Vulnerabilities in web applications are a major vector for cyber-crime. In large organizations, vulnerable web applications comprised 54% of all hacking breaches and led to 39% of compromised records, according to the 2012 Data Breach Investigation Report by Verizon Business. This paper describes how large enterprises can effectively discover, catalog and scan web applications to control this major risk vector as part of their organization’s overall vulnerability management program.

A zero-day threat is a vulnerability that becomes known to the vendor on the same day it becomes known to the public, meaning IT assets targeted by a zero-day threat won't have a patch available when it's needed. However, zero-day attacks operate in a realm of the probable - they work only because there are exploitable vulnerabilities within IT systems. Many of these can, and should be prevented. This guide describes why organizations are vulnerable to zero-day attacks, and what you can do to add a zero-day offense to your existing vulnerability management processes to protect your organization's assets and data.

This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day. From drive-by downloads to spearfishing to XML injection, web-borne threats represent a significant new risk for businesses. The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with: • 100% protection against known viruses • Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database • Extended protection for smartphones and tablets • Simplified web-based management

Welcome to Web Application Security For Dummies! Web applications have become the Achilles heel of IT security. Web application vulnerabilities are now the most prevalent at more than 55 per cent of all server vulnerability disclosures. This figure doesn't include vulnerabilities in custom-developed web applications, so it may be just the tip of the iceberg. This book is all about understanding how to quickly find and fix vulnerabilities in web applications. The goal is to prevent attackers from gaining control over the application and obtaining easy access to the server, database, and other back-end IT resources.
