Website security must be a priority in any organization but remains overlooked. Hackers continue to concentrate on web-based applications – shopping carts, forms, login pages, dynamic content, etc.
Web applications are accessible 24/7 and control valuable data since they often have direct access to back-end data.
Any defense at network security level will provide no protection against web application attacks since they are launched on port 80 – which has to remain open.
In addition, web applications are often tailor-made therefore tested less than off-the-shelf software and are more likely to have undiscovered vulnerabilities.
