What Is Web Application Penetration Testing?
« on: January 29, 2024, 04:55:11 PM »
A Pen Test, as the name suggests, is a test that focuses solely on a web application and not on a whole network or company. Penetration testing for web applications is carried out by initiating simulated attacks, both internally and externally, to get access to sensitive data.

A web penetration testing allows us to determine any security weakness of the entire web application and across its components, including the source code, database, and back-end network). This helps the developer prioritize the pinpointed web app vulnerabilities and threats as well as come up with strategies to mitigate them.
