Improve application security with web penetration testing.

Manual web penetration testing is an essential component of any software testing protocol. With a growing number of threats to the application layer, organizations must constantly test for flaws that could compromise web application security. While automated testing can find many vulnerabilities, there are some authorization issues and business logic flaws that only manual web penetration testing can accurately discover.

Traditionally, a web application pen test has been an expensive prospect. Completing manual web penetration testing can take weeks, and it’s a methodology that can’t scale in the same way as automated testing. Yet to ensure secure applications, organizations are advised to conduct manual web penetration testing on every application at least once a year.

When looking for web penetration testing solutions that are easier and more cost-effective to execute, growing number of organizations today turn to Veracode.
