On-demand application security testing, scaleable & flexible
Applications are the backbone of today’s businesses and securing them is vital for your business continuity and success. Challenges associated with application security must be addressed efficiently and effectively. A robust application security strategy is essential for an organization’s reliability and stability.
Automated OWASP Scan
All web application security assessment utilizes the automated application security scanners for known vulnerability identification.
Detailed Manual Testing
Our security analysts performs exhaustive manual web security testing to identify weaknesses in the web application security and business workflows.
Above and Beyond Security Testing
ValueMentor security team performs web security testing above and beyond the OWASP & SANS listed vulnerabilities.
Our application security testing report contains details such as Vulnerabilities, Risks, Threat factors. A complete remediation plan also provided for quicker mitigation of risks.
Understand the application
The first stage of the web application security testing is to understand the web application. Our team will analyse the application functionality, user roles, business logic and the application structure. If code review is involved, application code base is reviewed. This process helps our ethical hacking team identify the attack vectors potentially used by hackers.
The next stage of an application security test is to create a threat profile of the application. Our threat models are based on your business case for application security requirement. This leads to customized security testing which goes above and beyond the generic web application penetration testing.
Create Web Application Security Test Plan
The web application security test plan provides the testing approach to be used to perform the security tests. The test plan will address the potential approaches to exploit vulnerabilities that would result in compromising user privileges, business logic, transactions, or exposing sensitive data.
Perform Application Penetration Tests
In this stage, ValueMentor security testing team executes the application security test plan. However, unlike software testing, the output of a security test is not always as pre-defined and hence the plan needs continuous updates as it evolves.ValueMentor Security testers utilizing their extensive experience pivots the plan to simulate real hackers. This ultimately leads to finding more vulnerabilities that may lead to breaches
Identify remedial actions
The vulnerabilities are ranked based on various factors. The factors are not just the universal ranking of the vulnerability, but also include considerations such as exploitability, availability of public exploits, ease of exploitation, etc.
Our analysts will then identify the solutions to fix the vulnerability identified. WE will provide the guidance, if required, to the development team to fix the vulnerabilities.
Our application security reports provide actionable information that is suitable for both management and technical teams. Our reports include the following:
1. Detailed report which contains Findings and Recommendation on Fixes
2.CSV file containing all the reported vulnerabilities for easier internal distribution.
3. Automated scan results from scanners.
