Web application penetration testing will reveal real-world opportunities for hackers to be able to compromise applications in such a way that allows for unauthorized access to sensitive data or even take-over systems for malicious/non-business purposes.
Application Assessment and Penetration Test
Our methodology takes a multi-pronged approach to application security. Our security professionals conduct intensive application design review, dynamic application testing and comprehensive application code reviews to discover and eliminate vulnerabilities before applications leave the development environment.
At a minimum, the underlying framework is based on the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) but goes beyond the initial framework itself.
Security code review is the process of auditing the source code for an application to verify that the proper security controls are present, that they work as intended, and that they have been invoked in all the right places. Code review is a way of ensuring that the application has been developed to be “self-defending” in its given environment.
Security code review is a method of assuring secure application developers are following secure development techniques. A general rule of thumb is that a penetration test should not discover any additional application vulnerabilities relating to the developed code after the application has undergone a proper security code review.
