Application Security Testing is a critical component of application security and the cornerstone of any software security initiative. Application Testing service is an internet security audit, performed by experienced security professionals.

Application security encompasses measures taken throughout the code’s life-cycle to prevent gaps in the security policy of an application or the underlying system(vulnerabilities) through flaws in the design, development, upgrade, or maintenance of the application.

Security testing techniques search for vulnerabilities or security holes in applications. These vulnerabilities leave applications open to exploitation. Ideally, security testing is implemented throughout the entire software development life cycle so that vulnerabilities may be addressed in a timely and thorough manner.
