What is Web Security?
Web security, or web application security, is a category of information technology security which caters specifically for websites, web applications and other web services.
Web security aims to secure confidential online data and protect it from unauthorized access, modification or misuse.
Much like app security, web security functions as a means to determine levels of user access, separate genuine users from those with malicious intent, identify and close application vulnerabilities and protect organisation critical data from loss or harm.
Furthermore, web security protocols aim to reinforce the four principles of security – confidentiality, integrity, availability and nonrepudiation – to ensure your site or web application falls in line with industry best practices and web security standards.
By applying standard security checks at each stage of your site development process, including threat modeling, risk analysis, static analysis, and digital signatures, you can guard against digital attacks and ensure your site remains uncompromised.
Some of the more most forms of exploitable vulnerability include cross-site scripting, path disclosure, SQL injection, DDOS attacks and arbitrary code execution.
