As the software industry continues to mature, software companies are realizing that they must dedicate more resources to quality assurance (QA) processes. But even though security testing as part of an overall QA process for products shipped to customers is starting to gain acceptance in the software industry as a necessity, the majority of software vendors pay little to no attention to the security of the tools they use internally. In this article, the author explore why testing (security testing in particular) on internal tools should be incorporated into the QA process. In short, a responsible software company shouldn't produce insecure software, regardless of whether this software is meant for internal use only.
