Web applications are a critical asset to many New Zealand organisations and in many cases serves as the front door and as the primary brand identity to its customers.
The exponential rise of web applications is enabling business to revolutionise the customer experience in today’s highly competitive environment. Whilst adoption of cloud technologies has changed the operational side of web application development and deployment, it has become important to confirm that applications remain safe no matter where they reside.
Let’s face it, with the rapid growth in web application development, web application security testing is a critical component in the software development lifecycle – but many organisations do not include security testing as part of their application development process.
It’s no surprise then that web and mobile applications are under constant siege for potential compromise and data breaches as hackers’ methods continue to evolve through the use of new, sophisticated attack mechanisms. A recent survey highlighted that, ‘Applications and Identities are the initial targets in 86% of reported breaches’.
