Web application and API testing

Tested and secured.

We help improve the security of your web applications and web services.

Web applications are everywhere and their use has grown exponentially over the past decade. The global nature of the Internet exposes web applications to a vast number of attacks of various levels of scale and complexity.

Web application testing allows to identify and either eliminate or mitigate security vulnerabilities in order to reduce the exposure of your business to hackers and other malicious actors.

Typical web application testing process

Our security engineers are here to support you
and help you secure your web applications and web services.

Step 1

Scope identification

The process starts with an identification of the scope of systems that will be tested and the timeframes allocated to the testing.

Step 2

Application penetration testing

We identify and attempt to exploit vulnerabilities and business logic flaws using a structured methodology based on the OWASP.

Step 3

Remediation of vulnerabilities

We provide a detailed report the provides useful guidance on how to eliminate vulnerabilities and reduce risks.

Step 4

Retest and resolution

We will re-run the testing on the previously identified flaws to confirm satisfactory resolution of each finding.

How does web application testing work?

During testing, we simulate a real attack against your web applications or web services using the same techniques used by hackers to gain access to sensitive data.

Our penetration testers use their skills and experience to detect and exploit vulnerabilities. Unlike an automated scan, human intelligence is used to expose the effects of actual application flaws to your business.

We also cover all common web application vulnerabilities listed in the most up-to-date OWASP Top 10 list.

OWASP Top 10:2017 Web Application Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability
Description
Injection
Injection flaws, such as SQL injection, LDAP injection, and CRLF injection, occur when an attacker sends untrusted data to an interpreter that is executed as a command without proper authorization.
Broken Authentication and Session Management
Incorrectly configured user and session authentication could allow attackers to compromise passwords, keys, or session tokens, or take control of users’ accounts to assume their identities.
Sensitive Data Exposure
Applications and APIs that don’t properly protect sensitive data such as financial data, usernames and passwords, or health information, could enable attackers to access such information to commit fraud or steal identities.
XML External Entity
Poorly configured XML processors evaluate external entity references within XML documents. Attackers can use external entities for attacks including remote code execution, and to disclose internal files and SMB file shares.
Broken Access Control
Improperly configured or missing restrictions on authenticated users allow them to access unauthorized functionality or data, such as accessing other users’ accounts, viewing sensitive documents, and modifying data and access rights.
Security Misconfiguration
This risk refers to improper implementation of controls intended to keep application data safe, such as misconfiguration of security headers, error messages containing sensitive information (information leakage), and not patching or upgrading systems, frameworks, and components.
Cross-Site Scripting
Cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws give attackers the capability to inject client-side scripts into the application, for example, to redirect users to malicious websites.
Insecure deserialization
Insecure deserialization flaws can enable an attacker to execute code in the application remotely, tamper or delete serialized (written to disk) objects, conduct injection attacks, and elevate privileges.
Using Components With Known Vulnerabilities
Developers frequently don’t know which open source and third-party components are in their applications, making it difficult to update components when new vulnerabilities are discovered. Attackers can exploit an insecure component to take over the server or steal sensitive data.
Insufficient Logging and Monitoring
The time to detect a breach is frequently measured in weeks or months. Insufficient logging and ineffective integration with security incident response systems allow attackers to pivot to other systems and maintain persistent threats.
