Vulnerabilities Unlike traditional thick-client applications, which are locked away behind corporate firewalls, web applications are typically accessible from outside corporate networks and potentially open to dangers such as SQL Injection and application-layer denial of service attacks. This makes web application security and web service security a different beast altogether. Moreover, in case of attacks such as Cross-site Scripting, client-side JavaScript source code is right there in the browser for any malicious user to tinker with. With so many threats to sensitive data, it’s no surprise many organizations are seeking tools to help them secure their software development life cycle.

The first step to kick starting your web application security program is to look for known application vulnerabilities. Keeping known vulnerabilities out of your code base prevents attackers from easily exploiting them and running malicious code. Attacks such as SQL injection and Cross-site Scripting are usually much easier to fix than to find them, so educating developers about best practices, defining a security policy and enforcing development security standards are all important approaches when defending against web security vulnerabilities.

Acunetix is a software product for web application security testing which helps you quickly and easily identify known vulnerabilities, as well as vulnerabilities in any website or web application, including sites built with hard-to-scan HTML5 and JavaScript Single Page Applications (SPAs). With Acunetix you can:

Automatically scan all website files with custom form authentication or other custom access controls and session management

By using tools to help you simulate web application attacks, you’ll be in a position to find and fix security vulnerabilities before an attacker has the chance to exploit them. A vulnerability scanner like Acunetix also recommends actions that you can take to correct the vulnerabilities it identifies, as well as the ability to retest fixes.
