Web Application Penetration Test

assess your critical Web Applications for Security Vulnerabilities with a Web Application Penetration Test.

Web technologies have advanced in recent years. This advancement and reliance on web technologies means that we have become more exposed to security risks associated with these applications. Our web application penetration test can help you find and resolve the risks no matter how big or small.

Why get a web application penetration test?

Identify security vulnerabilities within your Web Applications that enable you to proactively remedy any issues. Improve your security posture, getting a regular web application test helps your company remain compliant with various regulatory bodies which mandate regular security testing. 

Article 32 of the GDPR instructs companies to implement:

a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing

Article 32 (1,d)

What do we test for? 

We believe that companies should not just not test for the OWASP Top 10 (Check out our OWASP Flash Cards), as your application might be vulnerable to number 11. Therefore, we test every application using the standard defined by OWASP. The following headers will give you some idea of what areas of the web application we will test for.

  • Information Gathering
  • Configuration and Deployment Management Testing
  • Identity Management
  • Authorisation Testing
  • Authentication Testing
  • Input Validation Testing
  • Testing for Weak Cryptography
  • Business Logic Testing
  • Client Side Testing
  • Testing for Error Handling
  • Business Logic Testing
  • Session Management Testing

What are the risks? 

External facing Web Applications used by businesses are by nature publically accessible. They are an easy target for attackers, it can be difficult for many companies to distinguish between a regular user of the application and an attacker. There have been many publicised data breaches that have been caused by insecure web applications, this is why it’s so important that we discover the vulnerabilities before the attackers do. 

Protecting these applications from new threats is challenging. The topic of security can often be difficult for developers, who may not be security aware and who are working with a deadline.
