Advice on Security , evolution of A perl Application

Hello Dear Experts

I have developed a Web Based Tool in Perl with Oracle as backend . I have used all the cycles of SDLC and now I need to know more about the Security of such kind of application, Evolution .
What I need to know more is what are the special security features that one needs to implement in web based tool and what kinds of tools are used in testing
Thank you

You originally mentioned it was a web based Perl tool, so I naturally assumed it was CGI.  How do you access the interface then?
