Web application security testing is performed to identify the vulnerabilities in a web application. With the increasing adaptation of web technologies across several areas, web applications have become a very viable attack surface if left with an untailored security outlook. Hence, assessments like web application security help the developers remediate vulnerabilities that are found during the process thereby and enhance the overall security of the web application.

Web Application Security Testing

Web application security testing as per the OWASP Top 10 list, helps to identify many unattended issues related to programming, file access and configuration etc which may turn out to be vulnerabilities, causing a potential impact on the organization.

Regular assessments as such help safeguard the application from any unauthorized access which can cause an impact on the organization both in reputation and resources.

Methodology

  • Information Gathering

    Post scope definition, we enumerate the scoped systems to gain information about the potential vulnerabilities.

  • Reporting

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

  • Vulnerability Analysis and Exploitation

    Identify the security risks that could be vulnerable and attempt to exploit to gain access to additional potential assets.

  • Confirmatory Assessment

    Web Application and services are re-tested to validate the applied fix after remediation for the identified observations

  • Post-Exploitation

    Assess the value of the compromise machine entrypoint to determine further exploitation.

  • Final Reporting

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

benefits

Web application security testing is a continuous improvement process securing the data and the reputation of the firm. The benefits of 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 web application security testing program provides the following benefits :

  • Possible prevention of hacking attacks

  • Identification of application security issues before the bad guys

  • Ease to adhere to any compliance regulations and standards

  • Better assurance towards application security

frequently asked questions

OWASP Top 10, SANS 25, NIST, PCI and all applicable industry security frameworks are the usual standards that are followed for VAPT of web applications.

Best Scanning Practice includes performing all scans and re-scans within 30 days. Also, organizations should deploy all vulnerability patches having Critical and High severity in 15 days. If organizations are unable to fix any vulnerability within 30 days, then the particular vulnerability is to be reported, so that the alternative controls to mitigate the risk could be applied and the organizations can conduct assessment for the particular finding in the next scan.

The report defines an objective and a detailed risk description for every reported vulnerability.
● Identified vulnerabilities with Proof-of-Concept (POC) collected while performing the security assessment.
● All the reported vulnerabilities in the report are categorized into severity levels such as ‘Critical,’ ‘High,’ ‘Medium’ , ‘Low’ and ‘Info’ as per their Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) score, depending on the risk and the potential business impact it may cause due to vulnerability exploitation.
● Recommendations for the effective mitigation and closure of the identified vulnerabilities are assigned and mentioned in the report.

It takes 4-5 days to complete the web application test (might vary depending upon the complexity of the application) and 1-2 days for the reporting.
