No-code/low-code apps frequently store data or secrets as part of their "code" or on managed databases provided by the platform. These data or secrets must be handled appropriately to meet legal and security standards.

You probably learned in our articles about reduce risk and 4 Tipps for Security on ASERVMENT, that it is important for Data management and secure storage - to do the following:

  • data encryption both in transit and at rest.
  • Avoid storing sensitive information that needs to be protected in databases like Airtable, such as passwords, API keys, and other credentials.
  • Avoid keeping sensitive information, such as API keys and passwords, in plaintext.
  • Ensure that only the staff who require it to carry out their duties have access.
Now, what if you have a:

Low and No Code Data Leak - How to build a low and no code data loss prevention architecture?

Before we go into detail lets face the issues first.

Frist issue:

Data can be stored in the "code" of no-code or low-code applications or on controlled databases provided by the platform. Sensitive data, such as Creditcard Data, PII and financial data, are frequently held in databases run by no-code/low-code suppliers. Data storage options are up to application developers, and administrators frequently have limited access to these managed databases. Sensitive data is frequently maintained without encryption and transferred across geolocations without taking regulatory regulations into account.

Second issue:

Additionally, Citizen Developers of applications have numerous chances to hard-code secrets into their "code." Applications frequently use hard-coded secrets to access services, whether through environment variables, configuration, or code. All users with write access to the programs can access hard-coded secrets, and client-side code leaks could also make them accessible to readers of the applications or anonymous users.

third issue:

Additionally, a lot of native log streams blend metrics, sensitive data being provided via the application, and application logs. On many platforms, logs will include real data items that are already in use by the program. You can most of the time access passwords and confidential data via these logs.

How does Aservment solve these issues?

Prevent Data Loss in no and low code?

  • Inform business users on the security, privacy, and compliance risks associated with data storage.
  • Keep an eye out for sensitive data in managed databases, environment variables, and configurations offered by no-code/low-code providers. We build the first AI-watcher that detects data loss in low and no code!
  • Assure that applications with access to sensitive data are handled by security teams. You need to implement access rules and an access management system.
ASERVMENT can help you to build and deploy this framework! Feel free to join our security platform.
