Security Testing Services

According to Gartner, 75 percent of all cyber-attacks occur through web applications. A study conducted by Aberdeen Group, involving over 150 organizations, says that the average cost of remediating a single application security incident is approximately US$300,000. Furthermore, in a survey of IT and security professionals conducted by Check Point, 42 percent companies said that a mobile security incident costs them over US$250,000. The penalties for not being PCI DSS compliant range from US$5,000 to US$500,000, with the fines being levied by banks and credit card institutions. Given these figures, cyber security is an obviously major concern for organizations and getting it wrong can burn a large hole through their pockets.

NASSCOM claims that the current share of cyber security is US$1.5 billion and that this figure is likely to grow to US$35 billion by 2025. The worldwide cybersecurity market size (as per Gartner) will touch US$170 billion by 2020. Nearly 1,000 startups will emerge in the security domain over the next 10 years.

The application security testing market size will reach US$4.96 billion by 2019 while the mobile security market could reach US$34.8 billion by 2020. Some of the top breaches we have witnessed over the last three years include cyber-attacks on Sony Pictures, eBay, Target, a Bitcoin bank, Natural Grocers, Apple, Anthem, Home Depot, JP Morgan Chase, Heartland, the US Military and Ashley Madison.

Application security testing

Application security testing is an approach to validate security requirements and uncover vulnerabilities in an application (web / mobile / thick client / web services) and its associated components, by performing static and dynamic security testing. Security testing is becoming a crucial validation activity. It cuts across the lines of business (LOB), enterprise testing, and shared services. Thus, chief information security officers (CISOs) and several information security groups are looking to add security testing as a new service line.
