Web Application Penetration Testing

Web Application Penetration Testing

What is Web Application Penetration Testing?

An application pen test aims to identify security vulnerabilities resulting from insecure coding practices or underlying platform weaknesses of software or a website.

Website security testing is named differently, often based on the name of applications, platforms, or popular software in use.  Web application security assessments are beneficial security measures along with web application firewall (WAF) usage and these do not negate each other. There is the history of WAF bypasses in the past and it is then an application code that should come up to the task. Ensuring secure coding practices is a comprehensive way to secure an application.

Our services can be commissioned to assess in-house developed applications, off-the-shelf, or cloud service provider applications. For example:

  • WordPress penetration testing, or similar CMS (Content Management System) application penetration test
  • OWASP Penetration testing
  • eCommerce businesses requiring Magento pen test or WordPress pen test
  • More complex platforms such as Banking login product security, Gambling platforms web security, or eCommerce security

What type of penetration testing does your business need?

The following questions are helpful in deciding why and what type of web application penetration testing service a business requires.

  • Could your website compromise lead to a data breach?
  • Could your platform or application be exploited to access the underlying network?
  • Are your development teams aware of API security risks?
  • How is your CMS or off-the-shelf CMS security?
  • Whether any processing or storing of payment details is performed securely?
  • Is your application holding static content only, with a shared database instance?
  • Whether any PII (Personally Identifiable Information) is stored in the shared database instance at the backend.

Most importantly, irrespective of your product, platform, or network provider, Have you independently validated your security controls?

Types of Application Pen Testing

Web Application Penetration Testing
A secure web application forms the basis of any business trading on the Internet. Without security in mind, applications are a treat for online fraudsters to target genuine unsuspecting users.
Thick client application pentesting
Thick or compiled applications are popular in an enterprise for their internal operations. Legacy thick client applications could have inherent problems waiting to be discovered or rather exploited
Secure code review
Secure Code review is the process of manually reviewing the source code that would highlight issues missed during a black box pentest. This review helps to detect the inconsistencies overlooked during all other security assessments.
Threat modelling
Threat modeling service deals with helping customers to identify, communicate, and understand threats and mitigations within the context of protecting the most valuable data.
API security testing
APIs are the backbone of architecture backing the digitally connected world. Cyber assurance for public and private API web services used by Mobile, Web Applications, and Thick clients.
Database security review
Data breaches are directly related to extracting data from databases. Validation of security controls around data storage helps organizations protect the stored data. This includes both cloud and traditional database storage systems.
