Post-test Conference - A post-test conference with management and technical personnel may be arranged to ensure that the risks and mitigation advice are thoroughly understood. We also offer on-going phone and email support during mitigation. Re-test - A re-test may be arranged to ensure the vulnerabilities have been fixed and that no new vulnerabilities have been introduced post-mitigation.
A highly customised and actionable report tailored to your unique business needs is produced at the end of every assessment to include high level management summary, vulnerability details highlighting potential risks to your business and remediation advice.
Please check our Web Application Security Testing section for more information on our testing methodology.
It is highly recommended to carry out a web application penetration test once a year to ensure that your application is protected against new threats that have emerged over the course of the year. For systems handling highly sensitive information, a penetration test is recommended once every six months.
It is highly recommended to get the testing done within the UAT environment so that there is enough time to fix the vulnerabilities before going live. Another test should be conducted after the website goes live in order to ensure that no new vulnerabilities have been introduced during switchover or that no backdoors have been left open in the production environment
A properly commissioned web application penetration test will help you to prevent financial loss through fraud and to meet mandatory regulatory and compliance requirements. It also helps you to protect your business against industrial espionage and demonstrates to your customers and stakeholders that you have taken due diligence to protect your critical business information and their sensitive personal and financial information.
SSL does not protect against all types of attacks. This does not mean that SSL is flawed. It does its job well at protecting what it is supposed to protect. There are many other security controls that are also checked during a web application penetration test, including authentication, access control, session management, input validation, sensitive information leakage and business logic.
Over 80% of Internet attacks occur through vulnerable web applications. All these attacks are not targeted attacks. Attackers trawl the Internet indiscriminately to identify vulnerable websites and use these websites to spread malware and/or to attack other Internet users. If this happens, your website may be blacklisted or even removed by your ISP.
Any system that stores or processes users’ personal information or payment card information must undergo a penetration test to comply with mandatory regulatory and compliance requirements. Companies also commission a penetration test to show due diligence for security and to enhance their brand image.
A Web Application Penetration Test involves an active analysis of your website, highlighting potential security vulnerabilities that could be exploited to compromise the system. These vulnerabilities may include implementation bugs or design flaws. At the end of the test, identified vulnerabilities are presented to the business stakeholders along with risk ratings and remediation advice.
A Penetration Test is a security-testing technique to expose security vulnerabilities within a system and to simulate an attack to exploit the exposed vulnerabilities. A Web Application Penetration Test focuses mainly on exposing and exploiting vulnerabilities at the application layer.
