Web Application Security

Web App Security Testing

To ensure your IT security is effective in deterring cyber attacks from all entry points you need to have your web applications tested. Developers often do not have the sufficient amount of time to spend on security which results in easily compromised web applications. If you are developing an app for your business, or use WordPress, Joomla, ZenCart or any form of Web Application, then you need to make sure they are properly protected by performing a Web App Security Test. A compromised app can lead to poor cyber security and result in stolen sessions IDs (cookies), account information theft, database breaches or malicious code being planted on your website, etc.

Benefits of Web App Security Testing

Happy Customers: Security is a top concern for users and web app providers have the responsibility to ensure the apps they offer will keep user information safe. Proper testing is an integral part of creating a positive user experience and will help guarantee that your users never experience complications with your app and never have to worry about their information being compromised.

Happy Developers: Developers are the ones who bring your app to life and in the process security can often take a back seat when deadlines become an issue. Your development team needs time to focus on working out other kinks and may not have the time or simply the expertise to perform professional grade testing. Empower your team and help your developers stay on track by authorising us to take care of the testing for you.

Happy You: Receive the peace of mind you and your users deserve by securing your web application from both external and internal threats. The losses your business can suffer if your application is hacked and data is compromised can be irreversible. Don’t let the hard work of developing and designing a web application become obsolete in the case of a data breach. Your business and your users will thank you for it.

Our Assessment Methodology 

Application Security Assessments are designed to identify and assess threats to the organization through proprietary applications or those delivered by vendors with little or no customization. Our application security assessment methodology is designed around the following well known security assessment guides such as:

  • OWASP Top 10 (Open Web Application Security Project)

  • Threat Modeling processes such as STRIDE and DREAD

  • OWASP’s Software Assurance Maturity Model (OpenSAMM)

  • Open Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSTMM)

  • Web Application Security Consortium (WASC) guidelines

White Box Testing

White Box testing refers to the process of testing an app with the knowledge of the internals such as its source code and system architecture. This type of test is necessary to gain understanding of what type of threats your application is vulnerable to from within and from any external forces that may have some knowledge of its inner workings. Your applications vulnerabilities can be contained in the apps code of any other software components therefore it is extremely important to test the source code and determine any flaws before releasing to the public.

Advantages

Clean Code: Your source code can be tested for error handling, dependencies, etc. As well as expose unintended hidden code flaws that can be exploited.

Professional Testing: Working with external Web Application Testers to review your application, ensures your app is tested to the highest limits by certified IT specialists who can utilise specialised tools such as analysers, debuggers and fault injectors that are not readily available to internal IT teams.

Black Box Testing

Taking the perspective of an outside attacker, black box testing mimics how a hacker with no inside knowledge could infiltrate your web application. This is a great way to test an apps strength as the Black Box tester will rigorously assault the app with a mass of different inputs without any knowledge of internal exception handling, program execution states or systems, giving an unbiased approach that the developer can’t replicate due to their knowledge of the apps inner workings.

Advantages

Safety: Having your app’s security verified by qualified security specialists helps prevent future vulnerabilities by identifying gaps in its security and patching them before it hits the market.

Credibility: Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with security and privacy regarding with private details and financials, testing your app gives peace of mind to your users and credibility to your app regarding safety.

Efficiency: The advantages of black box testing includes the scalability of the testing, as several testers can work on the app for more thorough and faster results which is extremely convenient when deadlines are an issue. Because the testers don’t need knowledge of the programming language, operating systems, etc, there is no need for code access which means the process is not intrusive, if confidentiality is an issue.

Grey Box Testing

Unlike White or Black Box Tests, a Grey Box analysis is able to identify problems related to end-to-end data as it embraces both development, operating and compatibility environments.

Advantages

Safety: Having your app’s security verified by qualified security specialists helps prevent future vulnerabilities by identifying gaps in its security and patching them before it hits the market.

Credibility: Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with security and privacy regarding with private details and financials, testing your app gives peace of mind to your users and credibility to your app regarding safety.
