Everything You Need to know About Web Application Security Scanning

Almost every business these days runs a website, web application, or offers web services. These websites are the best platforms for these businesses to reach out to their target audience and grow their brand. But this comes with a lot of risk of cyberattacks. You never know when a malicious cyberattack exploits a security loophole in your web application and gives access to hackers. This is surely not a problem that your business can afford to deal with. This is where web application security scanning can prove to be quite handy in protecting your web application against a wide range of cyberattacks. 

 

What Is Web Application Security Scanning?

Web applications security scanning is the process of identifying hidden security vulnerabilities in a web application. A set of well-defined input test cases and event handlers are executed on the web application to detect all kinds of security vulnerabilities before they are exploited by the malicious cyber attack executed by hackers. 

Merely exploring these hidden security loopholes is not the only purpose of web application security scanning. A proper remediation plan is mapped out to minimise these risks for long-term security. Necessary actions are recommended to transform your vulnerable and unsafe web application into a much more secure one. 

 

What Issues Can Web Application Security Scanning Detect?

Website or web application hacking techniques have evolved a lot with hackers adopting smarter ways to breach your confidential data. Web Application Security Scanning can offer your web application safety from these types of common vulnerabilities:

  • SQL Injection
  • Sensitive Data Exposure
  • Broken Authentication and Session Management
  • Broken Access Control
  • Cross-Site Scripting
  • XML External Entities
  • Insufficient Logging & Monitoring

Even one of these hacking techniques is enough to pose a serious threat to your security, if executed correctly by the hackers. A security-oriented approach is required for you to maintain safety from such vulnerabilities. But first, you need professional assistance to root out all the existing security issues in your web application.
