Protecting online applications from hacking attempts is the prime concern to run a successful online business. Failing to protect web applications from malicious attempts leads to financial loss, legal complications and reputation damage. There are several legal requirements like PCI-DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA and HIPAA enforced on the online business to help protect customers sensitive data from theft and misuse.
