This document is the first statistics report which will be repeated annually, showing tendencies and changes in Enterprise Business Application Security area.
This document will show a result of statistical research in the business application security area made by ERPScan Research Group and OWASP-EAS project. The purpose of this document is to raise awareness about Enterprise Business Application security by showing the current number of vulnerabilities found in those applications, how critical those are and what kind of tendences we see.
Business applications like ERP, CRM, SRM and others are one of the major topics within the field of computer security because these applications store business data, and any vulnerability in these applications will cause a significant monetary loss. Nonetheless, people still don’t pay much attention to enterprise business application area, as we see during our and our collegues’ researches and audits. Business applications are very large and complex systems that consist of different components such as Database server, Front-end, Web server, Application server and other parts. Also, those systems rely on different hardware and software that can have their own vulnerabilities. The purpose of those surveys is to increase awareness about business application security.
