It is true that web apps bring flexibility to the businesses and help in reaching out to millions of potential customers around the world. But the one thing, which is becoming a concern is security issues created by new internet threats.
With the rise in the usage of web applications, web security services have become essential for both large or small organizations. Threats targeting web applications are growing in number & sophistication, hence there is a need of website security testing which increases protection beyond network security & endpoint protection.
Essential business applications, which contain sensitive data related to customers & business processes are at high-security risk.
Websites get hacked because of three things:
- Access Control
- Software Vulnerabilities
- Third-Party Integrations
Types of web application security testing:
- Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST): This testing method is used to find out the vulnerabilities in a web, which an attacker could target& try to exploit. This testing approach can be done quickly & frequently as this tool don’t require access to the application’s source code.
- Static Application Security Testing (SAST): SAST approach also looks for vulnerabilities, but it requires access to the application’s source code.
Every business needs to understand that their website is a necessary building block for establishing an online market presence. Therefore, website security testing needs to be carried out to ensure whether a web app is capable of preventing the unauthorized users from accessing the resource & data. In web applications, security testing plays a significant role as it helps businesses to identify the vulnerabilities/weakness of the website or web app.
