Web Application Testing


Organizations often lack the internal resources and expertise to keep up with an ever-changing security landscape, let alone test and assess their networks, applications and overall security programs. They need help elevating their security profile, reducing risk and achieving compliance with applicable laws and industry mandates

Web Application and Mobile Application Security Assessments provide assurance that your web applications, Mobile Applications and APIs are secure. Protect the value of and trust in your brand, while gaining peace of mind by leveraging our deep knowledge of the Tactics, Techniques and Procedures used by threat actors.

The primary objective behind a Web Application Penetration Testing (WAPT) is to identify exploitable web application vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and technical flaws in applications before attackers can discover and exploit them. Web application penetration testing reveals real-world opportunities attackers could use to compromise applications to gain access to sensitive data.

You may already have security systems in place to protect your infrastructure, but applications should be included as part of your overall vulnerability risk management strategy. Applications are most often the attack vectors through which attackers can compromise IT ecosystems.

Securing your applications starts long before they get into production

As the number and severity of digital data and privacy threats grow, security testing services have become a critical component of the software development lifecycle. This presents a number of significant challenges for digital delivery teams :

  • High-priority vulnerabilities that create the potential for cost-sensitive legal issues
  • Proper setup of security testing environments and labs
  • The need to test hidden parts of applications
  • Standard software release models that are not designed for security testing
  • Automating security testing services to minimize impact on cycle time
  • Finding the right resources and skills to cover a broad digital footprint
  • Understanding both the technical and economic impacts involved with security threats

We offer testing and assessments that address logical, physical, and technical and nontechnical threats to your environment. We can help you identify the gaps that expose you to risk and help you construct a stronger security posture.
Our web application penetration testing methodology is as follows:

  • Reconnaissance – Searching the Internet for the customer’s public-facing presence and information using OSINT
  • Network Surveying and Services Identification – Sketching a picture of what the customer’s perimeter looks like to the outside world
  • Manual Environmental Testing – Analyzing gathered data to build and execute an attack plan
  • Password Cracking – Attempting to crack any password hashes or brute force any authenticated mechanisms
  • Manual Application Testing - OWASP Testing Methodology including Access Control / Authorization, Authentication, Session Management, Configuration Management / Web Application Architecture Review, Error Handling, Data Protection, Input Validation
  • Root Cause Analysis and Reporting – Identifying the root causes of the issues to be classified and compiled into a final deliverable
