Stop SQL injections with application security testing.

SQL injections are among the most frequent threats to data security. SQL injections exploit weaknesses in software that lets criminals take control of the database for an application to access or destroy data, alter the database’s behavior and other unwanted actions.

SQL injections are successful when attackers can trick software into sending unexpected SQL commands to the database. One of the most frequent examples is when an application doesn’t adequately sanitize data entered into a web form field before including it as part of the database query. In this scenario, hackers are easily able to enter their own SQL commands in the form field and have them sent to the database.

Preventing SQL injections and website SQL attacks is fairly easy, yet many organizations fail to take the simple steps to prevent breaches which can potentially cause significant damage to business, reputation and the bottom line.

Veracode helps to prevent SQL injections and to eradicate other malicious software with a suite of on-demand application testing services that enable developers to embed security throughout the SDLC.
