Application security assessment is the process of testing applications to find threats and determining the measures to put in place to defend against them. Through the assessment process, organizations can evaluate the current security posture of their applications and determine the next steps for further protecting their software from future exploits. Most organizations conduct application security assessments on a regular basis to ensure their security measures are up-to-date and effective.
