Application Security Testing
To strengthen the security of web applications, web developers and security administrators test and gauge the security strength of that application by using both manual and automated security techniques. The need for web application security testing is to identify and investigate the extent and criticality of vulnerabilities found in Web Applications, including front-end and back-end systems so that later the risk of anonymous access or cyber-attacks can be reduced to a certain extent. Otherwise, it would end up in the following.
- Loss of customer trust.
- Disturbance to your online means of revenue generation/collection.
- Website downtime, time loss and expenditures in recovering from damage (reinstalling services, restoring backups, etc.)
- The cost associated with securing web applications against future attacks.
- Data leakage.
- Related legal implications and fees for having lax security measures in place. Approach to Application Security Testing. Our security team will analyze the application, its workflows, business logic, and functionalities with the help of this analyzed data we think like an external attacker.
Application Threat Profiling
Based on the application analysis, our testing team develops a custom threat profile for the application under test.
Security Assessment & Attack Simulation
Based on the investigation, our team performs testing by using manual tools or automated tools. The list of vulnerabilities are identified & validated.
Reports with Remedial Actions
Our testing report consist of detailed report for the technical team and summary report for the executive management. We maintain international standards for all reports, also we provide remedial actions to be performed.
Re-test of the reported vulnerabilities
Re-tests of all identified vulnerabilities are conducted so that we could assure you that they are minimal.
Features of Application Security Testing
- Providing the organization a detailed view of potential threats faced by an application.
- Help the organization in identifying programming errors that lead to cyber-attacks.
- Provide risk management.
Based on the information gathered, our pen tester tries to attack the application. The pen testing is classified into three types Black-box, Gray-box, and White-box. The pen tester attempts to exploit the vulnerability in order to gain sensitive information or perform malicious activities.
Our report involves discovered vulnerabilities, consequences to the business and possible remediation or recommendations.
- Application Mapping
Votz Communications assists organizations in performing the yearly PCI risk assessment which aids in identifying the risks which could potentially impact the security of cardholder data.
- Client-side Attacks
The analysis of temporary storage, sensitive information, and client-side encryption are done.
- Network Layer Attacks
The mode of communication is found out and it is thoroughly studied and analyzed that any data loss exists in between the communication.
- Server-side Attacks
The security level of the server is found in this process.
