Today in highly connected digital world everyone relies on web and mobile applications. However, these applications can be vulnerable to hackers with malicious intention who can steal, damage or disrupt the services provided by the applications, resulting in financial loss as well as a bad reputation for the app developer or publisher. BugSkan’s cloud-based security scanner helps the app developers identify loopholes or vulnerabilities in the apps. This information can be used to secure the application before it is “hacked”.
