Web application security assessment tool for today’s complex Web applications built on emerging Web 2.0 technologies

 

CURRENT THREAT SCENARIO

Traditionally, organizations focused security efforts on infrastructure defenses, not the application layer. However, the inherent architecture of the Internet, coupled with poor programming techniques and a lack of security built into applications, gives hackers perfect access to exploit these applications. The truth is: Hackers are using Web based applications to infiltrate companies, steal data and exploit users.The numbers of attacks have grown exponentially over the years with the explosion of Web applications. In addition, as many organizations are currently investing in application modernization, Web 2.0 opens up a whole new threat and vulnerability landscape that needs to be addressed.
