Web application security testing solutions

Successfully venturing and breaking into the vast and diversified technology market means much more than just having a new product. A new network security company must bring revolutionary technology, along with preferably a host of elegant resolutions to otherwise complicated and costly solutions, and at the same time it should naturally integrate well with the web security world around it, so as to distinguish itself from the crowd. Security is a major concern for enterprises and they won’t easily put their money in organizations which don’t have any customers from the fortune 500 list. You want to be the best, when it comes to security. And not many customers would brag that they have the second best security solution. A new security company is without a doubt challenged by the existence of a behemoths like McAfee, Trend Micro, Symantec, KasperSky, just to name a few, from a host of others. Any upcoming security company must provide something better than the best to succeed, is the least that can be said.

The number of transactions on the web has also increased tenfold, so proper security testing of web applications has become a necessity. Security testing, in simple terms, is the process which ensures that confidential data remains confidential and that any user can perform only those tasks which he/she is authorized to perform. If the user can alter it in any way, when he is not allowed to, then there is bound to be a weakness in the web application. Causes of such weaknesses include bugs in the application, injection of various malicious SQL or Script codes or the presence of viruses.
