Website & Application Security Testing

Website & Application Security Testing


More than 70 per cent of all attacks are aimed at the Application layer. This service examines your web applications from coding and implementation flaws through to other issues like SQL injection and cross-site-scripting, involving active exploitation of vulnerabilities. Security testing is an extremely important – but often overlooked – component of website testing.

Having a website security check is vital since websites now play a huge role in attracting clients to your business and potential customers want to feel safe while browsing or buying online. Web Application Security Testing should be part of any organization’s risk assessment phase prior to launching live services.
