What is Web Vulnerability Testing?

In Web Vulnerability, WebScan Suite by N-Krypt

It can be difficult enough understanding all of the options available within the IT Security space, let along knowing which ones you need and which ones can wait later.

This article will attempt to explain what Web Vulnerability testing is, and how this might apply to your business.
The subject matter of Cyber Security is quite large. It includes every part of your business from your inside employees to outside contractors, partners, and vendors. It includes documented policies, processes, software, hardware, and security auditors poking into any area where a potential security hole might exist.

Where Web Vulnerability testing comes into play is it’s generally considered the first step in tackling your External Security Holes by attempting to determine how external hackers may be able to compromise your system. In this case, your system would include anything connected to the World Wide Web. This can include your website, your private partner application, your patient portal, or any other customized web application your company uses.
What comes out of a successful Web Vulnerability Assessment is a clear understanding of where your areas of weaknesses are. It is this initial series of tests that allows your IT department or security staff to begin a plan of action to remediate those findings. Web Vulnerability Testing is not the end-all solution for all of your Cyber Security needs, but it is usually the first and most critical piece to first understand where you might be vulnerable. And considering new threats that emerge daily (what is otherwise called ZERO-DAY threats), it is important that you maintain these web vulnerability detections to ensure you can help minimize your weaknesses.
