Prevent SQL injection in .NET applications.

SQL injection in .NET applications remains one of the most common threats to application security. The reason: the rewards to attackers are high, while the skill required to pull off an attack is low.

Here’s how an SQL injection in .NET applications most often works: attackers enter SQL commands into something like the form fields on a website, as part of a database query. For .NET applications that don’t adequately clean or validate these inputs, the SQL commands may be executed by the database, giving attackers access to unauthorized data, or to control of the application itself.

While performing an SQL injection in .NET is relatively easy, the results can be devastating. Data may be lost or stolen, user credentials may be exposed, or attackers may alter the way an application and its database behave.

While preventing SQL injection in .NET software is relatively easy, many organizations lack the proper app security testing technology to stop it. Traditionally, this was because web application scanning solutions were expensive to deploy, time-consuming to manage and a drag on the productivity of development teams.

Veracode has changed all that with cloud-based testing technology that makes application security faster, easier and more cost efficient.
