and what resources are created by whom, as existing observability tools are unable to address low-code/no-code development
  • LCAP platforms escape the purview of the traditional Software Development Lifecycle, and frequently cause security teams to miss environment separation controls and security gates, making it very easy for business users to quickly introduce insecure applications into production environments
  • Applications created using LCAP often result in sensitive business data or PII being accessed and transferred in new ways. Since existing security and compliance solutions don’t pick up low-code/no-code applications, these applications likely violate compliance requirements like GDPR or HIPAA. Further, LCAP developers often are not fully aware of the compliance mandates, and the implications of not meeting them
  • As efficient and effective as low-code/no-code development is, the simplicity can result in security problems. It is common for makers to use custom or third-party connectors, which they introduce into their environments without proper sanitation or monitoring, and can result in widespread supply chain attacks and vulnerabilities.

This can result in failed audits, supply-chain and malware-related risks, and lost time for security teams.

Zenity Protects Against Low-Code/No-Code Security Risks

Zenity is the sentinel that protects enterprises against low-code/no-code application security risks by automatically discovering all low-code/no-code development, assessing risks that they present, and automatically mitigating risks based on playbooks and policies.

Full LCAP Visibility

The first step in securing low-code/no-code applications is knowing what resources have been created, by whom and when, if any modifications have been made, and how these resources are connected to other elements and data in your environment. Zenity automatically compiles an inventory of LCAP resources to provide full visibility into potential risks.

Risk Assessment

By parsing low-code/no-code application definitions, relationships and data flows, Zenity identifies application security risks such as exposed secrets, misconfigurations, breaking of least privilege principles, data leaks, and more.

Continuous Governance

Zenity doesn’t just alert IT or security teams about low-code/no-code security risks. One of the core principles in dealing with such risks is manageability at scale – which is why Zenity also provides automated enforcement and mitigation actions via playbooks, and detailed mitigation and triage data to stop attackers in their tracks.

LCAP Solutions Should Be Advantageous for Business Users, Not Security Liabilities

Zenity ensures that you can leverage LCAP to move quickly in creating applications, automations, and workflows while ensuring that security is built to keep up, and scale. Make LCAP solutions a source of speed and efficiency for citizen-developers, not a security liability.

By supporting a variety of popular LCAP solutions, such as Microsoft Power Platform, Salesforce, ServiceNow, Appian, OutSystems, and more, Zenity helps our customers secure apps and data no matter which tools you use.
