Software security testing is a critical process that aims to uncover vulnerabilities, threats, and risks within a software application. By examining the system, it effectively helps mitigate the risk of information loss, revenue loss, and damage to the organization's reputation. This is important for businesses of all sizes, from small to large-scale enterprises, as it helps pinpoint potential weaknesses and loopholes in the software system, whether from internal or external sources.

The global security testing market is experiencing a surge due to the growing reliance on web and mobile-based critical business applications, which necessitates heightened endpoint protection. Enterprises are taking measures to ramp up security to thwart financial losses resulting from increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks.
