Organizations in online industries such as e-commerce, banking and healthcare collect and provide access to data that can be classified as highly confidential. This extremely sensitive information makes a rather tempting target for hackers looking to make their fame by compromising corporate systems and thieving critical data. For the past three years, vulnerable web applications have lead to a number of dangerous exploits such as XSS (cross site scripting) and SQL injection, which count for a substantial amount of reported intrusions. While security begins with proper implementation and configuration, one tool that can help put your organization on a secure path is a software technology known as web application scanning.
