WEB APPLICATION PENETRATION TEST
Analyze – OFFENSIVE SECURITY, RED TEAM
The speed of change in application development is accelerating. Make sure your security is keeping pace by regularly seeking out and fixing bugs.
Like the Enterprise Penetration Test, a Web Application Penetration Test (WAPT) is a focused attempt to gain access to sensitive information and critical assets, but with a different scope and set of possible vulnerabilities. It can be done on any functional web application, including those that have not yet been released.
If your application is still in early development, consider our application security services, which focus on designing secure systems by default and enforcing adherence through guardrails, not gates.
During a WAPT, we use a variety of techniques to get to the root of your potential web application security vulnerabilities. Our testers have a background in both offensive security and secure software development, which allows for a comprehensive understanding of your web applications’ inner workings and tradeoffs.
If this service doesn't quite fit what you're looking for, check out our cloud security, secure application design review, and DevSecOps services, which focus on protecting the environment where applications typically run and adding security into the processes that get them there.
Web Application Penetration Testing includes:
- Open-source intelligence (OSINT) and threat modeling to uncover weaknesses such as information leakage or exposure of sensitive information.
- Collaboration with your quality assurance, product, and/or software development teams to understand the application's use cases, constraints, and intended design.
- Comprehensive reporting optimized for the teams tasked with considering the recommendations, those who oversee the program, and third-party auditors.
- Leveraging the credentials of numerous users per persona to identify cross-user abuse.
- Static and dynamic analysis (where applicable).
- Investigation of application-specific vulnerabilities such as injection, authentication and authorization flaws, sensitive data exposure, cross-site scripting (XSS), insecure deserialization, and cross-origin resource sharing (CORS).
