Application Penetration Testing
An Application Penetration Test is an ethical attack simulation that is intended to expose the effectiveness of an application's security controls by highlighting risks posed by actual exploitable vulnerabilities. The Penetration Test model is built around a manual testing process. This process is intended to go much further than the generic responses, false positive findings and lack of depth provided by automated application assessment tools. Some of the most common vulnerabilities and are top rated internationally are as follows:
- Input Validation
- Buffer Overflow
- Cross Site Scripting
- URL Manipulation
- SQL Injection
- Hidden Variable Manipulation
- Cookie Modification
- Authentication Bypass
- Code Execution
- Other Common Software Attacks
Using our industry accepted methods, we are able to demonstrate actual exploitable vulnerabilities within an application. The testing results provide a detailed deliverable with both tactical and strategic recommendations that are both actionable and advisory in nature. This practice aids clients in pinpointing flaws and mitigating the risk of compromise.
The results of every Application Penetration Test include complete details on application security issues, exploitation results, and both tactical and strategic recommendations.
Web-Based Application Penetration Testing
The increased use of varied Web applications to handle confidential data is a concern for many organizations. While the comfortable interface of a Web-based application is certainly convenient, it is accompanied by an increased risk. Using our tools to conduct an application penetration test on Web-based applications provides clients with a comprehensive penetration test of the entire application environment. These applications can be both internally and externally facing requiring either onsite or offsite (remote) testing by our team of application security experts.
Thin Client Application Penetration Testing
While Web-based applications garner much more of the security industry's attention, thin client application security is no less important. We can conduct testing of thin client applications provides clients with a comprehensive test and exposes risks associated with these types of applications.
Thick Client Application Penetration Testing
Just as thin clients are often overlooked, thick client applications are often ignored during security testing. Limited or no reliance on a server does not eliminate risk of data compromise. We routinely conduct testing of all types of thick client applications — ranging from mission-critical business applications to video games.
Mobile Device and Mobile Application Penetration Testing
The dramatic increase in the availability and use of mobile devices and applications has left organizations questioning their mobile security posture. Mobile policies such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) have only added to the issue. Our Mobile Device and Mobile Application Penetration Testing can help organizations pinpoint and correct flaws in their mobile applications and devices as well as understand risks posed by new mobile platforms.
Secure Development Training
Internal developers creating applications are not always aware of current security risks, vulnerabilities or exploits. As a supplement to performing code review, we also provide a customized training class to an organization's developers based upon industry best practices and the results of the actual reviews performed. This service has been found to be more effective in mitigating future secure coding errors by developers because they are trained on examples taken from their applications.
