Web App Security Testing

Web app security testing is critical to fending off threats.

Web applications have become the #1 point of attack for cyber criminals, making web app security testing an essential part of enterprise security. Because web applications are available 24/7 and provide users with access to data, they are typically the first target for hackers seeking to breach an organization’s defenses. Once malicious individuals gain access to web apps, they can typically also access back-end data that is often confidential, proprietary and highly sensitive. For this reason, securing web applications must be a top priority for enterprise IT teams today.

Web app security testing can help to meet this challenge, but most solutions to date have been expensive and time-consuming to use. App security testing solutions often require a significant investment in on-premises hardware and software, as well as the additional staff to operate, maintain and upgrade them in order to keep pace with the quickly changing threat landscape.

Veracode provides an easier, more effective solution: cloud-based web app security testing services that require no capital investment at no additional or specialized expertise.
