Orthus releases “Evolution of Security Testing” Analysis
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – July 23 2008 - Orthus Limited today published an analysis of 100 in depth security tests conducted over the last five years, providing an insight into how both security weaknesses and attack vectors have evolved – and how organisation’s defences have changed in response.
The analysis looked at the results from 100 baseline security testing engagements delivered since the beginning of 2004. Tests for the study were selected on the basis that both the network and application layers were included in the scope. All tests included a complex web application and were delivered across a range of industry sectors including banking, insurance, finance, retail, manufacturing, transport, utilities, health and education.
Overall just under 2,000 individual vulnerabilities included in the test findings were analysed.
