POS Terminal Application Security Testing ascertains to the identification of possible/existing threats and security bugs that would compromise the system and would allow unauthorized persons or systems to access private information stored on the device. Owing to the significant growth in the usage of payment cards in monetary transactions, POS devices play a fundamental role in the entire transaction cycles, managing card data and other sensitive details.

POS Application Security Testing

Hence, it becomes vital for these devices to undergo thorough security assessments even on upgrades at the software level.These testing assist developers in remediating the security bug from the POS Device and application and make the device safe from any unauthenticated or unauthorized actions which can cause an impact on the organization..

Regular assessments as such help safeguard both the hardware and the software application from any unauthorized access which can cost the organization both in reputation and resources


Information Gathering

Post scope definition, we enumerate the POS environment to gain information about the potential vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability Analysis and Exploitation

We identify the entry-points of the application and system components that could be vulnerable and attempt to exploit the identified.

Post-Exploitation Assessment

We assess the value of the compromise machine entry point to determine further exploitation.

Initial Reporting

Share a detailed risk description of every reported vulnerability along with POC, and criticality depending on the risk and potential business impact.

Confirmatory Assessment

POS Environments are re-tested to validate the applied fix after remediation for the identified observations.

Final Reporting

Based on the test results of the confirmatory assessment, a Pass/Fail report is issued.


POS devices involve the integration of multiple modules such as inventory management, financial management, payment gateway solutions etc to reduce the resource pressure required to run the operations. The benefits of POS application security testing run far and help businesses meet their compliance requirements faster.

Standing from a cybersecurity point of view we provide a concise and comprehensive report that details all the necessary aspects of your application that needs to be improved. Our POS security testing program provides the following benefits:

  • Possible prevention of hacking attacks.

  • Identification of POS security issues before the bad guys.

  • Ease to adhere to any compliance regulations and standards.

  • Better assurance towards application security.

frequently asked questions

The approximate time required for POS Terminal Security Testing is 7 Days and 1 Day for Reporting.

POS Terminal Security are typically performed using a combination of manual and automated techniques and technologies to identify vulnerabilities on the application installed in the POS device (depending on scope and goal of the engagement).

The frequency of a POS Terminal Security is determined as per the applicable industry security standards for an organization. It also depends upon the Risk Assessment results. However, as an industry best practice, it is recommended to perform these assessments at least once a year or upon a change in the environment.

Our team will share the pre-requisite documents which mentions all the Testing requirements such as POS device, POS application name, application credentials etc and the clients needs to fill up these documents as per the applicable assessment and share the filled documents.
