What is Web App Penetration Testing?

Application penetration tests reveal real-world opportunities for hackers to compromise applications, allowing for unauthorized access to sensitive data, or system take-overs for malicious/non-business purposes.

Our expert penetration testers will analyze all aspects of your web app to help you stamp out security weaknesses. This helps identify and prioritize organizational risks and forms the foundation of a secure software development lifecycle.


Testing Methodologies

We combine our own expertise with well-known methodologies such as the OWASP Testing Guide and the Penetration Testing Execution Standard. The tests are performed both manually and automatically and we validate all the findings returned by the security scanners. Depending on the complexity and the time available, we also try to demonstrate the vulnerabilities by providing small proof-of-concepts.

Benefits of Web App Penetration Testing

  • Ensure Compliance with PCI DSS and other security standards.
  • Reduce the risk and legal ramifications of a data breach.
  • Verify alignment with OWASP, and ensure that the most common exploitation mechanisms are addressed.
  • Ensure encryption methodologies meet security standards before data is stored in your database.
  • Test crucial aspects of application security, such as: user roles, privilege escalation, password-based access controls and data authentication.
  • Get a threat model and actionable recommendations for your developers to follow during development, or when implementing upgrades.
  • Gain competitive advantage by implementing quality control over application security.
