Breaches are increasing exponentially. Mostly, hackers exploit vulnerabilities of software to extract data or even cause harm. Imagine confidentiality/reputation of your company is lost just like that because you gave least importance to testing!
To effectively tackle this situation you have to think like a hacker. You have to fish out all the vulnerabilities of your software so that it becomes strong and hack proof.
Testing can ensure maximum safety so that you can be tension free once the product is deployed.
Remember! They are waiting for an opportunity. Do not give it to them. The loss can be devastating.
Performing security testing on constant intervals will reveal how strong your software is.
However, there are certain times when testing has to be mandatory which includes,
Application Penetration Testing
Network penetration testing
Infrastructure penetration testing
Mobile application security testing
Software vulnerability testing
