Web Application Security Testing

We use a hybrid approach to address all your Web Application Security Testing requirements.

Automated OWASP Scan

Our Web Application Security Assessment uses automated application security scanners for known vulnerability identification.

Detailed Manual Testing

Our security analysts perform exhaustive manual web security testing to identify weaknesses in web application security and business workflows.

Above and Beyond Security Testing

ValueMentor security team performs Application Security Services above and beyond the OWASP & SANS listed vulnerabilities.

Remediation Plan

Our Application Security Testing Report contains details such as Vulnerabilities, Risks, and Threat factors. A complete remediation plan also provided for quicker mitigation of risks.

Web Security Testing Preparation

Our Security Assessment Process involves various stages. The key phases of our Application Security Testing are as follows:

Understand the application

The initial stage of Web Application Security Testing services is to identify complete details of the target application. Our team assesses the application functionality, user roles, business logic and structure of the application. If code review is required, the application code base gets reviewed. This process helps our ethical hacking team determine the attack vectors potentially used by hackers.

Threat Model

The next phase of Application Security Testing is to create a threat profile of the application. Our threat models incorporate business goals alongside application security requirements. It enables customized Application Security Services that go above and beyond the generic web application penetration testing.

Web Application Security Testing

Once the application profile is defined and threat vectors get identified, the security testing team will move the activities to the next stage.

Create Web Application Security Test Plan

The application security test plan provides a detailed approach for performing the test. The test plan includes the potential ways 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’s 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 testing team uses extensive experience to pivot the plan, simulating real hackers. The excercize ultimately leads to finding more vulnerabilities that may lead to breaches.

Application Security Reports

Application Security Reports provide insights for management and technical team about the application tested. The reporting phase has two stages.

Identify Remedial Actions

The vulnerabilities are ranked based on various factors. These factors are not just the universal ranking of the vulnerabilities but also include considerations like exploitability, availability of public exploits, ease of exploitation, etc. Our analysts will then determine the solutions to fix the vulnerability identified. We will provide guidance, if required, to the development team to fix the vulnerabilities.


Our Application Security Reports provide actionable information suitable for management and technical teams. Our reports include the following:
1. Detailed report which contains Findings and  Advice on Fixes.
2.CSV file containing all the reported vulnerabilities for easier internal distribution.
3. Automated scan results from scanners.
