The web is everywhere and it’s not an exaggeration.
More and more application manufacturers move from dedicated desktop interfaces to web interfaces. You are probably using a web-based email system. Chances are that you are creating your documents using a web platform. If you develop applications, there is a big probability that these applications use a web interface, too.
This is not just the case with desktop computing. Mobile technologies are also based on the web. Most mobile apps communicate with servers using web APIs.
We also see an increase in the adoption of smart devices. If you use such devices in your enterprise, most of them probably have web interfaces. Network equipment and security cameras are usually controlled and configured via web interfaces. Most business and consumer IoT devices use the web to communicate with the user and they also communicate with back-end systems using web APIs.
The conclusion is: To secure your systems, you must secure web interfaces.
However, enterprise security faces a much bigger problem than potential new attack vectors. Businesses grow quickly but the number of security experts available for hire does not keep up. For years, we have been facing a major shortage of skilled security personnel. Predictions are even worse – the skill gap is most likely going to keep growing.
This Acunetix whitepaper shows you the methods that you can use to improve the security of all your web interfaces and reduce the workload for your security personnel, thus mitigating the skill gap.
