Web App Attacks Surge 800%, otto-js Announces Integrated Runtime Vulnerability Detection for GitHub Advanced Security

Software supply chain attacks increased a shocking 650% in 2021; web app attacks grew 800% compared to 2019; and Cybersecurity Workforce Estimate and Cybersecurity Workforce Gap suggest the global cybersecurity workforce needs to grow 65% to defend organizations' critical assets effectively.

ATLANTA - August 17, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

otto JavaScript Security announced its integration of Client-side 3rd-party Application Security Testing & Monitoring to GitHub Advanced Security. otto-js is a next-generation runtime 3rd-party supply chain security testing & monitoring tool in GitHub, bringing cybersecurity to developer-centric tooling. Engineering teams can now leverage otto-js for continuous testing & monitoring for risk & vulnerabilities being introduced at runtime by 3rd & Nth party scripts.

According to one recent study, software supply chain attacks increased a shocking 650% in 2021, web app attacks grew 800% compared to 2019, and Cybersecurity Workforce Estimate and Cybersecurity Workforce Gap suggest the global cybersecurity workforce needs to grow 65% to defend organizations' critical assets effectively.

"When you consider the incredibly insufficient number of security experts worldwide (roughly 3.5 million) compared to the vast number of developers on GitHub (83 million), it's clear the industry needs to focus on building integrated security solutions for developers," said otto-js Co-founder & CEO Maggie Louie.

GitHub code scanning, part of its Advanced Security offering, runs security checks across code as it's created, automating application security as an integral part of the developer workflow. otto-js' 3rd-party Client-Side AppSec testing and monitoring works alongside GitHub security products, like Dependabot, for software composition analysis (SCA) to provide comprehensive application security testing, visibility, protection, and control over supply chain vulnerabilities and attacks.

"GitHub has a relentless focus on the developer experience. We understand that developers want to stay focused on writing code, and not switching from tool to tool. Integrating actionable security notifications from GitHub Advanced Security and the growing partners in our marketplace helps to reduce the time to remediate security issues by keeping developers in flow. otto's addition to the GitHub Marketplace delivers a dynamic application testing solution (DAST) for third-party JavaScript vulnerabilities that occur in runtime and complements customers' existing security stacks," said Clay Nelson, VP of Enterprise Sales - Central US GitHub.

With the vision of supporting teams that are severely short-staffed in cybersecurity, Chad Fowler, former CTO of Wunderlist and Chief Product Officer at otto-js, led the development of otto's user interface "ottoBox" and functional design to embody an "Inbox Zero" methodology.

"The problem with most cybersecurity and threat detection tools is they require a lot of security expertise to understand, let alone manage. Even security experts spend hours in conventional tools trying to review and classify thousands of requests to figure out which represent risks. It seemed like the industry needed something intuitive and automated, so you don't need all the charts and analytics. Instead, you have a very practical solution for teams needing to move quickly and get back to their core jobs," said Fowler.

In 2021, JavaScript developers requested an estimated 1.5 trillion packages from npm, a 50% YoY increase. The modern web app now has, on average, 80 dependencies. Many of these third-party scripts interact with sensitive user data in the browser at runtime, creating a blind spot for security and making the third-party supply chain a popular and profitable new attack surface for bad actors.

otto-js loads with the code in the client-side browser at runtime, where it continuously monitors the third-party supply chain for vulnerabilities and risky script behaviors, like reading credentials/PII data and sending customer data to external servers. The company also provides mitigation for client-side attacks like Magecart and malware.

As the deadline for new PCI DSS V4 compliance approaches & GDPR security standards accelerate, otto-js is a significant and timely addition to the GitHub Marketplace. Fuelled by growing cyber threats and privacy concerns across all industries, leveraging developer platforms like GitHub to enable developer-centric security solutions will be critical to the evolution of cybersecurity and cyber resilience.

About otto-js

otto JavaScript Security (otto-js) is a client-side application security startup based in Atlanta, GA, with offices in Memphis, TN, and London, UK. otto empowers engineers to test, monitor, detect and control third-party client-side vulnerabilities and third-party script behavior live at runtime. With client-side DevOps testing tools, defensive protection, and dynamic policy management, otto is giving developers the visibility, protection, and control to secure third-party supply chain dependencies from client-side vulnerabilities & attacks.

Kids’ Talent Agency Stellar NYC Introduces Fresh Talent and New Influencer Board

Boutique NYC kids' talent agency opens a new board for social media influencers.

Kids’ Talent Agency Stellar NYC Introduces Fresh Talent and New Influencer Board
Logo

Company logo

Stellar NYC widens its network of young talents with its new Influencer board to cater to the social media marketing needs of its growing client base.

Stellar NYC, founded by licensed talent agent Stella Roman in 2014, has always sought to fill gaps in the talent industry. Aside from representing kids in the areas of Print, Commercial, and Theater (On-screen), its fourth board—Inclusive—was born because of the lack of representation for children with disabilities. 

"I still remember receiving that email from a parent - so upset - saying she wishes children who use wheelchairs like her son were more represented in ads. Right then, I knew that pushing for more inclusivity in the industry was something I had to do," Roman recalled.  

Now, the upsurge of social media marketing and content creators has prompted the agency to dedicate a fifth division for managing 'mini-influencers' and their parents/families on various online platforms, including but not limited to Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube.

Some of the influencers under the care of Stellar NYC are well-known family and lifestyle content creators @AmazingAbigailGrace@Kikioella, and @zhansayadixon, who have audiences ranging from thousands to millions of followers.

Influencer division head and social media manager Em Meagher manages these talents with her extensive experience as a digital influencer herself and hopes to deliver success similar to previous and ongoing projects of the company. 

Stellar NYC is the agency representing the young boy who uses a wheelchair and went viral after being placed in a 2020 Target ad and later was invited as a guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. The talent agency has also booked kids on projects with top brands such as GAP, NIKE, and Steve Madden, as well as secured its talented actors work on top network shows and movies featured on Netflix, Disney+ and HBO.

Clients interested in working with Stellar NYC's influencers may check the media kit or inquire at [email protected] Clients interested in booking talent for all other divisions may email [email protected]

Parents needing representation for their kid models and talents can also reach out to the agency by emailing [email protected] for those residing in and around the New York City area. While those out of state and seeking representation in L.A., FL, or Chicago can email [email protected] Influencers can send their details to [email protected]
