What Is Web Application Penetration Testing?

Web application penetration testing involves a methodological series of steps aimed at gathering information about the target system, finding vulnerabilities or faults in them, researching for exploits that will succeed against those faults or vulnerabilities and compromise the web application.

Why Web Application Pen Tests Are Performed

Due to the enormous expansion of web applications, more and more internet resources are being spent on developing the software as well as configuring the applications to work properly on this new landscape.

This newfound frontier has however opened up another vector of attack that malicious hackers can use for their personal gains

Considering that some web applications hold sensitive data, it is important to keep them secure at all times, especially since a lot of them are publicly exposed to the internet.

Performing the web app penetration testing as part of your Software Development Life Cycle or SDLC process would be the best and most cost-effective strategy in fighting off web application vulnerabilities.
