Just Eat Takeaway.com improves product security with DerScanner

Just Eat Takeaway.com, a European food delivery marketplace, uses a static code analyzer DerScanner to improve the security of developed applications. The company relies on the scanner developed by DerSecur to strengthen the security of the applications that allow the platform to interact with its customers, employees and partners.

Just Eat Takeaway.com is an online meal delivery platform founded in 2000. The service is available in more than 15 European countries, as well as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Today, the platform brings together more than 600,000 restaurants. The service processed more than 1.1 billion orders in 2021. Given the nature of the business and the extreme importance of customer data privacy, the security and reliability of the company’s business software are critical. This is why Just Eat Takeaway.com applies the secure development approach. And the DerScanner code analyzer has become a part of this process.

“When looking for the scanner on which to build our secure development process, we evaluated the capabilities of the world’s leading vendors,” said Vyacheslav Fadyushin, InfoSec and Head of IT Security at Just Eat Takeaway.com. “In the end, we chose DerScanner. We were surprised by the very convenient licensing model as well as the impressive capabilities of the product. DerScanner is an optimal solution to our main challenge of checking the health of our product’s code.

The binary code scanning capability, which checks existing applications for vulnerabilities and undisclosed functionality, is also highly valued by Just Eat Takeaway.com. Additionally, the company noted the high quality technical support provided by the DerSecur team. The provider has extensive information security expertise and obtains the latest information on cyber threats from various sources. Thanks to this, DerSecur can quickly respond to new vulnerabilities by adding appropriate search algorithms.

“The secure development approach has now become mandatory for the majority of modern enterprises,” said Dan Chernov, CTO of DerSecur. “This is of paramount importance for organizations that run their business online. Vulnerabilities in mobile and web applications increase the chances of a successful cyberattack that can lead to major financial and reputational risks. Therefore, it is necessary to incorporate state-of-the-art code analysis methods into the secure development process. DerSecur is based on extensive research and modern technologies that we apply in our DerScanner product.

DerScanner is a static application code scanner capable of identifying vulnerabilities and undocumented features. Its distinguishing feature is the ability to scan not only source code, but also executables (i.e. binaries) and return much better results than when using DAST. The analyzer can test applications written in 36 programming languages ​​or that have been compiled into an executable file with one of 9 extensions, including those for Google Android, Apple iOS, and Apple macOS.
