Security vulnerabilities can threaten to breach the integrity of your website or web application content, put your users at risk for sensitive data breaches such as credit card data theft, and even redirect site visitors to malware or phishing sites.
The modern web requires modern security testing tools
Traditional firewalls and TLS/SSLs do not provide protection against web application hacking since intrusions happen via the same protocols—HTTP and HTTPS—that are used to transmit information to trusted users.
Organizations seeking to to build and maintain a vulnerability management program can start by looking for tools to help them assess their current web application security posture, and track their remediation progress.
