WEB APPLICATION PENETRATION TEST
Brisk Infosec Solutions Web Application Penetration Testing evaluates the vulnerabilities of web applications by analysing the unshielded defences within the web applications which are widely used in all enterprises today. We identify security vulnerabilities present in organisation developed or in-house developed web-based applications by providing an effective testing and in-depth reporting services. Brisk Infosec process is tailored to fit your requirements and is highly effective in protecting your business from losing confidential and valuable information.
Brisk Infosec recommends doing Grey Box security assessment which is the combination of Black box security assessment (External Security test) and White Box security assessment (Internal Security Test) according to OWASP-ASVS standards.
Grey Box Web App Security Assessment
The combination of Black Box and White Box security assessment is called as Grey box security assessment. We follow semi-automated scanning to dive deep into your application using manual security audit techniques.
- Black Box web app security assessment
- White box Web app security assessment
- Secure Application Certificate with One Year Support
Black Box Web App Security Assessment
Black box security tests are done to identify and resolve potential security vulnerabilities without logging into web applications, similar to what a hacker would do. This allows us to identify all open exploits and vulnerabilities exposed to the outside world. We follow OWASP ASVS, PTES, NIST and SANS 25 standards for successful black box security assessment.
White Box Web App Security Assessment
As per the OWASP standards, we perform end to end White Box penetration test based on the 11 security testing categories for manual and automated security assessment. This helps us to find all known, unknown and hidden vulnerabilities of the target web application which is exposed to authorised users.
Web Applications have been the centre of all communication nowadays and are utilised all the time. Security breach and loopholes in the very first layer which can withhold crucial data, reports, organisation information and can also interact easily with servers which are a big organisation. It is best practice to do penetration testing for web applications before deploying them in a production environment and also performing penetration testing on web application during a live stream on a regular schedule.
Each and every web application penetration test is conducted consistently using globally accepted and industry standard frameworks. Brisk Infosec conducts the test in the following categories:
- Authentication Testing
- Session Management
- Access Control
- Malicious Input Control
- Data Protection
- Communication Security
- HTTP Security
- Malicious Control
- Business Logic
- Files and Resources
We follow the standards as per the client’s requirement and nature of the Web application, such as:
- PCI DSS
1. The report includes detailed technical descriptions of all the steps undertaken in the test, remediate recommendations remediate those vulnerabilities and all the discovered vulnerabilities and weaknesses.
2. Helps in identifying unknown vulnerabilities.
3. Helps in checking the effectiveness of the overall security policies.
4. Helps in finding the loopholes which can lead to theft of sensitive data.
5. Will safeguarding the Brand Name
Why should I conduct a penetration test?
A penetration test is a simulated attack from the perspective of a bad actor, such as a malicious hacker. The objective is to simulate a cyber security attack and attempt to uncover security vulnerabilities that might otherwise be discovered by hackers. In doing so, you would gain valuable insight into the security posture of the assets and be able to fix them before hackers are able cause serious damage by exploiting them.
How long does it take to conduct a web application penetration test?
The overall time depends on the size and complexity of the in-scope application(s). That said, most tests take anywhere from one week to four weeks, start to finish.
How much does an application penetration test cost?
It is not easy to answer until some level of scoping has been performed. Our scoping process is quick, online and painless. But overall, the complexity of the application will ultimately determine its cost. For example, when determining the work effort, we take the following into account: dynamic pages, APIs, user roles/permissions, overall number of pages, etc.
What is the difference between a Penetration Test and a Vulnerability Assessment?
Vulnerability assessments do not involve Exploitation while penetration testing goes beyond a vulnerability assessment and into Exploitation and Post-Exploitation phases.
