Web application security testing is the process of testing, analyzing and reporting on the security level and/or posture of a Web application.
The key objective behind Web application security testing is to identify any vulnerabilities or threats that can jeopardize the security or integrity of the Web application.
These applications expose customer information, financial data and other sensitive and confidential data over the Internet and Intranet. With the accessibility of such critical data, proactive security assurance for these applications becomes paramount. Organizations should unfailingly incorporate application security assessments in their quality assurance program to manage the apparent risks.
Typically, Web application security testing is performed after the Web application is developed. The Web application undergoes a rigorous testing process that includes a series of fabricated malicious attacks to see how well the Web application performs/responds. The overall security testing process is generally followed by a format report that includes the identified vulnerabilities, possible threats and recommendations for overcoming the security shortfalls.
