Web Application Penetration Testing

Web Application Penetration Testing Services

Overview

Modern organizations significantly depend on the smooth and secure functionality of web applications. Unfortunately, both small and large-scale organizations don’t prioritize security testing of their web applications. As a result, attackers can easily compromise these applications, disrupt business functionality, and gain unauthorized access to sensitive data. As numerous organizations falsely trust in the accuracy of automated web application security scanners, they’re left with unidentified loopholes in their application’s functionality, source code, and infrastructure. 

What is Web Application Penetration Testing?

Preforming a penetration test on a web app involves following a set of methodical processes that includes enumerating the target application, identifying vulnerabilities, and then exploiting the vulnerabilities that could be leveraged to compromise an application. Throughout a web application pen test, a penetration tester or a cyber security specialist evaluates an application’s security by exploiting it, just like an attacker would. As an example, the specialist will look into how an unauthorized person could acquire access to the application’s sensitive data.

For this purpose, a web application penetration test helps organizations to find security flaws in applications that could be readily exploited by adversaries. At the very least, a web application penetration test includes checks for the following vulnerabilities (included in the OWASP Top 10 Web Application Security Risks):

  1. Broken Access Control
  2. Cryptographic Failures
  3. Injection
  4. Insecure Design
  5. Security Misconfiguration
  6. Vulnerable & Outdated Components
  7. Identification & Authentication Failures
  8. Software & Data Integrity Failures
  9. Security Logging & Monitoring Failures
  10. Server-Side Request Forgery

How we do it?

Web application penetration tests are security assessments curated to analyze the architecture, design, and configuration of web applications. Our team makes use of advanced web application security skills necessary to perform a manual and thorough penetration test against modern web applications. Further on, we offer code-assisted penetration tests to explicitly understand the application, detect deep-seated issues in source code, and reduce the number of false-positive findings.

At Redfox Security, we leverage the following testing methodologies:

  • OWASP Top 10 (and beyond!)
  • OWASP ASVS
  • OWASP Testing Guide
