Security Testing, Tools

Friday May 18, 2018

Web apps are future of any business. But are they secure?

According to Whitehat Security report of 2017, among the total breaches reported online, 30% was on web apps. And among the 30%, lion share was through the vulnerabilities…

So what would be the possible solution to this situation?

Obviously, testing is the only possible solution here. But the key is to perform it efficiently by keeping a lot of parameters and factors in mind and to choose the correct tool


Talking about vulnerabilities, what are most common attacks that a web app has to encounter?

  • SQL Injection (SQLi)
  • Incorporation Vulnerabilities: LFI and RFI
  • Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)
  • Brute Force Mechanism
  • Remote File Inclusion – RFI
  • Local File Inclusion (LFI)

Before tools, there are certain factors that need to be understood before going for testing.

  • Time for testing any software is less. So to compensate that effective planning, correct testing method, and flawless tools are required.
  • Use both SAST Static Application Security Testing (SAST) and Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) for effectiveness.
  • Security flaws should be rectified based on risk analysis
  • Security testing should start in the early stages of SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle)
  • DevOps practices must have security included in them. More like, DevSecOps

But the major question still persists. Tools!

A plethora of tools is available in the market. How will you choose the right one?

Do not worry we have compiled the best that’s out there in the market. Have a look at the infographic representation of them.
