Web App Security
Web applications are an integral part of our technology toolkit. Yet, as web apps become an everyday part of our lives, they are developing into a bigger target for malicious attacks. Web application security should be a top priority for businesses big and small since 50 percent of security breaches occur through web applications.
Is your web app secure?
The professionals at Cryptex review your processes, procedures, and frameworks to find vulnerabilities and provide the most effective solutions. Whether your app is in production or has already been released, we protect against all types of cyber threats.
Hackers can steal:
- Confidential Company Data
- Financial and Credit Card Information
- User Accounts and Passwords
These attacks are growing in volume and devastation. There are several reasons why hackers love web apps:
Web apps are connected to the Internet which creates an open access gate for widely available dangerous tools, like SQL injections or session hijacking. Instead of infiltrating a remote program, attackers can simply login from anywhere in the world. In a growing number of cases, hackers don't even need to use outside programs. Hackers use legitimate user credentials that are weak, default, or stolen to access your web app.
Newer Security Controls
Web apps have exploded in recent time, but overall security does not pace with threats. Web apps normally don't have the same defenses in place for older computer systems like networks or operating systems. Less layers of security means more opportunities for breaches.
Quick Development and Mixed Code
Some web developers use short-cuts and bad coding practices to meet deadlines faster. Design and function are prioritized while security is overlooked. Also, a more popular way to develop web apps is to incorporate code from a variety of entities including in-house, contractor, and third-party resources. While advantageous, this hybrid code can lead to more vulnerabilities.
Web apps. Great for users; easy prey for hackers
What can your business do to protect against web application threats?
Cryptex protects the good guys in your organization and keeps the hackers out. We protect against top vulnerabilities such as code injections, invalidated redirects, and sensitive data exposure. Web application vulnerabilities normally start at the foundation. Weak programming allows for bugs to creep inside undetected.
