WEB APPLICATION SECURITY TESTING

Protect your enterprise with web application security testing

Web application security testing is critical to protecting your both your apps and your organization. Your web applications are likely to be the #1 attack vector for malicious individuals seeking to breach your security defenses. Available to users 24/7, web apps are the easiest target for hackers seeking access to confidential back-end data.

Web application security testing solutions are readily available, but most require a significant capital investment in hardware or software. Many web application testing tools are difficult to use and hard to keep upgraded – a critical priority in a fast evolving threat landscape. And for many software development teams, adding web application security testing technology to the software development process is problematic, as it can be a drag on aggressive lifecycle deadlines.
