Security Testing

Inbuilt vulnerabilities undermine the security of applications. Since a majority of these vulnerabilities are found in the application layer, there is an increased emphasis on application security testing. Security testing is now being rapidly integrated with mainstream Quality Assurance (QA) activities.
