Web software applications are complex, but without the right security, they can be easy to hack. Due to web applications’ complexity, it is important to test every single aspect of the program, both on the front and back end. This is no easy feat.
Hackers tend to look for the easiest way into your organization, so if you have a small IT team, you may be limited on resources to identify vulnerabilities. Additionally, most organizations follow a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) schedule instead of a fixed release when updating their applications. This continuous process opens the door for more technical risks. With each release, your team needs to be on top of managing these vulnerabilities. Hiring security experts outside of your IT team can be costly, and it may be difficult to retain them.
Now there are technologies that help identify security risks in your applications. The best tools combine:
