What is web application security?
Web application security is a central part of any web-based business. It deals particularly with the security around websites, web applications and APIs.
A web application is any website that is interactive, even if all a website has is a way to login, it becomes an application because there is an element of logic and programming behind the scenes.
A web application can be subject to flaws, so web application security is the practice of discovering and patching those flaws.
How to stop web application attacks
Attacks against web applications are constant, using controls such as web application firewalls (WAFs) and distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigators can be used to protect web applications from active threats. Strong authentication procedures, regularly checking for and patching vulnerabilities and having secure software development practices can also aid in threat prevention.
