SD Times news digest: Protego’s DVSA, QuickLogic acquires AI company, and IoT interoperability

Serverless security solution provider Protego Labs has announced a new open-source tool designed to help developers better understand how to secure and protect their serverless applications. The Damn Vulnerable Serverless Application (DVSA) is a vulnerable app meant to test the skills and tools of security professionals in a legal environment. According to the company, it will provide common serverless vulnerabilties.

“While many companies are adopting serverless technologies and approaches, security for serverless is largely uncharted territory as traditional security methods aren’t applicable in serverless environments,” said Tal Malemed, head of security research for Protego Labs. “The DVSA enables serverless practitioners to see vulnerabilities in and test the defenses of serverless applications while learning almost everything they need to know about serverless application security.”
