Cloud computing has influenced IT delivery services (including storage, computing, deployment, and management) with the maturity of automation and virtualization technologies. With these maturing technologies, a major obstacle in the adoption of cloud computing is security. Cloud security testing, as a relatively new service model, allows IT security testing service providers to perform on-demand application security testing in the cloud. This allows organizations to control costs while maintaining secure applications. Thus, the objective of cloud-based applications security testing is to enable these service providers to leverage cloud technologies and solutions in a secure manner.
