Application Security Testing

An application security test is a method of assessing the security of an application and evaluating the effectiveness of controls that are implemented to protect the application and organization from risks posed by application-based flaws. Specifically, application security testing assesses application vulnerabilities that may jeopardize the confidentiality, integrity and availability of critical or sensitive data and establishes the priority to eliminate vulnerabilities or mitigate their potential impact to the organization.

What can application security testing do for you?

Application security testing helps an organization identify and remediate application-related vulnerabilities and flaws before hackers can exploit those vulnerabilities and flaws and gain access to the organization's systems, resources and confidential information.

ControlCase's application security testing service helps clients to objectively and independently assess the quality and control environment of the application which is an important consideration for a mature security management program. It is a key requirement within the majority of industry related standards and regulations, such as PCI and HIPAA.
