protecting your critical web applications
A web application is a broad term for an application which can be accessed by users through a web browser. This can be a public web browser, a specific private network or via an interface such as an API.
The importance of web applications cannot be overstated and apps such as websites, third-party software and ecommerce platforms are often pivotal to the day to day operation of your organisation.
The security of web applications is therefore vital and needs to be considered at all stages, from development through to deployment.
the benefits of web application testing
what we test
Our web application testing is tailored to your requirements, whether you’re looking to test the entire application or just specific areas of functionality.
- Native apps
- Authorisation and access control
- Cross-site scripting (XSS)
- SQL injection
- Other injection vulnerabilities
- Cross-site request forgery (CSRF)
- Server-side request forgery (SSRF)
- Insecure file upload
- XML-related issues
- Unsafe deserialisation
- Business logic flaws
- Unnecessary information disclosure
It is impossible to exhaustively cover all possible security vulnerabilities that may affect a web application. Consequently, the aim of our test methodology is to act as a baseline, with additional tests and checks being performed when necessary.
Every web application test we conduct goes through a rigorous process, ensuring you get the best possible outcome for your business. Below we outline the key stages our penetration testing goes through:
We work with you to fully understand your organisation, the web application in question and the desired test outcomes.
2. proposal & prerequisites
A proposal will be drawn up outlining the planned scope of work and the preparations needed to start testing.
Our consultants are given access to the web application, using their expertise to evaluate the product from a security standpoint.
4. ongoing communications
Our consultants will communicate with you throughout the test, to your set requirements.
A comprehensive, quality assured report of test findings will be delivered. Where requested, we can provide reporting to meet to OWASP ASVS requirements.
6. post-test support
Our consultants will be available to offer guidance on any aspect of the report, as well as remediation efforts.
You have the option to retest, ensuring reported vulnerabilities have been addressed.
