WaveMaker Adds Security Enhancements to Its Rapid Application Development Platform
WaveMaker has announced two new security enhancements to its enterprise-class Rapid Application Development platform. The WaveMaker platform now supports Single Sign-on for WaveMaker-built and deployed applications using Central Authentication Server (CAS), which permits users to access multiple applications by providing credentials such as UserID and password only once. WaveMaker also announced that it meets the standards addressing the top ten list of web application vulnerabilities published by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).

In its initial release of its RAD platform WaveMaker built application security natively, and subsequently strengthened its security with enterprise-class, RAD-based application security. And now, with CAS-based Single Sign-on offers a higher level of application security while simplifying application access for users.

And with the certification of compliance with the OWASP Top 10 list, WaveMaker applications made with WaveMaker will comply with the directives of OWASP.

WaveMaker's focus on security extends beyond the application and to the APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that allow multiple applications to link and interoperate. The RAD platform allows developers to build native microservices-based applications, and with the new release, introduces token-based authentication for APIs, allowing API keys to be generated rapidly for consumption by other applications.
