Website is the first point of contact with customers, and is the brand value of businesses, whether big or small. Like or dislike percentage of a business website by the customers depends upon how well it is designed and developed. A website, which is graphically appealing, responsive and provides right information, usually catches customer’s attention. But, due to the growing competition and the increasing usage of technologically advanced devices, website security has become the prime concern of the businesses. In fact, it is a challenge that a business needs to deal effectively.
Whether a business is at small scale or at large scale, information security (be it product information, customer information or financial information) is utmost important. Generally, it is a belief among small business owners that their business is too small to get noticed by the hackers; but, they are unaware of the fact that most of the hackers use advanced and automated tools to find out vulnerable websites. A susceptible website is security threat to business, customers and for other businesses, because any data or information provided on such websites will be easily hacked or damaged by the hackers. With strong and highly effective security tools, a business can keep its website secured from all types of security threats. Moreover, to keep websites protected from threats, security testing of web applications is necessary. There are some open source tools that can be used to find-out security flaws in web applications. These testing tools are:
- Zed Attack Proxy
In addition to testing web application for website security, there are other ways through which security of a website can be assured.
- Through password protection
- Using SSL protocol
- By keeping software and security systems updated
- Form validation or sever side validation
- By using web security tools, like Netsparker and OpenVAS
- Prohibiting customers to upload any image file on the website
- Using less information for error messages
For a business, it is not only important to keep website secured from external attacks, but is also important to keep it protected from internal threats. If your network resources of financial value are high and your website is not controversial in any way, you need high security; on the other hand, if your website is controversial, and your servers, site code and applications are complex, your security requirement is relatively lower. But in any of the cases, you need effective tools to keep your website protected.
