How to Successfully Reduce Security Risks within Your Application

Any business application having sensitive data and information about its customers and business processes is at risk from attackers, hackers, and malicious viruses. Such attacks can disrupt an organization's service, and the organization can lose its credibility and customers. Altogether, no one wants to hire an undependable service that is vulnerable to viruses and data loss.

Thus, every organization that offers online services needs to take security measures that not just cover proprietary client or server applications but also web applications. Measures such as website and application security testing can protect an organization's websites, services, and networks from malicious users.

According to industry experts, every software application depends on different types of software components such as the web server, databases, and operating system. During website security testing, vulnerabilities are checked in such components. Software testers find vulnerabilities and report immediately to eliminate it as soon as possible. These vulnerabilities are repaired by application security which is handled by a proactive IT team.  

However, if an enterprise is smart enough to run its web and mobile applications through the security testing services, then it will protect its service from various risks. Companies can opt for hiring a reliable and renowned application security testing services. By opting for these services, businesses can ensure that companies are fully compliant with every rule and regulation. This will also ensure sustainability of a company in the longer run.

Security testing essentially works on 6 principles:

  • Authentication
  • Authorization
  • Confidentiality
  • Integrity
  • Availability
  • Non-Repudiation

These principles establish the foundation for any test. In order to identify whether your security testing is successful or not. You have to count on these principles. Sounds equivalent to that of resource management, but are fairly opposite.

  • Authorization cannot be described well than the access control which is in the hands of a particular individual.
  • Availability refers to the assurance for the establishment of communication & information services as and when required.
  • Confidentiality is a process of keeping the data private. No third party can be aware of the test. The matter is kept private within an organization.
  • Integrity refers to protecting information so that any unauthorized party is not able to modify it.
  • Authenticity showcases the validity of any anticipated software.
  • Non-Repudiation is to circumvent any conflict between sender and receiver by ultimate renunciation.

The principles mentioned above were the fundamentals of testing. Let's learn more about the procedure.

A Security Test is a process which is associated with testing of the security of an application. To make sure that the test turns out to be effective. There are four main steps to take care:

  • Authentication
  • Encryption
  • Data Access
  • Network Security

These days, for any organization to work properly, it is mandatory to get these four things in your security testing process.
