Not so long ago the majority of hacking occurred through weak links in operating systems. As those weaknesses disappeared, the focus shifted back to third-party software and devices. The result is that data is now at risk from the weakest link in your network. What that means is that even an app on someone’s cell phone with a connection to your network can become an open door for hackers. That is a general reason why app security is necessary. It does not matter if you are creating the app for in-house use, selling an app, or buying an app. What matters is that the open door is not only closed but secured.
Application Security Testing goes a long way in securing applications and software from malicious attacks or any kind of breach. With applications being the easiest target for hackers, testing is indispensable to protect a business-critical application from losing sensitive and confidential back-end data to probing parties.
